Arthur Benjamin - Symphony 1

Benjamin (1893-1960) was an Australian composer, who is mainly remembered for a charming piece of light music (Jamaican rumba). His serious music includes a number of operas, chamber music, several concertos, and a single impressive symphony (from 1945), which I selected for today's post.
