When we heard the exciting news that Lyrita was commencing the release of the late Richard Itter's collection of recordings made from BBC broadcasts there was some speculation about possible treasures coming our way. The first two releases were of music by Matyas Seiber and of a collection of (relatively) well-known British concertos.

Now the second pair of releases is advertised Smiley

The complete Malcolm Lipkin symphonies Smiley Smiley

Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3 were generously made available in recordings made by members but now we shall have all three on cd, no doubt in excellent recordings (Itter was an expert at making off-air recordings), including Symphony No.1 "Sinfonia di Roma". Lipkin is one of the most unjustly neglected of British composers and it is wonderful that-at 83 this year-the composer will be able to receive this exposure at last. I am delighted for him Smiley

.....and the other new release is of Sir Arthur Bliss's Cantata "The Beatitudes" in the recording of the BBC Proms performance from 1964 conducted by the composer.

For lovers of neglected British Music this is fantastic news Grin

A very promising start to an exciting project! I have removed the copies of The Beatitudes and Lipkin's 2nd and 3rd symphonies from the broadcast archive and will remove further items if, as and when they are commercially released.

The two new Lyrita cds have just arrived Smiley

To have a cd in my hands with all three Lipkin cds is so exciting Grin

....and future prospects Huh Is it just possible that s substantial number of those British symphonies about which I have been chuntering on about for the last five years plus on this and other music forums are in the pipeline Huh If they were broadcast then the chances that Rchard Itter recorded them must be very high. The recording equipment he used was of exceptional quality. If they are therefore in his collection then very hopefully they will make it to cd..............at last!!

Can dreams come true Huh Smiley Smiley

I would be very surprised if we don't see more Fricker, Cooke, Jones, Hoddinott, Williams, Wordsworth, etc. from this source: reminiscent of the short-lived Carlton Classics label in the 1990s only with a more specifically British remit of broadcast material. Great!
