I borrowed this CD from the Public Library based on memories of an earlier version of the Symphony No. 1 on vinyl. Now it is a must own item for my personal collection.
The inclusion of "Crown Imperial" on this CD is a wonderful bonus. The first hearing at full volume by my home audience of Crown Imperial, obtained the simple but apt response of "Wow!". There is a cheerful and stately grandiosity there leading to a resounding and truly unforgetable climax.
The Symphony No. 1 sounds modern today, some 70 odd years after its creation. The entire work will make a profound impression on the attentive listener. The relentless scherzo movement followed by melancholy in the mood of November heard in the adagio cannot fail to resonate. The orchestra plays flawlessly throughout.

Maestro Andre Previn is with no doubt the best Walton interpreter of all times, and specially the owner of this symphony.
After listening a kind of miracle as was his first effort with the LSO (RCA) that is the unbeatable reference for this work,
this newer version could be disappointing for some. Good as it is, it lacks the power and drama of the former recording.
If you want to know the real Previn's mastery in this work, just go for the RCA version with the London Symphony Orchestra.

The 1st symphony of Sir William Walton written in 1935 (a great year for music) is a powerhouse of different emotions and textures. This Telarc performance by Andre Previn and the Royal Philharmonic do a fine job of sending the message, but I would have prefered to find Previn's sixties recording with the London Symphony, roughly the difference between pink and bright red! The additional pieces on the Telarc are two coronation marches-Crown Imperial and Orb and Scepter, which make up for the difference.

01-10-14 The CD packaging in this Previn Walton music is the same as a cover with green trees in a watercolor sort of image, but, as far as I can tell, is to the second the identical performances of these 3 works, the Symphony #1, "Crown Imperial," and the "Orb and Sceptre" march, so I will review this CD as though it were the forest image disk.
When I first heard this 1st Symphony, back a year ago or so, I thought "Why, someone has found an unknown Sibelius work and placed it in this Telarc disk by mistake. No mistake and no Sibelius. This is Walton, a composer of whom I know very little, BUT one whom I am now studying with excitement. A sensational work, this 1931-35 work, full of energy, power sweep and wonderful melodies. Of the total discography by Previn and the Royal Phil. and there are plenty, this is one of their finest collaborations. Clean, crisp and biting, as well as smooth, serene and tuneful, these folks work together so nicely, they even rival the maestro's performances with Vienna, and THAT is saying a lot, from me. The usual great sound from Telarc is woven into the very fabric of this release, a riveting, stunning performance of the composer's trail blazing b-minor symphonic debut. Yet another Previn gem the Symphony runs a sensational 45minutes flat, and takes us on a heroic and epic journey into the "modern" symphonic world that was the composer. The 1st movement marking, Allegro Assai, is more just allegro as Previn presses no one in the orchestra. Rather he permits every tiny detail to emerge from the RPO's vast arsenal of fire power, especially in the 1st movement's 14:15 duration, and it is followed by a jaunty, jagged and boisterous scherzo "Presto, con malizia" which means, Fast and with malice".
