Richard Franck.

Trio in B minor, opus 20 & E flat major, opus 32-for Piano, violin & Cello.

Christoph Schickedanz, Violin.
Thomas Blees, Cello.
Bernhard Fograscher, Piano.

One of those fine Franck recordings on audite. Good performance and sound, but my ears are still sore after an extensive bathing. :)
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

One last listen for the night:

Walton
As You Like It Suite
London Philharmonic
Carl Davis


From this set -



Very much the "forgotten" Walton/Shakespeare score but it is another cracker.  I like the version Marriner did as part of the Chandos/Walton Edition too

I absolutely loathe narration, so this why I could never get into those Walton works. The music, however, is first-rate.

I like the performance of As You Like It in the disc. Powerful and dramatic.

Robert de Visée - Chamber Music for the King w/ Manuel Staropoli and friends on recorders, Baroque flutes, theorbo, viola da gambas, and harpsichord - liberties have been taken with the scores and instrumentation as noted by 'quibbles' in the attached reviews, but for me in the relaxation of my den, the music pleases - recommended if you enjoy this French Baroque era and the period instruments used.  Dave :)

Quote
Robert de Visée (c. 1655 – 1732/1733) was a lutenist, guitarist, theorbist and viol player at the court of the French kings Louis XIV and Louis XV, as well as a singer and composer for lute, theorbo and guitar. (Source)

Motivated by posts in "Purchases Today":



Picked up this budget set a few years ago (it's now on the even cheaper Alto) and it's become a favorite.

Not sure, but I think I go further back (Olympia). I have Borodin and Fitzwilliam on vinyl but prefer the Shostakovich ensemble on CD - not a statement I often make viz LP and CD. The recording is on the edge which for this music I like.
You must have a very good opinion of yourself to write a symphony - John Ireland.

Gliere 3, Ormandy.

Do I remember this 'Ilya Muromets' having cuts?

Yes, shorter with cuts (and fast interpretation). Good idea.  :D

Sir Arthur Sullivan
Symphony in E Major "Irish"
The Tempest
Suite
In Memoriam Overture
BBC Philharmonic
Sir Richard Hickox


Maybe not a neglected masterpiece, but a very attractive, tuneful Romantic symphony with little hint of its Irish subtitle. I have never heard Sir Charles Groves' reading on EMI coupled with Sullivan's Cello Concerto (Julian Lloyd Webber on cello), but I am curious.
