Title: Afternoon on 3 British music
Post by: Albion on December 05, 2012, 08:34:54 am
Some interesting repertoire coming up on Afternoon on 3:

Thursday 6th December - Ivor Gurney: A Gloucestershire Rhapsody (1919-21)
Friday 7th December - Daniel Jones: Five Pieces for Orchestra (1939)
Tuesday 11th December - John Maxwell Geddes: Ombre (1984)


Gurney's A Gloucestershire Rhapsody was premiered as recently as 2010 in Cheltenham (under Martyn Brabbins) and this is the work's first broadcast, as is the Daniel Jones.

I will record these three items for the archive.

Oh yes please! Thanks yet again, John. I really look forward to the Gurney: after hearing his 'War Elegy' on that wonderful Dutton CD, I would like to hear more of his orchestral music. Not that I imagine there is a great deal more.

Thank you for offering to record these for the archive, John :). I can't wait to hear these three pieces, especially the Gurney (I, too, was greatly moved my his War Elegy) :)!
