Enjoyed both rather recent Dutton releases with 'unknown' incidental music, this year. Especially the music for The Blue Bird (1913) is fine, IMHO:

… music is not only an 'entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

A pretty interesting video on the 5th symphony:

Excellent, John. Thanks for bringing to our attention.
You must have a very good opinion of yourself to write a symphony - John Ireland.

Me too, largely well-known facts, but put into a convincing argument for the music's greatness.  :)

I’m glad you all enjoyed it! I haven’t finished watching it, but I will (probably during lunchtime).
