aus Wikipedia, der freien Enzyklopädie Wechseln zu: Navigation Suche William Havergal Brian 29. Januar in Dresden Staffordshire 28. November in Shoreham-by-Sea Sussex ), war ein englischer Komponist
Bearbeiten Leben und Werk
Brian erwarb sich einen legendären Ruf zur Zeit seiner Wiederentdeckung in den 1950er und 1960er Jahren vor allem wegen der Zahl seiner Sinfonien: 32, eine ungewöhnlich große Zahl für Komponisten nach der Wiener Klassik, und durch ungebrochene Kreativität trotz der Tatsache, dass er den Großteil seines Lebens fast völlig vergessen war. Auch Jahrzehnte nach seinem Tod wird keines seiner Werke häufig aufgeführt. William Brian (er übernahm den Namen „Havergal“ von einer Familie von Kirchenlieddichtern ) war einer der wenigen Komponisten, die der englischen Arbeiterklasse entstammten. Nach dem Besuch der Grundschule hatte er Schwierigkeiten, eine passende Arbeit zu finden (unter anderem arbeitete er in einer Kohlenmine), und brachte sich selbst einige musikalische Grundlagen bei. Vorübergehend war er Organist an der Odd Rode Church im benachbarten Cheshire . 1895 hörte er eine Chorprobe des Werkes King Olaf von Edward Elgar , war bei der Uraufführung dabei und wurde glühender Anhänger der damals modernen Musik, besonders derjenigen von Richard Strauss und den zeitgenössischen englischen Komponisten. Über die Teilnahme an Musikfestspielen entwickelte sich eine lebenslange Freundschaft mit dem etwa gleichaltrigen Komponisten

William Havergal Brian
(b. Dresden, Staffsordshire (England), 1876) (d. Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex (England); 1972) English composer of the generation that followed Charles Villiers Stanford Edward Elgar Charles H.H. Parry , etc (in other words: roughly contemporary with Ralph Vaughan Williams , Granville Bantock, Donald Tovey, Frank Bridge and Samuel Coleridge-Taylor; older than Arthur Bliss, William Walton , etc). Interest in the music of Brian was revived in the last years of his life through the efforts of the young Robert Simpson Brian is now best known (almost notorious) for his "Gothic" Symphony (Symphony No. 1; 1919-27), generally regarded as the largest symphony ever written. Noone seems to be absolutely certain the exact forces required to perform the work, although the minimum number of musicians required is generally considered to be more than a thousand (around 200 players in the orchestra itself; plus 4 brass bands and 4 large mixed choirs). For all this heavy artillery, the "Gothic" is an amazingly lithe creation, a virtuoso musical journey in six movements from the darkness (of war?) into light (the subtitle refers to the Gothic period of art and architecture, not Bram Stokeresque horror).

Please help rewrite this article from a neutral point of view . For blatant advertising that would require a fundamental rewrite to become encyclopedic, use db-spam to mark for speedy deletion (July 2010) William Havergal Brian British classical composer Brian acquired a legendary status at the time of his rediscovery in the 1950s and 1960s for the 32 symphonies he had managed to write, an unusually large number for any composer since Haydn or Mozart , and of which eight were completed after the age of 90. He is also notable for his creative persistence in the face of almost total neglect during the greater part of his long life. Even now, none of his works can be said to be performed with any frequency, but few composers who have fallen into neglect after an early period of success have continued to produce so many serious and ambitious works so long after any chance of performance would seem to have been gone for good.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search This article does not cite any references or sources
Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources . Unsourced material may be challenged and removed (April 2009) The Symphony No. 1 in D minor (also known as "The Gothic" ) by Havergal Brian (1876–1972) was composed between 1919 and 1927, and partly owes its notoriety to being the largest symphony ever composed (described thus by the Guinness Book of Records ). Along with choral symphonies such as Beethoven's Ninth Symphony , or Mahler's Symphony of a Thousand , it is one of a few works attempting to use the musically gigantic to address the spiritual concerns of humanity. With an elaborate key-scheme which begins in D minor and works round eventually to a close in E major, the work is a notable example of progressive tonality
edit Structure
The work is in two parts, each consisting of three movements , with the extra orchestral and vocal forces required for the second part, which sets to music the words of the Latin religious hymn , the Te Deum . The three movements in Part One play for about forty minutes uninterrupted, and set the stage for the

Brian, Havergal,
in full WILLIAM HAVERGAL BRIAN (b. Jan. 29, 1876, Dresden, Staffordshire, Eng.d. Nov. 28, 1972, Shoreham, Sussex), English musician and self-taught composer. In his youth Brian played the violin, organ, piano, and cello. His chief love, however, came to be composition. Between the ages of 20 and 45, he wrote more than 100 songs and some dozen orchestral works, in addition to two cantatas and an opera, The Tigers (begun in 1916), considered a remarkably pointed satire on war. Between World Wars I and II, Brian was a music journalist. Performances of his music were infrequent from 1922 until the 1960s, when a growing audience for his work developed. By then he had completed a vast lyric drama Prometheus Unbound, two concerti, four more operas, and 13 symphonies. His most famous work, Gothic Symphony (1919-27; first performance 1961), requires an orchestra of 200 performers and choirs of 400 to 600. Between 1959 and 1968 i.e., between the ages of 83 and 92Brian wrote 20 more symphonies, bringing the total to 33.

    • Main performer: Adrian Leaper Booklet languages: English Time: 76:55
    The packed-to-the-gills music of British composer Havergal Brian is an acquired taste, but the occasional recordings of his 32 symphonies, many of them written when he was well beyond 80 years old, continue to reveal music that at the very least incorporates its influences (Elgar, Mahler, William Walton ) rather than aping them. In much of Brian's mature music an essentially conservative musical language is subverted by sheer density and motivic subtlety. Among Brian's champions was Leopold Stokowski , who programmed Brian's Symphony No. 6 when both were 91 years old; it would have been nice to hear that performance, for the two artists share a certain extremity of style that seems Romantic but ultimately is distinctively modern. These performances by conductor Adrian Leaper
