Today he'd be elected President!   There are some good recordings of his orchestral music on Chandos and a set from Tod Handley and various Australian orchestras.  They are persuasive advocates all but you'd be hard pressed to argue he's a major "missing" composer.

Yes, better known as a conductor. He recorded the best version of Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings I have heard along with Peter Pears and Dennis Brain. Beats the composer's own IMO.

I am a big fan of the contemporary composer Donald Grantham.  The following is a collection of some his band works.  As happens with so many of my band CD's I end up getting duplicate recordings of work.  In this there are two works that I have no recordings of in my library: Court Music and Don't You See.  I was checking out the availability of his work and his Fantasy Variations on George Gershwin Second Prelude is permanently our of print.  I wonder why?




The following sound track is from a mediocre film: Taras Bulba.  This is a film you watch for the music.  With this CD I do not have to watch the film.

From Arkivmusic


And separately--because Arkivmusic doesn't seem to have it--from Amazon MP, the second volume of the Monteverdi 1650 collection, and--because it was cheaper--the Sixteen's Eton Choir Book Collection.

I have just enough of it that it does not tempt me, even at this price.  Rattle is at his best here, and so is Bostridge.

AMEN!  I just mentioned watching Taras Bulba over the weekend...mainly for the music, although I did like watching Yul Brynner as a Cossack!   ;)

Actually it's Heather Harper & Marriner in Les Illuminations, Neil Mackie, Barry Tuckwell & Steuart Bedford in the Serenade, and Robert Tear & Jeffrey Tate in the Nocturne. All terrific readings, too, as are the Bostridge/Rattle.

Oh dear!  I would have to see what I have, but I like Bostridge so much in those works that the temptation from that box for me just lessened.

Every Haendel performance is like a spiritual experience. She is one of the greatest musicians - of any instrument - I have heard.

That entire series looks very interesting.  The Jerusalem Quartet doing the string quartet (w/ the Ravel) I've wishlisted to remind me of the others.
