Bump for this thread. Currently enjoying this CD which features two of the strongest Harris symphonies:


I am going to have to return to this disk as well. Thanks for the heads up.

My pleasure and thanks for responding.
Coincidentally today I received a CD featuring Harris's Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra (1946) which I greatly enjoyed and found it fully characteristic. The opening movement reminded me of John Foulds's 'Dynamic Triptych'.
"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

'The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good' (Stanley Kubrick).
