Thea Musgrave. I can recall a time when her music (including operas) seemed to make quite regular appearances in the Radio 3 schedules. What is the opinion of members here on her compositions?

I would have thought releasing the remaining Daniel Jones' symphonies would be a priority?!! Huh Sad I'm just being impatient though,aren't I? Living in Wales,in these post devolution times,I do find it very sad that such a fine cycle of symphonies has been neglected in such way. If only orchestral music by Welsh composers had the appeal of Rugby?!! Roll Eyes Grin  Although,looking at recordings of American composers over the last few decades,it seems we're pretty lucky in the UK,by comparison. Only recently,I was thinking how much Howard Hanson had done in respect to recording music by American composers. He seems to have been on a one man mission in some ways. Robert Whitney and the Louisville Orchestra series also spring to mind. If only there was as much missionary zeal over there today. Gerard Schwarz seems to have done quite a bit in more recent times,but seems to have been scuppered by poor sales?!!
Meanwhile,Ireland seems to have been funding some recordings of their composers on the RTE Lyric FM label.

I also noticed this. I quite like some of Mathias' music;and I have enjoyed his Piano concertos. I like the way he assimilates some popular influences. We need some recordings of "the other" Welsh composers though!!!
