Brangwyn Festival Overture 1981
BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra, Louis Fremaux (conductor), Gillian Weir (organ)
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.
GAZET KRAKOWSKA (transl.)
There was positive feedback from the band and audience about how joyful the piece was – definitely a hit with us.
