I got it in this set, which is OOP:



There was yet another Decca set with different recordings of the Symphonies and Cello Concerto



And look at this:



Very nice, Daverz. 8) The second set you posted (with Litton, et. al.) is the one I own, but can’t find. Oh well, the price was certainly cheap enough, so when I do find this set, I can always gift this recording to someone. The blu-ray concert looks very nice, indeed, but I’ll probably pass on it for now as I want to find Tony Palmer’s DVD on Walton.

Just bought:







Now, I believe, I own all of the Walton Chandos recordings that I wanted. I didn’t buy recordings like Henry V or Hamlet, for example, because of the recitation (unless there’s a way to edit these out?).

Of course there is: rip and delete.  :D

This one is interesting to me.  Sampling on Spotify, it sounds very good - and a nice variety of composers/works.

The viola suites and the two serenades for flute, violin and viola.



Trumpet concertos by Arutiunian, Weinberg and the horn concerto by Glière. I know the first two works well, but not the last. Weinberg’s concerto is an incredible piece, which must have inspired Shostakovich in his 15th symphony, written 5 years later.

I agree, the variety is what first captured my attention. I really like the small samples of Byrd's Lullaby that are scattered about, such an interesting, but effective choice. A great album!

More instances where hi res downloads are cheaper than physical releases.  The Schirmer is a concept album where she plays works Clara played, and it offers the first chance to hear the pianist in solo LvB (Op 53).  For Petrenko's first release, I went straight to the BPO site to buy and ended up with the seven format menu again.  I went for the 24/192 FLAC download to start because why not?

Well, the sound alone is worth the price (many times over).  Never buy CD when you have high res or SACD as an alternative.

I find that to be a very fine version of the Quintet.

I hoped so based on the credentials; now that it has your stamp of approval I can hardly wait to hear it.

Cheers. The Basset Clarinet is always preferable for me and the pacing on this one is quite good if I recall correctly. I look forward to your comments eventually.

Cheers to you, good sir. AFAIK, it's the basset clarinet that the works were originally written for, and this is one of the reasons I got this particular recording. I'll certainly report on the WAYLT thread.
