Quote from: kyjo on March 14, 2023, 06:19:55 AMI could not agree more, Danny! Lloyd's music has a special communicative power to myself and several others who've had the fortune of discovering it. His musical language is deeply personal and instantly recognizable in its wonderfully accessible marriage of Romantic emotion and drama with 20th century (tonal) harmony and brilliant orchestration techniques. And perhaps most importantly, he had the uncanny ability to write long strings of indelibly memorable tunes/ideas within the context of a cohesive symphonic argument. Whilst his Symphonies nos. 4-8, 11, and A Symphonic Mass represent the absolute cream of the Lloydian crop IMO, there isn't a single work I know by him that doesn't provide me with immense pleasure and satisfaction (except for perhaps his 10th Symphony for brass band ). Okay, I'll stop gushing now!
Quote from: Brian on March 14, 2023, 12:03:24 PMThe Fourth and Fifth Symphonies are on my "must see live before I die" list - if someone plays them within 500 miles, I'll need to travel for them.
Quote from: Albion on March 15, 2023, 05:05:24 AMThere are plans afoot! In the meantime, here are Nos.6 and 9 conducted by Edward Downes (broadcast respectively in 1981 and 1983)...https://www.mediafire.com/file/k8pygjskyi8bzzv/Lloyd_-_Symphony_No.6_%25281956%2529.mp3/filehttps://www.mediafire.com/file/lf2516z4ov3fp0j/Lloyd_-_Symphony_No.9_%25281969%2529.mp3/file
Quote from: relm1 on March 15, 2023, 05:39:57 AMI like his early symphonies very much too. No. 3 is great!
Quote from: foxandpeng on March 15, 2023, 05:58:58 AMThank you so much. I will grab these as soon as I emerge.
Quote from: Albion on March 15, 2023, 07:21:53 AMI've not emerged for decades and have no intention of so doing...
Quote from: Maestro267 on March 15, 2023, 05:32:13 AMI am hopeful that the Lyrita plans actually push through and don't get lost in the mists of time. I'm missing a number of the symphonies and I may wind up even getting the new issues of the ones I've already got. I certainly need a new Eleventh as the one I have is for SACD hybrids but my player (ie. computer) doesn't seem to register those.
Quote from: kyjo on March 15, 2023, 07:03:17 AMOh yes, the deeply Romantic slow movement in particular is truly something special with its "swoon-inducing" main theme. His first three symphonies are all significant achievements for an 18-19 year old!
