Joubert & Mathias , First Symphonies


Joubert & Mathias , First Symphonies


"Another marvellous disc of two fascinating Symphonic firsts...the Joubert is both instantly accessible yet also profoundly rewarding on deeper acquaintance...the Mathias is a young man's music and the spirit of that is well caught by Groves." Nick Barnard, "Joubert's First Symphony (1955) is a magnificent piece and one of considerable substance and great expressive strength. It displays the still young composer's confidence and mastery. This splendid and heartily committed performance by one of the staunchest champions of British music aptly crowns Joubert's 80th birthday celebrations." Hubert Culot, *** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010
