1  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: EMI Green Series? on: August 10, 2017, 05:05:36 am
That's it! And some of the ones I was remembering are there.

Ah, nostalgia!

Thanks

Not sure where to put this one...

I've been wallowing in nostalgia recently and was thinking about some recordings I heard back in the 80s as a teenager first listening to classical music.

I remembered that there were EMI recordings (LPs, cassettes and early CDs) which had a green livery instead of the usual red EMI colour scheme. Does anyone know whether they were a Green Series, or if they had a particular name? And what was the rationale for their colour scheme? I remember some C20 English works on one, Lutosławski on another and Sibelius on a third, so were they C20 works as opposed to C19?

If I had a name for the series it might help to search for titles if I wanted to reacquaint myself with any of them.

The $7 one doesn't ship to Australia, you have to get up into the v expensive copies before you find an international shipper, hence my request.

I listened to the Brabbins 1920 London Symphony today on Radio 3. I think it's an excellent performance and when it comes out on CD will be a classic I'm sure.

Does anyone have a decent recording of Randall Thompson's Symphony No.3 they could upload? I haven't heard a version that wasn't encumbered by crackling, and CD versions seem to be unavailable.

Can you just remind me how the 1920 version differs from the 1913 version and the later (1930s? version).

I quite like the Fricker Symphony No.1, which sounds like an early Robert Simpson symphony... but after that they get less interesting IMO.

As is the practice I will remove my link to a recording of the BBC premiere I posted last year.

Salamanov is one composer who needs modern recordings of his symphonies. Thankfully his string quartets have a good modern performance in the catalogue.
11  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Hughes,Robert - Symphony in Three Movements on: June 20, 2017, 09:36:45 am
The work is available in an older recording on Youtube, but this older recording is, ironically, the revised version of the Symphony in four movements.

In other words the three movement version is the first version (1951 v 1971?)

Btw, does anyone know if Butterworth's 7th symphony has been performed?

Bacri's symphonies downloaded fine just now. Don't know what the problem was before.

Thanks

Re the links to Nicolas Bacri's Symphonies 1 & 5

I can't get the download. If I click on it it takes me to the website main page, if I copy and paste the whole url the website tells me the link is invalid.
