Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

The first of the Havergal Brian symphonies here receives a passionately committed performance from Slovak forces. Despite a few incidental flaws, it conveys surging excitement from first to last, helped by a rich recording, which gives a thrilling impression of massed forces. The final Te Deum, alone lasting 72 minutes, brings fervent choral wiring of formidable complexity, with the challenge taken up superbly by the Slovak musicians. Originally on Marco Polo, this is now a very real bargain in its Naxos reissue.



Review By Bob Zeidler,Gothic Silk,August 2007

Finally! From Marco Polo to Naxos. And affordable!

Klaus Heymann, the founder of these two labels, was courageous a number of years back, when he released Havergal Brian’s ‘Gothic’ Symphony on his full-price Marco Polo label. I would guess that the album has been a steady, if slow, seller over those years, as it has been the only available recording of this marvelously idiosyncratic work. My own copy, played at least annually (almost ritualistically so) has served me well for most of those years.
