Brangwyn Festival Overture 1981

for orchestra

11'00


Commissioned by
Swansea Festival

First performance
BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra, Louis Fremaux (conductor), Gillian Weir (organ)

Reviews
The performance revealed a score of real merit: the suitably festive Allegro is preceded by a Lento of unusually impressionistic sensitivity and harmonic delicacy. A Prom must, if not heard before at the South Bank.

THE SUNDAY TIMES

This piece by a composer from Wales was very much a tour de force and in the grand manner. But there was fastidious subtlety here as well.
