Copland Appalachian Spring 23’
Gibbs  Symphony No 2 ‘Odysseus’ 60’

Gibbs’ tuneful and evocative choral symphony, which he considered his best, is a rarely-heard masterpiece that tells the well-known story of Odysseus in a style that will be familiar to fans of Vaughan Williams and Parry. In the first half, two favourites of the orchestral repertoire evoke romantic visions of turbulent sea and great American plains.
