The Curse of the Gothic Symphony
For over eighty years the immense Gothic Symphony remains unperformed in its entirety. At over two hours long and requiring two orchestras, four brass bands and five full choirs it is regarded as the Mt. Everest of classical music. Seemingly impossible to stage due to its complexity and massive scale the Gothic Symphony is the ultimate cult neglected work by a British composer. Since his death in 1972, Havergal Brian has moved from near total obscurity to recognition as one of twentieth century England's most significant composers.
In December 2010 over 500 performers came together under the baton of maestro John Curro to perform Havergal Brian’s monster of a symphony but can they overcome an eight year-old curse that has prevented the musical behemoth from seeing the light of day?
Documenting the triumphs and nail-biting set backs of the production, The Curse of the Gothic Symphony is an affectionate, humorous and gripping look at an attempt to realise a truly epic vision.
