Well, I thought that the Robin Walker CD was great and had a nice email exchange with him (as I did with the late Arnold Rosner). The Walker works reminded me of Jon Leifs the Icelandic composer. Totally agree with Colin on this one (as with much else besides). My new Toccata discovery is 'Sinfonia Pascale' (Symphony 3) by Philip Spratley. A powerful, tonal work, the Brucknerian ending of which had me on the edge of my seat. I have played it over and over again. Stylistically it also reminded me a bit of that fine Finnish composer Einar Englund.

I am so glad that you liked the Robin Walker, Jeffrey Smiley
