George Lloyd: Symphony No 10 "November Journeys"    Trax cd

I've had this cd on repeat for a while now and I think the music is all very enjoyable. I don't know why anyone wouln't enjoy Lloyd's Tenth? Maybe,like me you think you don't like brass music that much! Although I love the Conifer cd 'Arnold on Brass'  (one of the best Arnold cd's,imo) and I like his Symphony for brass. Oh,and I like Holst's Suite's for brass. Maybe you feel Lloyd's palette is somewhat limited,or constrained,by the use of brass? Or,it's an image of that chap trudging oop t' hill in that Hoovis ad?! But fear not,this is very nice! I think I prefer it to his Eleventh,to be honest?!! Not that I don't like it,but for all it's,undoubtedly colourful & spectacular orchestration,it just seems to lack the great tunes & identifiable themes that endear me to his earlier efforts in the genre!
