The clarification regarding Artur Lemba is certainly welcome. As I understand it Toccata Classics has not released and has no plans to release any Lemba.

So.......if we can return (at least sort of Grin ) to the topic of this thread Smiley:

I see from Toccata's website that a further disc of music by David Hackbridge Johnson is in preparation. The Liepaja Symphony Orchestra under Paul Mann recorded Two Elegies for strings and harp and two tone poems "Ziggurats" and "Aspens" last year and the composer implies that the disc will also include a new symphony to be recorded this year.

Toccata has a good history of getting new recordings onto disc very quickly so it should not be long before the William Wordsworth Symphonies Nos. 4 and 8 are with us Smiley

,,,,,and (properly back on topic Grin) I am very much interested in the new disc of music by the splendid Arnold Rosner: Five Ko-ans for orchestra, "Unravelling Dances" and "The Parable of the Law" for baritone and orchestra. Rosner's rich modality and the grandeur of his music has an especial appeal to my ears. This is a disc I shall certainly purchase very soon. Has anyone already bought it?

The Arnold Rosner orchestral music vol 2 is excellent.  You'll love it.  Exciting music, modal, RVW references a plenty.  5 Koans reminds me somewhat of John Foulds 3 mantras.  The music is very rich, with a quasi religioso feel.  I'm a fan of toccata.  I like very many of their releases of people I've never heard of and this one doesn't disappoint.

The Steve Elcock also has considerable merits!

It does but I continue to find the Symphony No.3 quite a hard nut to crack and I do think that Martin Anderson's assertion that "it has to be some of the best orchestral music written by a British composer in the past half-century" rather hyperbolic. The Festive Overture however is delightful- Waltonian exuberance at its best

I agree with Colin here and was disappointed by the symphony. Robin Walker's music on a new Toccata release, which I have ordered, sounds more promising from the samples I have heard.
