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.


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.


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!  ;D

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