Quote from: Harry on April 14, 2007, 01:15:20 PMThanks for this wonderful but said article. But still could not find the Lyrita recordings nor any other.You made me truly curious, so now I will roam the ends of the world, to get some music from him.
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on April 14, 2007, 03:32:54 PMThe symphonies and piano concertos are on the Albany label, Harry, available from Amazon and Amazon UK. Full-price, though, which is why I'm collecting them s l o w l y. . .Sarge
Quote from: Harry on April 14, 2007, 01:02:06 PMhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Lloyd_%28composer%29You lucky man, having all the Symphonies taped.Tell us all about his music, I am very curious how they sound.Could not find any commercial recordings.You know of any?
Quote from: Robert on April 15, 2007, 10:45:24 AMHARRY,Archiv Music has his complete output.....They also have one disc a compilation of his works. That disc is about 11 dollars all the other discs are about 17. I own his 5 7 and 11. I enjoy his work but not enough to go after his whole ouput....
Quote from: springrite on April 15, 2007, 10:54:06 AMNAXOS has some, so you can sample a disc or two fairly cheaply.I have heard 4 or 5 symphonies and one concerto, along with some shorter pieces. Frankly, I find Lloyd's musis rather boring -- a bit more interesting than Stanford, but not as interesting as Parry ( to name two composers somewhat similar ).
Quote from: Harry on April 15, 2007, 11:02:44 AMNever saw them on Naxos! Are you sure, could you post the images?I have both Stanford and Parry, their Orchestral works.But know I know were to place them.Thanks.
Quote from: Harry on April 15, 2007, 10:47:53 AMWhat to expect from this music, can you compare it to one of his fellow composers?Describe his music, even?
Quote from: Robert on April 15, 2007, 11:19:42 AMLloyds music is hard to categorize. it is very accessible. long-lined melodies, highly melodic and spirited. great orchestration, very tuneful...a little like movie music....it is interesting.....I have been thinking who he would be like and I keep thinking Arnold without the edge....not as serious.....but interesting enough....I eventually return to him, he is not in my player enough....I have not given up on him....ASMF his fourth and ninth and cello conc are on my list....Im sure I will pick up his fourth soon....
Quote from: Harry on April 15, 2007, 11:21:38 AMThanks Robert, that's enough for me to go on. Are those Albany records any good, soundwise?
Quote from: Robert on April 15, 2007, 11:22:57 AMYES.....

Quote from: Harry on April 15, 2007, 01:47:00 PMWell everyone eats his soup as she or he likes it right?I will try all of them and report back, but if it is anything like Parry or Stanford it will be oke with me!
