I wish they'd issue his wonderful film score for 'Nicholas and Alexandra' on CD.

Are you brave?  ;)

Scena III (1977) for solo Clarinet:




So, less than 10% of his output is available on CD. There are several nice radio broadcasts and live videos on YT.

Thanks very much for posting this. Great to hear that fine score again. EMI were not allowed to reissue it on CD and it is not included on the Chandos CD of his film music.  :(

In addition to the Five Impromptus, RRB also wrote a larger sonata for Julian Bream in 1983, which does not get played much

His guitar music is all based on tone rows but not strict serial or 12-tone technique- is this true of his other music?
