Gunning's 2nd Symphony is being broadcast on BBC Radio 3 this afternoon, performed by BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Kenneth Woods.
This is the only early Gunning Symphony  not commercially recorded - is there a chance that anyone could record it and make it available here, please?
Or, might this performance be a prelude to a commercial recording anyway?

This and the Korngold seem to be studio recordings for commercial release later.

Sorry to say that I've bought three CDs of his symphonies, all of which I found entirely unmemorable. The CD cover art was better than the music as far as I was concerned. Others clearly enjoy it more than I do.

Just in case you hadn't noticed- a recording of the broadcast of the Gunning Symphony No.2 has been posted in the Downloads section.

On Kenneth Woods website, his blog/diary has the entry:

4-6 April - Ken records three new symphonies by Christopher Gunning for Signum Records with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales

So two more as well as the second - has Christopher G now added Symphonies 8 & 9 to his canon?

He's passed 11 symphonies.

I believe that the three being recorded for release by Signum are 2, 10 and 11.

The Symphony No. 2 posted was excellent.  I am happy to purchase this and further releases from Gunning, it is very much worthy of being heard.

This announced from Signum for December release:

It is Symphonies 2, 10 and 12 though I think others may follow.
