CDLX 7332 John Gardner / John Veale
|Gardner, John||Symphony No. 3 |
Op. 166 E minor
|Royal Scottish National Orchestra - Martin Yates|
|Veale, John||Symphony No. 2 |
Martin Yates and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra make a striking discovery by coupling the second symphonies of John Gardner and John Veale, works dating from 1984-85 and 1965 respectively. Gardner was a well-loved figure in his time, as both teacher and composer, writing an enormous amount of music. The Second Symphony espouses a traditional treatment of the orchestra together with a personal lyricism, which will appeal to all who have taken Malcolm Arnold to heart.
