First violins, use a little more bow please! Don't mind the gurgling tuba in the background.

 Roll Eyes

Ah, wonderful! The Esther Williams Aquatic Symphony Orchestra in rehearsal...

I have added an MP3 to BIMA of

Frederic Cliffe (1857-1931)

Symphony No.1 in C minor, Op.1 (1889)
AOIDE SO/ Gerd Müller-Lorenz (31/10/2019)


A wonderful score and an excellent performance. The acoustic is preferable to the swimming-bath Sterling CD recording.

 Smiley

Thank you very much, John. I can't understand why anybody found the venue in which the Sterling CD was recorded was actually suitable for recording, or why the producer and engineer didn't try to tame the reverberation in some way. It's verging on the absurd. I shall look forward to hearing this version.

Obviously St Johannes Church in Malmo is one to avoid.

 Tongue

Oh, so that's where it was recorded. I do have the CD but with my bad back I couldn't be bothered to clamber over a piano and a television to retrieve it from the shelf!  Grin

You can call me a cynic if you like.  Wink

Well, the step-father of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor was a railway worker, so we're not really off track!

By the sainted fillet of St Margaret of Antioch...



...mayo or tartar optional.

Even in the best-regulated families (or on the best-moderated forums, it seems).  Cheesy

Go on, smile for the camera...



...say "Gruyère". Oh, just don't bother.

BAH!!!

 Grin When you see things like that it makes you wonder how come photography 'took off', doesn't it?

Indeed, it's family-friendly fun, fun, fun all round. Worra bloody miserable lot, eh? Couldn't raise a laugh if y'applied Ken Dodd's ticklin' stick (oo-er, missus).

Mere idling methinks.

Maybe someone should have broken out the nitrous oxide.  Wink


British and Irish Music?

Whoops!

Well, accidents will happen...



...and happen and happen.

 Shocked

Me too. I'll bring my blunderbuss! Smiley

I've got a pretty lethal pea-shooter...

 Cheesy

Like Byron, then, you are ''mad, bad and dangerous to know''!  Grin

Oh dear, a sorry mishap seems to have occurred...



...how, I cannot say. "Bridge, what bridge?"

Whoops!

If I see yet another integral collection of the Beethoven Symphonies I think I'll scream.

I'll happily kill.

Also just added:

Samuel Coleridge-Taylor

Ballade in A minor, Op.33 (1898)
Chineke! O/ Wayne Marshall (13/9/2015)


 Smiley

Thanks again, John. This recording was made at Chineke! Orchestra's debut performance at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre in London, since when they have gone from strength to strength. Long may they continue!

Yes, a brilliant orchestra doing interesting repertoire. The two don't happen to often coincide these days...

 Sad

No, they don't. If I see yet another integral collection of the Beethoven Symphonies I think I'll scream.

*It could have been worse?!!! Shocked




Ahh, how cute! Nothing delights the British heart more than a little lamb. A few green peas and a quantity of mint sauce...
