Although we are still waiting (certainly in my case very eagerly) for the release of the Chandos disc containing the Symphony No.8, the orchestral "A Vision of the Sea" and "Toward Sunrise" it is great to be able to report that the Symphony No.9 has been recorded by the English Symphony Orchsstra under Kenneth Woods for Nimbus. The Symphony will be coupled with "two pieces for strings". I am not sure what these could be. The obvious candidates would be the unrecorded "Three Birds and a Farewell", op.118 and/or "A June Song", op.140a and/or "Two Pieces from the Seasons". However in whatever combination that would still make for a very short cd in timing: the symphony is 25 minutes long and the longest combination of the other works would still come to less than 50 minutes.

Most of David Matthews's major works have already been committed to disc (although I admit to having forgotten the more substantial Two Pieces for strings, op.70-22 minutes in length). The Double Concerto for Violin, Viola and strings, op. 122 (2013) although (like most of the composer's recent music not lengthy) would seem to be one deserving of a recording.
