.....and absolutely first-class, detailed and exceptionally informative notes they were - as I am sure yours will be too, Gareth!

Which compositions are recorded for this 3rd cpo CD?

"It will contain: Symphony No. 3 "Ships"; Orchestral Variations on "The Girl I Left Behind Me" and the tone poem "The Birds of Rhiannon". The orchestra is the Deutsche Radiophilharmonie Saarbrücken/Kaiserlautern under Howard Griffiths" (from the first post on this thread Smiley)

Given that CPO has given in the past as a reason for delays in issuing recordings made for them the non-delivery of the cd booklet notes it is good to know that this will not apply now Smiley

Dvorak is one of these composers I just can't get. I don't like all the fake drama in his work.

Well for me it is most Mozart, middle and late Rachmaninov and Delius Sad We probably all have our blind spots.

....and such a delightful, beautiful and upliftingly festive work it is!! I spend so long in the byways of the 20th century that I tend to forget the 19th century genius of the real greats: Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak. In fact it occurs to me to wonder whether Dvorak was the last "happy composer" before all the angst of the 20th century took over??

I once (long ago) read a quote which I now cannot recall exactly (nor can I recall the source) but went something to the effect that while so many 19th century composers were struggling with their romantic composerly angst Dvorak never lost sight of the value of a good jug of ale and a well cooked roast of beef.  That quote has always struck me as a pretty good guide to the emotional world of much of Dvorak's music.

Brian

I thoroughly agree Smiley

Forgive my astonishment and lack of enthusiasm.I

Surely no performance of Dvorak's marvellous TE DEUM could engender 'lack of enthusiasm'?   Roll Eyes  It leaves even confirmed atheists like myself quite enthused Smiley Although I don't know Sargeant's recording.  Keeps the tympanists busy!

I must admit to not having listened to the Dvorak Te Deum in years. In fact I could not even remember which cd  in my collection contains the piece....but I have now found it in a performance conducted by Robert Shaw. Will listen to it later this evening.

My lack of enthusiasm is not a reflection on the work but on Lyrita (of all companies) issuing a recording from 1954 conducted by Sargent. Of course it may be a great performance and, in that case, will give pleasure to many! So...ignore my sour response!

If I recall correctly the only symphony which is not an adaptation of a string quartet is the first which I (probably) have downloaded on my hard drive  Grin

.....which I now find I do definitely have on my hard drive Smiley

I did actually mean "commercially recorded" but your point is well made Grin I am currently in London so I can't check my own catalogue of downloads.
