1  Little-known music of all eras / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Re: Parsival from Bavarian State Opera - SUNDAY 8th JULY on: July 09, 2018, 01:18:28 am
The great strength of the later Wagner is his harmonic invention. All the singing though is essentially formless and has to be a nuisance. Serious adult composers do not go for dressing up.

12  Little-known music of all eras / Works on the wireless / Arthur Benjamin - Symphony (1945) on: October 21, 2017, 12:21:06 pm
Arthur Benjamin was born in Sydney in 1893.

On my recording, copied from the announcement as I heard it, this work is listed as "Symphony 1, 1940". In Grove's Dictionary a work is described as "Symphony number 1" of 1944-5. But I find no reference anywhere to any "Symphony number 2". Indeed elsewhere on the page Grove states "His only symphony (1944–5) was performed at the 1948 Cheltenham Festival. It is dark and powerful, tragic in expression, and its mood seems in keeping with the time at which it was written."!4fZEFJBC!fNrlccgECRIhpB1yOPMcHgCLGQFnP PC64y7zyhI36LQ
