Quote from: Catison on November 10, 2009, 05:12:21 PM He seems to be in the tradition of Prokofiev, not idiomatically, but in personality.
Quote from: Contents Under Pressure on November 10, 2009, 11:43:24 PMInteresting reaction. Why do you think of Prokofiev? Rubbra reminds me of a range of composers, from William Byrd to Brahms and Bruckner, but I must admit I never think of Prokofiev while listening to him.
Quote from: drogulus on August 20, 2010, 01:31:29 PM The Rubbra/Hickox cycle is still available at the Chandos site. It's not hideously expensive (£39.52 for lossless DL). I'd like to get an opinion from the good Rubbrists here. Should I go, or no?
Quote from: Mirror Image on August 20, 2010, 06:13:47 PMWhy would you want a download of it when you can own the set?
Quote from: Elnimio on January 07, 2011, 09:07:14 PMHis viola concerto is incredibly beautiful.
Quote from: Mirror Image on January 09, 2011, 09:08:05 PMIndeed. Have you heard his symphonies?
Quote from: Elnimio on January 10, 2011, 08:19:08 AMWorking on it. What I've heard so far has been great.
Quote from: Velimir on August 18, 2011, 11:39:07 PMListened to the Rubbra 7th Symphony a couple of times this week (Hickox recording). I now think this is probably his best symphony, at least of the ones I've heard. He solves the "finale problem" by putting there a really imposing passacaglia, similar to Brahms 4 but longer and more obsessive-sounding. I used to favor the 4th Symphony, but now I think the 7th is overall a solider composition.
