Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Lloyd's music is amongst the easiest to grasp of any contemporary composer's...Lloyd dares even to write tunes: the whistling ditty in the finale of Symphony No. 6 is irresistible...He has the knack of catching the ear and then lodging in the memory..."

ClassicalRemarks.com

George Lloyd writes: "Like my first three symphonies, the Sixth is comparatively short. The aim is to be concise, bright and lively with a minimum of development. After I had finished the score, I showed it to one or two people who condemned it as having no contemporary significance; I suppose they thought it was not serious enough for a symphony. Perhaps I was a little naive, but I believe it should once again be possible
Read more to say something true, that grew up out of the main traditions of Western music. It also had to have plenty of tunes, because I like music that sings and moves along in a flowing way...When the BBC first told me they would like me to write a piece for the Northern Brass Ensemble it so happened that about that time I was taking advantage of some cheap rail fares to visit various cathedrals I had never seen before. As I journeyed around the country I kept on thinking of sounds for the brass and these sounds became mixed up with the magnificent buildings I was seeing."
