in the premiere of Havergal Brian's gargantuan "Gothic Symphony", which had been completed 34 years earlier in 1927, but previous efforts to perform the work had stalled numerous times due to the colossal forces it requires. This premiere was held in the Central Hall, Westminster, and it was a precursor to the first fully professional performance, on 30 October 1966 at the Royal Albert Hall, under Sir Adrian Boult, which the composer attended. Although Havergal Brian did not attend Bryan Fairfax's earlier performance, to express his gratitude he wrote his Symphony No. 18 especially for the
Orchestra's forces and dedicated the work to Fairfax. Bryan Fairfax conducted the
Orchestra in the world premiere of the 18th Symphony in February 1962, at St. Pancras Town Hall. In June 1975 he directed the first professional performance, a BBC studio recording broadcast.
"The Quest to
" (German title, Wer weiss wo Polphonia liegt?), Farber’s first stage opera, was commissioned by Stuttgart Opera in 1989. Taking place in a post-atomic-war world, the opera is a legend folded within another: journeying through the history of western art music, Farber anthropomorphizes familiar melodic and harmonic features into evil creatures (like the hypnotizing “Evil Drone,” or Brothers Parallismus and Quintus who sing in parallel fifths) that try to prevent the protagonist, Prince Johann von Buxtehude, from getting to the Cave of Time. Upon defeating all the evil creatures, Prince Johann finds the time capsule and brings back art music. An ironic commentary on compositional teaching, The Quest to
finds its composer indulging in violating these pedagogical conventions. A second, Hebrew production, of The Quest to
took place in 1995 by the New Israel Opera in Tel Aviv.

Critic Sylviane Gold wrote in Newsday November 28, 2002, describing the pas de deux, “There hasn’t been anything to equal their dramatically charged achingly romantic duets since the last by Jerome Robbins and the audience erupted entirely justified bravos.” Ansanelli also originated in Wheeldon’s "Morphoses", "
" and "Variation Serieuse". She performed "Morphoses" for an educational seminar Works & Process at the Guggenheim Museum.
On Chord Harmonicas, there are 2 harmonicas hinged together capable together of playing 48 chords. They are 23 inches long, and each chord takes up 4 holes. The chord harmonica is used for a beat, or tricks. Jerry Murad's Harmonicat's 1947 "Peg O' My Heart" was played on a Chord. Hohner's main Chord is known as the Hohner 48, because it plays 48 chords. Hohner from the 1930s to the late 1960s also produced the
No. 8, which played 36 blow-only chords, in three rows. The concept failed and is often frowned upon by professional 48 chord players.
