1  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Lyrita futures on: July 14, 2017, 05:10:22 pm
I endorse the enthusiasm expressed here for Fricker's symphonies. They are marvellous pieces and I am thrilled that Lyrita are going to issue all four of them.

It was similar with the recently released CPO recording of Raff's String Quartets Nos. 2,3,4 & 8, by the Mannheimer Streichquartett. Nos. 4 & 8 were recorded in 2006; nos. 2 & 3 in 2007!

Indeed! As regards Chandos the glory days are well and truly over. Sic transit gloria mundi.

Oh, and I agree re. The Perfect Fool. There's some really lovely music in it.

Yes. There are lots of Itter recordings I should like to see sooner: e.g. Holbrooke's "The Bells" and the extracts from the Cauldron Trilogy that were broadcast in "Fairest Isle" year (1995); the Arthur Butterworth symphonies, John Tavener's "Ultimos Ritos". One could go on, but...

Quite delightful. Thank you very much.

I know that some of Holbrooke's symphonies (and some other compositions) have gone missing. Hopefully,his Fifth symphony is not one of them?!!

The score and parts of the 5th Symphony have survived and are held by Mrs Jean Holbrooke.

I do know how to contact the Holbrooke family, Tobias, and if you will contact me on: gareth41@talktalk.net I will give you Mrs Jean Holbrooke's address. Sounds as if she ought to be getting royalties from the sale of those scores.

What we really need is a modern recording of the wonderful Piano Concerto in G which has never been re-recorded since the ancient Denis Matthews version.

I very much second this. The Piano Concerto is one of Rubbra's finest works IMHO.

Quite. Dundonnell was not criticising El-Khoury's music - merely asking how so much of it came to be recorded. Not everyone knows that a lot of Naxos CDs are self-funded. Don't be so prickly!

They know us Holbrookeians just can't wait!! Grin Let's hope this bodes well for a Volume 4!
Well, Vol. 3 has been recorded - we know that: Symphony No. 3 "Ships"; Variations on "The Girl I Left Behind Me"; Birds of Rhiannon. Hope it is released soon. Nothing positive on Vol. 4 yet (if there is to be one) - but there is talk about a faint possibility of "Queen Mab" and "The Bells". I shall, of course, keep everyone abreast of developments (as far as I am permitted to do so).

I'm so pleased. I thought you might be.

What has happened to Dutton? All has gone very quiet.
15  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Gliere 25 Preludes on: April 16, 2017, 03:50:46 pm
These are lovely pieces. Nice to see them getting an airing again.
