Summary: This is the first study of a neglected genre and has four aims: firstly, to show the development of symphonic composition in Australia from Federation to 1960; secondly to highlight the achievement of the main composers who wrote symphonies; thirdly, to advocate the restoration and revival of this repertory; and, lastly, to take a step towards a recasting of the narrative of Australian concert music from Federation to the present. In particular, symphonies by Marshall-Hall, Hart, Bainton, Hughes, Le Gallienne and Morgan emerge as works of particular significance.
