A Turandot Suite" draws further music from the Turandot opera, but here the music has been arranged by Brian scholar Malcolm MacDonald who we also have to thank for the splendidly detailed liner notes. Whereas the Three Pieces are taken from Act 1, this selection is drawn from Acts 2 & 3. The music is full of the composer's fingerprints, including brass fanfares, spare scoring interrupted by sudden tutti outbursts, and characteristic use of orchestral colour

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Garry Walker, conductor Havergal Brian (born William Brian; 29 January 1876 – 28 November 1972) was a British classical composer. Brian was extremely prolific, his body of work including thirty two symphonies, many of them extremely long and ambitious works for massive orchestral forces.

Havergal Brian (born William Brian; 29 January 1876 – 28 November 1972) was a British classical composer. Stylistically, he wrote in a late romantic idiom, exhibiting the influence of Gustav Mahler in his ambitious orchestration and progressive tonality.

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Garry Walker. committed performances, caught in excellent sound, too - Gramophone Magazine, August 2011. Release Date: 4th Apr 2011. The long-neglected British composer Havergal Brian (1876–1972) is gradually coming in from the cold, with recordings on Naxos, Dutton, Testament and now Toccata Classics. Self-taught, from a working-class family in Stoke-on Trent, he shot to fame when Henry Wood discovered him for the 1907 Proms; but he remained an outsider to the British musical establishment, and is as much known for his creative persistence in the face of utter neglect as for the extremely serious and ambitious works that he produced

(The) Tigers, Symphonic Variations. 3 Pieces from Turandot. Garry Walker again produces committed playing from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. The two suites from Brian’s second opera, Turandot, are full of fascinating material, the Three Pieces from Act 1, MacDonald’s Suite from Acts 2-3. Toccata’s gems are the climactic ‘Night Ride’ from Faust and electrifying Symphonic Variations from The Tigers. But it’s the Gothic to which I will return most often and I cannot recommend it strongly enough.
