This is a very welcome release indeed - http://www.musicweb-international.com/classrev/2012/Nov12/Gardner_Christmas_EMRCD009.htm




EM RECORDS EMR CD009


Gardner is still sadly under-represented in the current catalogue (it would be particularly good to hear his full-scale opera The Moon and Sixpence, premiered at Sadler's Wells in 1957) and I would urge members to listen to this excellent Naxos disc which showcases his considerable achievements -

A piece is worth your attention, and is itself for you praiseworthy, if it makes you feel you have not wasted your time over it. (SG, 1922)

Many thanks for the notification, John Smiley! Gardner has been a composer whom I have always wanted to hear more of-I greatly enjoyed the Naxos disc Smiley. And just in time for the holidays, too! I'm still hoping for a recording of Gardner's large scale Symphony no. 2...
