2 discs, with half of these interpretations already included in the EMI Delius collection. I had to have it all.

A set Iíve treasured for years and thatís been in my collection since í09. Barbirolliís Delius is certainly in a class of itsí own. His performance of In a Summer Garden and Appalachia are still my references for these works. Iíve even come to prefer him over Beecham, which is blasphemy amongst Delians Iím sure, but I donít care. Beecham wasnít all that IMHO. Am I grateful for the work Beecham has done for Delius? Absolutely, but many better Delians have walked the road after Beecham to even greater effect (thanks in large part to the advancement in recording technology and more-rounded orchestras).

Act 2 of this. I like how Kleiber allows for the melodic line to come out quite easily without sounding forced, although the tempo changes sound a bit odd to me and tend to be a bit slower than what I am used to (without really bringing out the interesting aspects of a slower tempo)

Nos.1 and 4. Dresden wind players are the best.

Dreadful choice, but I hope you are enjoying it :)

They should be glad they have a champion like yourself who doesn't care that they lie through their teeth on a daily basis.

This may indeed be remembered as the shithole covfefe presidency.


That didn't answer the question.

I treasure that collection of Barbirolli recordings. If I recall correctly, the notes have a touching description of Barbirolli's last recording sessions, and a splendid photo of Barbirolli conducting the a recording session in Kingsway Hall.

My first ever Rosenkavalier...



Nos 3 and 8 will be new additions as well.



Orchestral excerpts from Bruneauís operas. …mile Zola wrote the libretto for 2 of these operas, the 3rd one being written on a Zola story.
