Antal Szalai (b1981)

"The performances are strong and impressive, deeply committed, extremely well played, and carefully planned and executed. ...You will not be disappointed with this superb release."American Record Guideon Andrew Penny's Marco Polo recording of Cecil Armstrong Gibbs' symphonies.

Andrew Penny was born in Hull and graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music following clarinet studies with Sydney Fell. As a postgraduate he was the first holder of the Rothschild Scholarship in Conducting, studying with Sir Charles Groves and Timothy Reynish. He worked with Sir Edward Downes in Holland and later at the BBC Conductors' Seminar in 1985.

He has been Musical Director of the Hull Philharmonic Orchestra since 1982, the Head of Woodwind at Hymers College since 1978 and he also directed the Conductors' Course at the University of Hull for many years. In November 1999 he directed two performances of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 8, (The Symphony of a Thousand) as part of the Millennium Celebrations in that city.

Since 1992, Andrew Penny has made over thirty recordings for the Naxos and Marco Polo labels. Most of the output is of British music: symphonies and symphonic works by Sir Malcolm Arnold, Hubert Parry, Cecil Gibbs and Havergal Brian; film music by Vaughan Williams and Walton; theatre music by Sullivan, German and Holbrooke together with light music by Joyce, Duncan and Coates. He has now completed recording the full cycle of Malcolm Arnold's nine symphonies.
