A recording of three CBR works (Op.20 and Op.49 quartets, Op.27 quintet) will go ahead in April.
And there is now a generated MP3 of CBR's Op.12 "Réminiscences des Alpes Bavaroises" (1906). The work is for violin and piano, and thanks to MuseScore's technology you can listen while following the score: Op.12 Réminiscences MP3
This charming piece lasts about 11 minutes and is dedicated "à son ami H. Haydn Inwards"
- one of the violinists of the Gompertz Quartet. One puzzle: is the work's title a pure coinicidence, or is it intended as quiet homage to Elgar's 1895 songs (Op.27 "From the Bavarian Highlands")?
