Goldmark: Rustic Wedding Symphony   (+ Handel: The Faithful Shepherd)   RPO/ Beecham      Sony


Lovely,jubbly! :) A classic account in glorious mono (albeit not the finest of the period,but the ear's soon adjust!) The cd begin's with one of Beecham's Handel confections!

Shocking confession! ! I'd rather listen to one of Beecham's recording's of Handel arrangement's than some of those HIP horrors,any day! :o Albeit,his Messiah goes a tad too far,even for me! (My favourite recording is the one conducted by Karl Richter,on Deutsche Grammophon!)

I also like Maurice Abravanel's recording of the Rustic Wedding Symphony,very much. I have the BIS recording which pairs it with his Second Symphony,which isn't on the same level of inspiration,unfortunately. Although,it's interesting to hear,a pleasant listen & it has some nice writing (for horn,I believe? I'll need another listen!). I think the Rustic Wedding is a lovely piece!


I'd rather listen to any of Beecham's recordings of Handel arrangements than any of those HIP horrors.

I am with you on the Rustic Wedding Symphony too; a lovely piece it is.
