Dutton is out of the chamber music business.   These will be real collector's items in ten years.

My most sincere gratitude to everyone who help realize this!  A fine symphony I though I'd never hear.
Clive, especially you.  Thank you!

Is there a kind soul out there who could possibly supply downloads of any or all of the following performances:

Gold Coast Customs (with either Edith Sitwell or Lambert as reciter); The Riverrun; and The Shadow of Cain (with Dylan Thomas or Edith Sitwell as speaker). Especially the one with Dylan Thomas.
 Thank you very much.

The composer tells me "Kenneth Woods will be conducting my 9th Symphony with his English Symphony Orchestra, possibly at the Cheltenham Festival, either next year or 2018, I'm not sure yet."

I hope some kind soul will make this available on the forum.  Exciting news!
10  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Individual composers / Einojuhani Rautavaara 1928-2016 on: July 28, 2016, 11:42:10 am
The great Finnish composer passed away this morning.  Huge loss and our last living link to Sibelius.

The Veale Symphony No.2 is an amazing work!  Beautifully written, clear themes, honest.  Leaves poor Gardner in the shade.
12  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / General musical discussion / Clarification of Moeran's 2nd Symphony on: July 16, 2016, 02:17:44 pm
I had written earlier that a well-known "authority" had told me that the Symphony No. 2 was 7/8 Moeran.
I contacted the impeccable source to clarify. I was mistaken somewhat.  The first three movements are 7/8 Moeran. Orchestral markings, themes and development but no tempo indications.
The finale was more problematic as all Martin Yates had to work with were several scribblings on the back of several pages. There was one new theme and not much else. Yates took what he had and tried to ascertain where Moeran
may have gone with it.
We can never know, but we do know Moeran was aiming for a one-movement symphony a la Sibelius' 7th. So, in my opinion Yates brilliantly wrapped all of the previous themes together and a rousing conclusion. We have several witnesses who saw the completed score and was played on the piano by Moeran. His confidence was such that he never could bring himself to actually finish and release it. So, what we have is a brilliant, beautifully written symphony mostly by Moeran with some help from Martin Yates.
As to the 2nd String quartet, the first movement was revised heavily from a much earlier un-published quartet. The second movement was composed anew in late 1949 and early 1950. In fact, up until March 1950 Moeran was working successfully on finishing the symphony and the quartet (which he called "tinkering"). At that point he stopped writing to Peers Coetmore and disappeared from view for long stretches.  This is when the symphony short score was scattered and the finale totally lost. His brother never could find his briefcase.
So, we are very fortunate to have what we have.

Not here in the former colonies.  :P

The original version of the Walton will be coupled with the Bliss Violin Concerto BTW.
15  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Clifford on Dutton on: July 06, 2016, 08:24:44 pm
Please don't hold me to it but, Clifford should be released around the "end of summer" with three other discs including the original version of Walton's Violin Concerto and a Chaminade disc. The Steinberg recording sessions were very successfully completed (Steinberg is not my cup of tea).
