George Lloyd: Symphony No 10 "November Journeys"    Trax cd

It was on sale for around a fiver so I thought why not buy it?!! Grin The tenth symphony doesn't appear to be a favourite with fans of the composer judging by some reviews I saw on Amazon. Knowing Lloyd's skilful & imaginative use of the brass section of the orchestra I thought it would be worth hearing & I liked the idea of November Journeys. Also,I (fairly) recently enjoyed Arnold's Symphony for brass & the Conifer cd of his music for brass is fantastic! So far,I'm enjoying what I'm hearing. I'm not familiar with the music of Wilfred Josephs. Another neglected composer! There is another recording of Lloyd's Symphony No 10,but it's more expensive.

Update! I am enjoying Symphony No 10! I'm not a big fan of brass bands,but I like George Lloyd's handling of the brass here. Maybe it's not one of Lloyd,greatest symphonies?  But,what not to like?!! (I like the cover art,too!)

PS: Anyone else here like this one?!! (It seems to be a bit of a Cinderella amongst his output!)
