Have you heard the Egge cello concerto, Jeffrey?
I think so Lol but not entirely sure. I also like the Symphony No.2

PS Yes, I have Lol as it features on the same CD as symphonies 2 and 4 but I will listen to it again. Do you like it?

No Jeffrey, not heard anything by Egge but this looks promising being a good copy at a (fairly) sensible price. Bit put off by the coupling though.

Oh, I have that LP too Lol.
Symphony No.1 remains my top recommendation.

That's enough for me. I didn't fancy a trombone concerto R/S to be fair. ;)
