Title: Stanford in Afternoon on 3
Post by: Albion on June 23, 2014, 09:56:00 am
This week I will be adding two Stanford broadcasts to the archive, one of which has never been previously recorded:

Monday 23rd - Irish Rhapsody No.5, Op.147 (Ulster O/ Howard Shelley)

Thursday 26th - Verdun: Solemn March and Heroic Epilogue, Op.151 (Ulster O/ Howard Shelley)


Verdun is Stanford's orchestration of the 2nd and 3rd movements of his Organ Sonata No.2 (1917).

Thank you, John! I was actually listening to that Organ Sonata on Saturday: a fine piece. I have been listening to a lot of Stanford of late, in the wake of the two new releases. I adore the Fifth Rhapsody, and hope that broadcast might win him a few more fans: such a stirring piece.

It's a real Stanford year, isn't it?
