MARK HINDLEY organ
ROYAL SCOTTISH NATIONAL ORCHESTRA conducted by MARTYN BRABBINS
WORLD PREMIERE RECORDING [5]

Havergal Brian’s Second Symphony (1930-31) is music on an epic scale. Partly inspired by Goethe’s play Götz von Berlichingen and scored for a huge orchestra that includes two pianos, three timpanists and an astonishing sixteen horns, the score contains some of Brian’s richest and most immediately appealing music. This revelatory performance by Brian stalwarts the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and conductor Martyn Brabbins is the first commercial recording to feature the full instrumental forces, as envisaged by the composer. This performance of Brian’s Fourteenth Symphony (1959-60) is the first legitimate recording of the work to have been made. Completed when Brian was 84 years old and embarking on an astonishing Indian Summer of creativity that lasted until he was 92, the Fourteenth is more compact, but no less heroic in spirit: a complex single movement encompassing a kaleidoscopic range of moods and providing a perfect introduction to Brian’s late style.

“Enthusiasts of that prolific symphonist Havergal Brian will be well pleased with Martyn Brabbins’s strongly communicative new version of the large scale Second … the first to employ the composer’s full complement of extra horns in the roistering battleground of the third-movement scherzo.” “Brabbins elicits a commendably alert response from the RSNO [Fourteenth Symphony], ripe captured by the microphones, and this is indeed a pairing that deserves every success.” “Dutton’s groundbreaking efforts in this field have winningly built on a tradition established by Richard Itter’s Lyrita Recorded Edition.” Andrew Achenbach, Symphonious Albion, Gramophone, Awards edition 2016
