Description: Film score and light music composer Farnon refused to have either of his youthful symphonies performed during his lifetime. Dutton got right after this project as soon as he was gone and the 1943 Second, premiered in Farnon's native Canada, is an engaging work of big, melodic ideas and considerable breadth and musculature, although, if you had no idea who had composed it, you might still think of film and light music at some places. Farnon used themes from his First Symphony in later "light" works and this is presumably why only the scherzo is recorded here. BBC Concert Orchestra; John Wilson.
