Dear shamus,

thanks for the great recording of MacMillan's violin concerto. At first hearing - I am just listening to it -
it really sounds gorgeous! I would like to have it commercially recorded on SACD.

Many thanks to Elroel for sending me his recording of David Matthews' Symphony No.7 (2008-09): this is the premiere performance conducted in Manchester by Gianandrea Noseda in April 2010.

The audio file and broadcast information are now in the archive.

Thanks to Jim for the upload of the premiere performance of Hugh Wood's Symphony.

The conductor was indeed Gennadi Rozhdestvensky although the year was 1983(23 July) rather than 1982 Smiley

I must confess that although I can respect Hugh Wood's music the general idiom I find somewhat taxing for my own particular tastes.

To clear up any confusion it was, in fact, 1982 - http://www.bbc.co.uk/proms/archive/search/1980s/1982/july-23/9429

Somebody-like ME-ought to contact Wood's publisher, Chester Novello, and tell them to stop publishing incorrect information about their composers on their website Embarrassed Embarrassed Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

And I too must confess that my present tastes are also for something a little less taxing! He is very good at his craft though.

I was looking for a cassette I had of the Neruda cycle directed by Odaline de la Martinez and managed to find the symphony on two cassettes. No Neruda cycle though. I was a fan of the poetry (love songs/song of despair) but didn't feel that Wood's Modernist idiom was capable of expressing their romantic nature (unlike Barber's 'The Lovers').

Thanks indeed!

The broadcast of Symphony No.1 is the premiere performance of the revised (2007) score, given at the Spires Centre, Belfast. I've added some other broadcast dates to the catalogue.

I've just uploaded three more works by Stanley Bate, in archival broadcast recordings. A fine composer, whose centenary is approaching. Albion, feel free to appropriate for your catalogue!

Latvian, thank you for these - they have been duly appropriated - Boult conducting Bate is something special, indeed.

Recordings of Bate's music are always welcome: his centenary (12th December 1911) passed last year, but perhaps there will be something else from Dutton soon (hopefully at least the Violin Concerto No.3) ...

The performance of Stanley Bate's Symphony No.3 conducted by Adrian Boult was a live broadcast from the Cheltenham Festival (12th July 1965).

Thank you for the correction! Somehow, his birthdate in my files was 1913.

You're welcome, everyone. I wish I had more of Bate's works to upload!
