Directed by Randall Wood. A group of fanatical Aussie music lovers aspire to break the “curse” of Havergal Brian’s notorious First Symphony (“The Gothic,” 1927) and, unlike those before them, mount a full performance of this largest, longest, and most challenging of symphonies, requiring two orchestras, four brass bands, and five choirs. “Delightful.” –Alex Ross.
