Product details

G.W.L. Marshall-Hall (1862-1915) was one of Australia's first composers of significance and was described as a "picturesque and powerful influential personality in Australian intellectual life". He dedicated the 'Symphony in Eb' to his "friends and comrades under the Southern Cross", Streeton and Roberts, whom he often associated with at Heidelberg.

Exuberant and rich in orchestral colour with strong thematic ideas, this lively and passionate music breathes the spirit of romanticism, with its Brahmsian instrumental voicing and Wagnerian wind instrumentation. In this historical, first-ever recording of Marshall-Hall symphonies, Melbourne University Professor of Music Warren Bebbington conducts the Queensland Theatre Orchestra. CD notes include an historical essay about Marshall-Hall by Suzanne Robinson.

Duration: 35 min.

Booklet includes historical essay on composer.
