BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra / Bryden Thomson

Daniel Jones (1912-1993) composed in a widerange of genres, yet the cornerstone of his prolific out put is the Symphony, memorably described by himas ‘a dramatic structure with an emotive intention’. He tackled the form a fresh with each of his 13 examples, of which the first 12 are based on a different note of the chromatic scale. Jones’s Second Symphony was written between March and July 1950 and first broadcast in the Welsh region by an augmented BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra under the composer on 13 September 1951. The Second Symphony places great emphasis onintricate rhythms and combines both lyrical and dance elements. There is a focus on orchestral colour, epitomised by the prominent role given to the celestain the first, third and fourth movements. Expansive, big-boned and at times uncharacteristically discursive, it is Jones’ last symphony conceived on a large canvas :from now on his symphonic works would be increasingly concise and cogent, rejecting any orchestral colour extraneous to the musical argument. Daniel Jones’s Eleventh Symphony in E flat was completed on 7 December 1983 and premiered by the BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra under Sir Charles Groves on 20 October 1984 in the Brangwyn Hall,Swansea.

Commissioned by the Swansea Festival, it isdedicated to the memory of George Froom Tyler, chairman of the festival committee, who had died in1983 and was a friend of the composer. Though each of his thirteen symphonies is aunique and highly personal statement, the cycle as awhole maintains an unwavering consistency of qualityand vision. Daniel Jones demonstrates a stead fast integrity throughout, never bowing to the latest trends.His priority is always to communicate directly with the listener. Paul Conway, 2017
