Photographers direct have a very interesting photo of Stanley Bate and a seated Vaughan Williams (and some others).If anyone hasn't seen it,it certainly is worth seeing. I am a newbie to hyperlinks,so if this doesn't work,just google the site! Otherwise,Johan,"HE-E-L-P!"

Good luck with those tapes,Dundonnell.

Heavens....Bate does look very 'intense' and highly strung in those photos, I would say.

Thanks for the link. Once you get to the site you need to do a search for 'Stanley Bate' and the photos cannot be copied and reproduced without a fee being paid :)

Thank you Johan. The one with VW is a bit of a cracker,in my opinion.
I thought you might ignore the warning!!!!!

He looks a bit like Bernard Haitink.

I was thinking somewhere between Richter and Rawsthorne, although more perculiar than both.

(Hey, we're talking about the right composer again, albeit by way of... tons of others ;D)

It could be worse,you could be in prison for reproducing photos of a certain pianistically inclined composer.

Great photos of Bate and VW - thanks for posting Johan. I have only ever seen one of Bate before (also with VW at the Cheltenham Festival) although their may also be one of him at a jamming session with York Bowen (sorry Colin  ;D).

Yes, it makes a difference, seeing the face behind the music...

I am going to ignore this post, Jeffrey, on the basis that it is a singular aberration from a man of your excellent and sound judgment :)

Listening to Bate's Fourth Symphony tonight - the bleakly defiant conclusion is very moving. What a fine work it is.

I'm ashamed to say that I've not got round to Bate's 4th yet (although I really love the 3rd) - somehow the fact that the Arnell coupling is a 'realisation' has slightly reined-in my usual impetuosity (I greatly enjoy the Arnell discs I have - Symphonies 1-6 and all 4 ballets).

I promise myself that I will get it soon, if only to encourage Dutton to record more Stanley Bate (Piano and Violin Concertos, please)!

 ;D

Must try that trick again.

Wow, that CD seems custom-aimed at me - I like Reizenstein based on his solo piano and chamber music :)
