1  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: Léon Boëllmann: Symphony and Symphonic Variations on Fuga Libera on: June 03, 2021, 05:36:54 pm
I agree that £35 is an excellent price for the full score of the Symphony. No need to shell out any money on the Symphonic Variations, however, since the full score for that work can be downloaded from IMSLP.

Nothing yet, I fear. But will post as soon as I have any news.

Really good news. Well done, everybody.  They really do listen.

you well know "masterpiece" ain't in my vocab

I did say near masterpiece! It's an over used word, I agree.

Any news on Carl Rosa?

Not a peep, alas.

and then email CPO to ensure that this is just the beginning of their Potter traversal.

This instruction is important. They DO listen to customer feedback. Please drop CPO a line - for attention of Herr Burkhard Schmilgun (he is the Artists & Repertoire Manager).

The 6th symphony by Lachner is a first class work (much better in my opinion than the 5th - the so called Prize Symphony, which is too long for its material) - and it comes coupled with the early Bassoon Concertino which I shall be very interested to hear. Definitely on my "to buy" list.

In my opinion, the 2nd symphony of Furtwangler is a near masterpiece and recorded splendidly by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Barenboim on Teldec (Warner) in 2002. The others are frightfully dull. So this is not a recording I shall be buying.

Summer is a-comin' in I suppose

That reminded me of the parody in "1066 and all that": "Winter is a-comin' in, loudly sing Goddam!"

Yes indeed. Very nice of you.

But what the hell's in it?

Well, I have asked (sent an email yesterday). No reply yet.

I'm afraid I don't, John. I hope it has not been a casualty of the ignorance and Philistinism which characterised that institution in the 1960s.
11  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Individual composers / Re: Sir Frederic Cowen (1852-1935) on: May 17, 2021, 10:04:30 am
All of those things certainly, but, alas, not untypical of some of our UK libraries. I think, for example, of Liverpool Public Library who contrived to lose (or, more probably, threw out) their copy of Litolff's Concerto Symphonique No. 5 - the only one in the country!
12  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Individual composers / Re: Sir Arthur Sullivan (1842-1900) on: May 16, 2021, 08:51:11 pm
I agree - it is. In fact, I think Universal made a new set of parts (the old ones being in rather poor shape) when Cameo Classics was thinking of recording it. But that never came to pass.
13  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Individual composers / Re: Sir Frederic Cowen (1852-1935) on: May 16, 2021, 08:49:20 pm
Yes, indeed. Thank goodness. I just think it is very slack of the RAM to have lost their set.

BTW your O need never be H.

Very kind of you, John.

Bantock wrote an overture to Macbeth. Universal has a full score and parts, I think.
