Aaagh, it's the other way round, the Symphony no.2 is quite bland, No.1, much better!

Whoops, Willan.

The YouTube performance isn't a bad one, just poor quality. A very old radio recording.

Hi Latvian

Looking forward to downloading the Wilan. His first symphony is quite bland, but the second (which I have heard on a poor YouTube recording) is a cracker,  full of energy!

Could also be a problem of 'literary German' versus real German, I understand that an increasingly small and ageing population of academics insist on writing in a style of German which is incomprehensible to most German speakers, even well-educated ones. And presumably this translator thinks she needs to create an equivalent English!

Frequently I come across absurdities in CD liner notes, back in the 1980s I bought a cassette of Bruckner's First Symphony where the note writer opined that the slow movement was a "conflict between nature and God" [sic].

What I want in accompanying notes is a blow-by-blow account of the music, especially for C20 music, so I can follow it on first listening and get an idea of the structure of the work.

That might be by Clement Woodcock, who lived in the C16 (died c 1590).

I'vejust been listening to some concertos for recorder, flute and oboe by the early C18 English composer Robert Woodcock. They are delightful. There is some controversy as to whether they weren't written by Jean Baptiste Loeillet instead, but whoever wrote them they are delightful.
But, the usual story, you can buy umpteen recordings of Vivaldi concertos, but there is no complete recording of the set of 12 concertos, just eight of nine of them scattered over almost as many disks.
Just posting here in the hope someone can tell me I'm wrong and there is a complete recording.

The way I listen to these is right-click and "copy video URL", then paste it into another window of the browser and listen.

I see that the August releases from Naxos include new recordings of Brahms' Symphonies 3 & 4  Huh

I wonder why we need new recordings of these two works?

Ok done (John Joubert Piano Concerto, that is).

Apparently it is the companion piece on the forthcoming Joubert disk with the Symphony No.3, so this is a foretaste only and will be taken down as soon as the CD appears.
10  Little-known music of all eras / Downloads discussion / Re: British and Irish Music on: June 21, 2018, 10:19:37 pm
Sorry I didn't around to recording the Joubert Piano Concerto, will get around to it over the weekend. Cry
11  Little-known music of all eras / Downloads discussion / Re: British and Irish Music on: June 20, 2018, 10:15:14 pm
There's still time to record it, I'll do it tonight.

 Grin

ps I like the Joubert S3, vey atmospheric, Yorkshire Pastoral, ie a bit grim.
12  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: David Diamond Symphony No.6 from Naxos on: June 01, 2018, 10:41:42 pm
I've had to listen to music through headphones my entire life!

It was ok tonight, I recorded it, wil post it tomorrow morning after I have checked it.

The outro mentioned that this performance was due to appear on cd, so of course I'll take it down once the cd is issued. I wonder who is issuing it and what the other work(s) will be.

Hey everyone
I tried to record the symphony tonight, but it seemed to me that the recording was full of little glitches that would make it very irritating to listen to. I don't think it's crappy Internet this end, sounds more like a faulty master tape... Can someone else listen and see if they hear this too?
Otherwise I'll try tomorrow night.
