This incredible, marvellous collection of-by and large-excellent off-air recordings just gets better and better Smiley Smiley

James Stuart has now added

Humphrey Searle's Ballet Suite "Les Noctambules"(1956), Scherzi for small orchestra(1964) and Zodiac Variations for small orchestra(1970)
Christopher Steel's Symphony No.4(1968)
and
Malcolm Williamson's Symphony No.6 "Liturgy of Homage"(1982)...which I have been hoping to hear for a very very long time Smiley

There are innumerable other recordings of music by Fricker, McCabe, Searle etc which we already have in our British Music Archive but this is a real treasure trove Smiley

Never expected to hear so many of Fricker's symphonies again - the last one I heard was the 5th, in the RFH in 1976???!!! - so really looking forward to digging into this treasure trove!

We are now in the quite extraordinary situation of having four different performances of Fricker's 1st Symphony, three of Fricker's 3rd and two of Fricker's 5th Grin

Never did I think to see the day....... Smiley Smiley

Holy Toledo..what rarities..
Did I even see this? 

Malcolm Arnold - Organ Concerto, Op. 47 (1954).
Conducted by John Avison, CBC Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Hugh McClean, organist.

It may be a bummer, but certainlt worth a listen anyway

I'm currently converting a large number of these flash videos into mp3s - the orchestral and symphonic concert works, that is. Hopefully this evening I'll be able to upload them into the British music archive (initially within a separate 'YouTube' folder).

Excellent, John Smiley Smiley

I have just downloaded-

Sir Richard Rodney Bennett's Music for Strings; and Reflections on a Theme of William Walton
Michael Berkeley's "Romance of the Rose"; and "Uprising"
Gerard Victory's Symphony No.2 "Il Ricosso"
Graham Whettam's Symphony No.1( Smiley Smiley); Sinfonia Concertante; and Introduction and Scherzo Impetuoso
Malcolm Williamson's "Perisynthion"; "With Proud Thanksgiving"; and the huge "Josip Broz Tito-a Tribute"
Ian Whyte's "Edinburgh" (a more modern version than mine)
and the three later Humphrey Searle Symphonies


Oh...Treasures indeed Smiley Smiley

I'm particularly pleased to be able to hear some real Malcolm Arnold rarities - the Toy Symphony, Op.62 (1957), the Fantasy for Audience & Orchestra, Op.106 (1970) and the Divertimento for Wind Octet, Op.137 (1988). All of these are now transferred to mp3 in the British Music 'YouTube' folder.

Fantastic channel to be sure! It's also interesting to hear some of the old announcers from the Third Programme as was - delightful to hear Anthony Hopkins introducing Fricker's 1st.
