Symphony No. 31 Havergal Brian; New Russia State Symphony Orchestra; Alexander Walker. Total Playing Time 69:51 performances of notable distinction, of music that is by no means easy to grasp. the undoubted success has to be laid at the feet of Alexander Walker, who clearly has the grasp of this remarkably condensed and unique series of works. a magnificent record.
With conductor Alexander Walker and the New Russia State Symphony Orchestra they got their money's worth. The Russian group clearly handles the dense succession of brass and wind ideas in Brian's music, and Walker gets its rather uncanny feeling of riverine motion, something like what might have happened if Sibelius during his last year had accepted modern harmonic trends. Especially interesting are the Symphony No. 28 and Symphony No. 29, each written in four movements that reveal traces of traditional symphonic form but treat it with complete freedom.

In Symphonies Nos. 28 and 29 Brian turned to the classical four-movement model but one which is wholly and idiosyncratically re-imagined. The intensity and even savagery of No. 28 is balanced by No. 29, Brian’s most lyrical late work. The New Russian State Symphony plays this British music very well, too! Lynn René Bayley. Fanfare – September/October 2015 The playing is confident-even swaggering. The dark Russian color makes the performance seem more integrated. Walker achieves extraordinarily intense playing that illuminates this music to its best advantage.
