The long-awaited third volume of Grainger’s orchestral works is released and includes four previously unrecorded versions of his works.

This unprecedented Chandos project has gone from strength to strength and grows in stature with every release. Even now, before its distant completion, it gives an unsurpassed survey of Grainger’s prodigious output.

As in the previous volumes of orchestral works, Richard Hickox is conducting the highly acclaimed BBC Philharmonic.


The majority of Grainger’s compositions were thought out or formulated before his twenty-first year. The years that followed saw the reworking and rearranging of these pieces, and it is true that no new compositional ideas came to him after the death of this mother in 1922, when he was not yet forty. Grainger had always looked forward to the day when he could devote himself to composition. Instead it was the daily round of recitals and his overflowing vitality, which led to engagements in all directions, that gradually caught up with him and towards the end of his life he found himself isolated and at odds with the musical establishment.

In 1956, when the Olympic Games Committee wanted to find an Australian composer to produce music for the opening ceremony, Grainger’s name was put forward, only to be received with derision. His experiments later in life with music making machines that could play his ‘Free Music’ did nothing to enhance his reputation and the musical public began gradually to forget him.

Grainger had always striven against the forgetting of past things, and in order to preserve the physical expressions of the past he amassed a huge collection of all types of materials. These he eventually housed in a building built specially for the purpose in the grounds of the University of Melbourne, without which many of the pieces in this series would not have been possible.


‘The BBC Philharmonic provides first-rate playing and the sound has a wide-range.’
‘BBC Music Magazine’ on CHAN 9493 (Orchestral Works)

‘…exceedingly well done, the playing rich and full-bodied, and the sound crystal clear… definitely belongs in every serious music lover’s collection.
‘American Record Guide’ on CHAN 9493 (Orchestral Works)

‘Grainger enthusiasts will welcome this disc… they are entirely delightful, and are superlatively played under Richard Hickox.’
‘The Sunday Telegraph’ on CHAN 9584 (Orchestral Works 2)
