WILLIAM HURLSTONE (1876-1906): Variations on an Original Theme, The Magic Mirror - Suite, Variations on a Hungarian Air.
Catalogue Number: 04I066
Description: The Original Theme variations date from 1896 and the Hungarian were premiered in 1899. Both, as might be expected from a young composer in this period, are influenced most noticeably by Brahms, possibly via Parry. Magic Mirror (1900) is a 25-minute suite of seven movements, most of which are quite balletic in nature and lighter in style. London Philharmonic Orchestra; Nicholas Braithwaite. Original 1993 Lyrita release.
