Last night's Proms broadcasts of Coleridge-Taylor are now in the archive:

Symphony in A minor, Op.8 (1896)
Overture to The Song of Hiawatha, Op.30 No.3 (1899)
Chineke! Orchestra/ Kalena Bovell

 :)
Which archive are you referring to?
I can't find it in the Downloads section.

I have added the Youtube American premiere of Ethel Smyth's The Wreckers (Bard School 2015) in the form of an MP3 file to BIMA, and amplified it by several decibels. I have updated the catalogue accordingly.

Thank you, John.

I greatly admire these pieces; while on the surface they appear to be cut from similar cloth to the Petite Suite de Concert of 1911, they seem to me to have, in parts, considerable profundity. There are certainly hints of Tchaikovsky in the first movement but, more significantly I think, there's an Elgarian wistfulness about the opening of the third movement Valse which later rises to a really impassioned climax. In the 'What are you currently listening to?' thread, 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?  ;)

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)...



...ever.

BAH!!!

Championing the music of SC-T has been one of the great joys of my life. He is, as you so rightly say, a magnifcent composer who seems finally to be regaining his rightful place in the Pantheon.

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...

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