Dedicated to the memory of Lady Evelyn Barbirolli, widow of Sir John Barbirolli, a noted oboist, and Honorary Fellow of Trinity College of Music, this disc brings together three of Alan Hovhaness’s most fascinating scores.

His Symphony No. 7 ‘Nanga Parvat’ depicts the sublime topography and tiger-like ferocity of that majestic Kashmiri mountain.

Hovhaness was inspired, in his own words, by the ‘wild fierceness of volcanic earthquakes and avalanche-shaken mountains’ when composing his Symphony No. 14 ‘Ararat’, while the bells of the thousand and one cathedrals of the ruined Armenian city Ani resound in the Symphony No. 23.
