Eugene Goossens: The Apocalypse



Recorded in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House at a live performance presented by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on 13 November, 1982.

Eugene Goossens most ambitious and epic work, The Apocalypse, has had few performances since its premiere in Sydney Town Hall in 1954. This recording was made to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, in 1982. It is a grand work, full of colours and drama, and in the words of conductor Myer Fredman, “the orchestration is brilliant”.
