I have just been privileged to hear the first edits of CPO's third Holbrooke CD and can report that the playing and conducting are superb. Howard Griffiths really understands Holbrooke's music. There is a delicacy and lucidity about the performances which is exactly what is needed. I hope the disk will be released hot on the heels of the second one.

Splendid news, thanks Gareth! So at least two further all-Holbrooke cds to look forward to...

One of my favourite Holbrooke cds. I particularly like the selection of music on this one;particularly the Dylan Prelude......but then again,everything on it. The playing is a little ragged,but imho displays a certain enthusiasm which lifts it above the flak it generally receives from listeners. Fair play,the Plovdiv (Louis Glass,Danacord) they are not! That said,I would obviously love to hear what a really top notch team,and label,could do with this music;perhaps coupled with The Wild Fowl;a work which Albion has mentioned more than once,and I hope I will one day get to hear. Not wishing to jump the gun;but enough material there for a possible Cpo Vol 4?!! Grin I can't wait to hear Holbrooke's brass blaze out in all it's glory. Remember that Marco Polo cd of Bantock's Hebridean Symphony? When the Hyperion recording came out the brass section came as quite a shock,after the muffled raspberries that passed for horns in the MP recording!

I was happy to see your observation confirmed by an apparently indepently conducted observation of the same joyful fact.  Wink

Speaking as probably the principal "moaner" on this forum in relation to CPO  Grin I welcome the forthcoming release.

I could of course bemoan the fact that although the release is due on 19 September it will not become available from British retailers until November. Those who order the cd directly from CPO will no doubt be able to get it more quickly.

I could further complain that on the linked website it says "At Last: Holbrooke's "The Raven" when in fact this particular work was recorded by Marco Polo in January 1992 with what is now the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Adrian Leaper (although the other two works on the new CPO release have not previously been recorded for cd).

However..........these are minor quibbles from "Grumpy of Perth, Scotland" and should not detract from the overall delight  Grin Smiley

With Symphony No.3 "Ships" having already been recorded by CPO what could we ask for next Huh

Well....there are works which include a chorus (that makes them more expensive) and there are works which require more than one soloist-

Double Concerto for Clarinet and Bassoon "Tamerlane" , op.119 (1934-39)
Quadruple Concerto for Flute, Clarinet, Cor Anglais and Bassoon, op.133 (1947)


So....what about

"The Masque of the Red Death"  Poem No 8, op.65 (1904-13)
Fantasie "The Wild Fowl", op. 56b (1918)
Piano Concerto No.2 "L'Orient", op. 100 (1920-28)


......come on, there is always more to do. Some of us are never satisfied Grin Grin

I hope to interest CPO, or another record company in all these works eventually + a CD of Josef's light music (of which there is plenty).
[Incidentally, Josef calls for concertinas (number unlimited!) in "Dylan", but I don't think these are used in the Wild Fowl Fantaisie, though it does require 5 saxophones.]
