Synopsis

Album Description
"What a valuable and rewarding release! These vintage recordings [Symphony No.1 & No.3] (made in Kingsway Hall and dating from 1975 and 1967 respectively) have come up as fresh as new paint." - GRAMOPHONE Alan Rawsthorne (1905-1971) is perhaps the only notable composer who started a career as a dentist. Tiring of teeth, he turned to music and had an unusually long gestation as a composer, not achieving any recognition until age thirty-three. His twenty-six film scores eventually made him wealthy, but he wrote also a fine body of concert works. He died relatively young at age sixty-six, never fully accepted by the music establishment in England.
