The first movement is now on YouTube and one can definitely hear the wind instruments in the opening tutti. I will listen to the whole movement later, but thought I should post now to set Jim's mind at rest.

Fleisher has score and parts which are given as: solo violin, flute, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns and strings.
The Kalmus edition of the concerto (c. 1940) is held by a number of libraries, including NYPL. The score can also be downloaded from IMSLP.

It is really marvellous news. I can hardly wait. Thank you so much for bringing these exciting news to our attention.

Very useful, John. Many thanks. There is some lovely music here.
5  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Ruth Gipps on Chandos on: April 21, 2020, 11:38:41 am
Ruth Gipps' piano concerto is a first rate piece. On my suggestion Angela Brownridge recorded it for Cameo Classics with the Malta Philharmonic under Michael Laus. It was coupled with the 1st piano concerto by Kenneth Leighton. That disk is now difficult to obtain, I believe.  But Nimbus took over the Cameo catalogue and may well reissue the recording. I hope so. The Somm disk, of course, has another and very welcome rarity - well, two in fact: the only extant piano concerto by Dora Bright and her Variations on an Original Theme for piano and orchestra. I can recommend both CDs.

Very helpful indeed. Many thanks.

I am really looking forward to it.
8  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Havergal Brian's "Faust" on: April 08, 2020, 09:38:28 pm
Wow! Never thought I'd get to hear that. Can't wait for more information.
9  Little-known music of all eras / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Re: Grace Williams on the BBC on: April 06, 2020, 05:14:03 pm
Yes, indeed. Many Thanks - and let us hope the Violin Concerto will be rescheduled for a later concert.
10  Little-known music of all eras / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Re: Grace Williams on the BBC on: April 06, 2020, 10:45:35 am
Thanks for the advice. I will try listening to the whole concert in order to hear Symphony No. 2. I do hope the violin concerto will be broadcast eventually.
11  Little-known music of all eras / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Re: Grace Williams on the BBC on: April 05, 2020, 10:48:31 pm
Well, this is very disappointing. Trying to listen on BBC Sounds and the Symphony No. 2 won't play, though everything else in that concert seems to be available - and I see no sign of the Violin Concerto on Friday 27th - just the Sea Sketches. Another triumph for the BBC.
12  Little-known music of all eras / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Re: Cipriani Potter Symphony No.1 on: April 05, 2020, 03:43:40 pm
Agreed. And the full scores of all of them are in the manuscript collection of the British Library (including parts for the E flat and one of the C minor ones). Typical of the BBC not to tell us which G minor symphony is being played - but then they are so ignorant at R3 they probably think he only wrote one symphony. They couldn't even get his name right - Cipriano on their website!
13  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Hyperion Romantic Piano Concertos series - next issue Rubbra and Bliss on: April 01, 2020, 07:51:37 am
Sibelius, Wagner, Verdi, Puccini, Smetana, Borodin, Mussorgsky, Elgar (the completion is IMHO certainly not worthy of inclusion), Bantock, Ethel Smyth, etc., etc.
14  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Hyperion Romantic Piano Concertos series - next issue Rubbra and Bliss on: March 29, 2020, 11:47:24 pm
What about them? This thread is about the RPC series.

Could we potentially add Stanley Bate's 3rd, 4th and 5th dating from the 1950s?

I'm not really sure they could be called truly "Romantic", but these terms are so subjective. In any case, Stanley Bate is a criminally neglected composer. I was impressed with the PC2 which Dutton recorded and would love to hear his others. I do hope someone will record them soon - and the other concertos, and the Symphony No. 2, and... and...

And then there is Stanley Wilson: 3 PCs - Mss all at RCM (to say nothing of the "Skye" Symphony, which one a Carnegie Trust award). But perhaps Wilson is for another thread.
