Replying to Holger, I think there was some thought of adding a recording of the Symphony No.5 and some other orchestral music but this has been put on ice- presumably the company would need finance (this cd has almost certainly had substantial private support). Rory's dad said to me recently: "How many people will buy the cd? You and me?".
Well...I hope a few more do so!!

I have a bunch I got this week from Amazon and HD Direct

Moyzes symphony series on Naxos,
Florence Price Sym 1&4  on Naxos; 

I got the Lyatoshynsky Sym no 3 (Chandos) .. so I'll give it a listen 

Armas Jarnefelt Song of the Scarlet Flower on Ondine, 
Silvestrov's Touching the Memory on Brillant label, 
Jarnefelt: Orchestral Works on BIS,

and finally Michael Haydn Sym 11,12,15,16 on CPO

one thing that makes me mad, is that I'll order a brand new CD still in the wrapping, and the front is either cracked or the hinge is broken....even before I can open the celephane wrap....Sad

I derive a real buzz from opening a box of newly delivered cds Grin

Today's consignment contains:

Sir Michael Tippett's Symphony in B flat and Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4 from Hyperion (I don't happen to like the Third and Fourth Symphonies but I wanted to hear the early symphony again)
Ralph Vaughan Williams assorted works from Dutton including Martin Yates's orchestration of "The Blue Bird" and David Matthews's Norfolk March.
Knudage Riisager's Violin Concerto (and the Etudes) from Dacapo.
and a rather odd combination cd from Orfeo with Lovro von Matacic conducting Haydn's Symphony No.103, Schubert's Unfinished (which Orfeo bill as No.7 rather than No.Cool and Gottfried von Einem's Bruckner Dialog. It is perhaps no great surprise that I bought ths disc for the von Einem Grin

Arnold on Brass (Conifer).I'm not usually that mad about Brass band music;but this one is great!! Although,the last track (The Padstow Lifeboat) began skipping last night! Sad Some light scratches visible. After a clean;I'm hoping it will work! The way the band get all the sonorities,humour and atmosphere of Arnold's music is quite brilliant and fun! Arnold conducts the last track,with the "insistent offkey foghorn (based on the real one at Trevose in Cornwall" (Quote from Gramophone review,which describes it as a stunning aural experience"!) I love the jolly artwork too! Perhaps I should add some more Brass Band music to my collection?! Oh,and I'll have to hear his Symphony for Brass Instruments,won't I?

And.......YES,it played all the way,through! Smiley Some of the playing is quite thrilling! I love the whistling on one of the tracks! Superb! I wish my mother was still alive to hear this one. She liked Arnold. I remember my parents sitting down to watch a program about him,on BBC2,back in the eighties (or nineties?) expecting some jolly looking man;and being confronted,by,a close up,of this miserable,embittered face,wailing about the disdain of the musical establishment towards his achievement! Of course,my mother knew his music from the jollier,more upbeat works.

Holbrooke next!! Smiley

Dear cilgwyn
