CRITIC REVIEW:

“Bryden Thomson, a Scottish conductor who specialized in the music of British composers, was best known in the United States through his many recordings on the Chandos label. He revived the works of Arnold Bax, and was considered a communicative conductor of music by Vaughan Williams, Elgar and Hamilton Harty. His concert repertory, however, ranged more broadly. He was the principal conductor of the Scottish National Orchestra from 1988 until last summer. He was also a principal conductor of the BBC Northern Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra. He was the artistic director of the Ulster Orchestra, in Belfast, Northern Ireland, from 1977 to 1985.”
