Albion describes the string orchestra genre as 'difficult' and so it is but SC-T, as a violinist and as a conductor of string ensembles knew exactly how to write for the medium to maximum effect. As Albion also wrote, "Parry's writing for strings is second to none, neither Dvorak nor Tchaikovsky". I'd put SC-T's writing for strings in the same class. But then I would, wouldn't I?  Wink

Indeed you would! And bless you for championing such a magnificent composer as S C-T. I hope you enjoy the recording...


He's got a good showing in BIMA. The archive is nearly up to mediafire capacity now, so there'd better be no more bloody broadcasts of wonderful music (as if)...
