Quote from: PerfectWagnerite on June 13, 2007, 08:54:24 AMDoes VW second symphony get performed often? It seems to be a very fine work?
Quote from: Captain Haddock on May 06, 2007, 12:11:38 AMI have just ordered Eugene Goosens conducting Bax Symphony 2 on Dutton (1950s recording) which sounds like a very exciting release (with Tintagel etc)http://www.duttonvocalion.co.uk/proddetail.asp?prod=CDBP9779I wish that RCA would issued Edward Downes's excellent LSO performance of Symphony 3 on CD (unlikely I think as RCA have cut right back on classical issues).This was my introduction to Bax when Lancaster University had the LP in their library in the 1970s. I spent most of my time in the library listening to it!
Quote from: Anancho on June 23, 2007, 07:52:30 AMInteresting about the Symphony 2. I just favouritised the Dutton page to order it after this. I was so impressed with their rework of Barbirolli and the Symphony 3. I studied this work in some detail against a casette tape recorded from a reissued LP. I'm also acquainted with the Downes, the more recent Naxos and the Bryden Thompson which I simply couldn't get on with. Bless his soul, but his tempi are all over the place especially the last movement with exaggerated changes that I found exasperating. I was happier with his 4th. The great news is that the Lyrita 6th is up for reissue this month. Magical, that one.

Quote from: Anancho on June 30, 2007, 02:36:12 AMUnless caiman has it, I'll be ordering from musicweb international. And about time this got reissued. I think it first came out around 1964 and Mr Itter would not be persuaded to reissue it. Next looking out for the 2nd and 5th on Lyrita.

Quote from: vandermolen on July 12, 2007, 04:45:30 AMJust received the new Lyrita Bax Symphony 6 (Del Mar); a great disc with an appropriately atmospheric photograph of the coastline at Morar (Scotland), where Bax composed most of the symphony( see photo above). The remastering is excellent; the epilogue is hauntingly beautiful and the CD comes with some interesting fill-ups, including "Irish Landscape", "Overture to Adventure" etc.
Quote from: tjguitar on July 12, 2007, 08:25:31 AMthanks for the note. Can't wait for it. I bit the bullet and ordered from amazon uk instead of waiting for the US release.
Quote from: vandermolen on July 12, 2007, 01:04:01 PMYou wont be disappointed. The sleeve notes, from the old Lyrita LP by Peter J Pirie are also excellent.
Quote from: tjguitar on July 14, 2007, 07:00:06 PMThere's a review of the new Lyrita disc by Graham Parlett on the Bax website:http://musicweb.uk.net/bax/lyrita.htm
Quote from: vandermolen on July 15, 2007, 04:10:09 PMMany thanks, I read it with great interest and largely agree with the conclusions. I am looking forward to Symphony 2 and 5 (my favourite) appearing in due course.
Quote from: tjguitar on July 15, 2007, 06:44:42 PMI believe that's coming in January of next year. It was originally slated to be reissued in May, I do not know why they switched the schedule.
