The Curse of the Gothic SymphonyDVD - 2011
Said to be cursed, for over 80 years the immense 'Gothic Symphony', composed by British composer Havergal Brian, has remained unperformed in its entirety. At over two hours long and requiring two orchestras, four brass bands and five full choirs singing 42 parts, this is perhaps not surprising. Filmed over five years, this documentary follows the journey of a brave and committed group of Brisbane enthusiasts who attempt to break the curse and stage this epic event.
