Re: Havergal Brian Symphony 28 première recording

Hello Chris, Thank you for your interest. Yes, I did doubt the claims of première recordings so thank you for your input. However, I never said "that earlier Brian performances were by youth and/or scratch orchestras." I was specifically referred to vinyl LPs not radio recordings and purposely wrote "most of these performed by school/amateur orchestras such as the City of Hull Youth Symphony Orchestra and Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra."
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
