McCABE, J.: Composer, Pianist, Conductor - Symphony No. 1 / Liszt Fantasy / Studies / Tuning (Snashall, McCabe)

This collection brings together several significant recordings of the music of John McCabe, none of which has appeared before on CD. The First Symphony, heard here in its only recording to date, is a work of striking emotional directness and explosive energy. The Fantasy on a Theme of Liszt was described by Harold Truscott as ‘wonderfully organic…a concert piece which should interest any pianist worth his salt’. Scored for very large orchestra, Tuning develops layers of texture and sonority of overwhelming richness. This is the only recording of John McCabe as conductor.
