Chandos CHAN9757

Edgar Bainton

Symphony #2 (1939-40)

John Gough

Serenade for Small Orchestra (1931)

Hubert Clifford

Symphony 1940 (1938-40)

BBC Philharmonic Orchestra/Vernon Handley
Chandos CHAN9757 72:30

Bainton moved to Australia to take up a conservatorium position and remained there for the rest of his life. Clifford and Gough each left Australia to study in England and remained there. The Bainton symphony sounds much like Arnold Bax while Clifford's symphony has much in common with Walton's 1st and is about the same length. Gough's tiny serenade evokes Frederick Delius. A further CD of orchestral music by Clifford and Bainton is on Chandos CHAN10019, as well as a new release dedicated to Bainton on Chandos CHAN10460.
