The English composer Havergal Brian (1876–1972) is renowned for his 32 symphonies, 21 of them – written after his 80th birthday – constituting one of the most remarkable Indian summers in the history of music. It is less well known that Brian also composed five operas; since none of them has yet been staged, this album reveals for the first time some of the remarkably inventive and powerful orchestral pieces hidden within those scores.

"...Brian’s music is brilliantly orchestrated, tonal and excitingly diferent... This Toccata Classics release is in state of the art sound-essential for these scores. The BBC Scottish orchestra is in top flight under the sure baton of Gary Walker, who knows how to bring the best out of this widely respected orchestra. This disc is exceptional and is highly recommended for sound, music and performances!  *****

Zan Furtwangler  - AudiophileAudition.com - 25 August 2012


"...With excellent sound, this is a must for anyone who admires Brian’s music."

Barry Brenesal - Fanfare - May/June 2012


"...All in all another stunning disc of great value and musical worth, I hope a third volume will follow... Fascinating … sumptuously romantic … sometimes gawky."
