Cd 1. Prompted by my recent playing of The Beggars Opera,I decided to listen to another,distinctly,English opera! I noticed two copies of this set today for just over a fiver! One of them was described as "Like New"! I decided to take a punt on it! The other one is still on sale!

Re: New Bliss cd! According to someone on another forum (not that one!) according who totted up the timings on the BBc Radio Classics cd and the new Dutton;the new recording of the ballet amounts to 7 minutes more music. Some of this could relate to differences in tempi?



It certainly gives a new meaning to swing! Shocked Grin

All good stuff. Not heard the Violin Concerto for years, very glad to encounter it again! The Lady of Shalott is sheer magic.

If you scroll down the Toccata Pipeline,on their website,Brian's opera The Cenci is listed as a future release. Apparently,this is of a 1997 concert performance. This just leaves Turandot, prinzessin von China and Agamemnon.

Great news, thanks! Here is further information about the opera - http://www.havergalbrian.org/works/the-cenci.php

For Agamemnon see

Cd 2 of this 4 cd survey of her earlier recordings from 1944 to 1950. A 48 page booklet packed with photographs (and more bra support! Grin)  as usual with these Proper sets. They released an earlier fat box set,that has some recordings that aren't on this one & predictable overlap,so if you like Peggy Lee you end up buying both sets! Roll Eyes

Don't  forget La Belle Dame sans Merci which Cameo Classics recorded with the Malta Philharmonic under Michael Laus, now reissued on Lyrita.

Yes, another fine work from Mackenzie's most productive period, the 1880s, when he wrote some of his best music including the rhapsody Burns (1880), the opera Colomba (1883), the oratorio The Rose of Sharon (1884), the Violin Concerto (1885), the overture Twelfth Night (1888) and the cantata The Dream of Jubal (1889).

It would be nice to hear his Cricket on the Hearth opera one day!

Indeed. The overture (recorded by Hyperion) is really splendid, and the vocal score reveals an opera that fully deserves professional revival. It benefits from an expert adaptation of Dickens by Julian Sturgis who also provided the libretti for Sullivan's Ivanhoe (1890-91) and Stanford's Much Ado About Nothing (1900-01).

At long last the final gap in Arnold's concerto output is now filled by this release from Toccata Classics: Grand Concerto Gastronomique for Eater, Waiter, Food and Large Orchestra, Op. 76 (1961) -
