Quote from: Captain Haddock on June 11, 2007, 11:36:19 PMThe book is great, I just bought it. Can't you order the Lyritas from Amazon UK? Maybe the postage is very high.
Quote from: tjguitar on June 12, 2007, 12:41:39 AMSure but its cheaper to wait for Amazon US plus I got extra points w/ my amazon.com visa card (amazon uk or any other international amazon doesnt count)
Quote from: Captain Haddock on June 12, 2007, 07:22:39 AMI understand, I hope that they get to the US soon. Is there much interest in British composers in the USA?
Quote from: tjguitar on June 12, 2007, 09:29:56 AMI guess it depends what you mean by "much" ...I mean, Is there much interest in *ANY* classical music in the USA?
Quote from: Captain Haddock on June 12, 2007, 01:07:59 PMYes, I understand. Do British composers ever appear in classical concerts in the USA?
Quote from: bhodges on June 12, 2007, 01:18:10 PMOther than Elgar and Vaughan Williams, apparently not that often (at least, based on casual observation of concert programs over the years). Actually, the British composer whom I've seen listed most often recently has been...Harrison Birtwistle! But no Delius, little Holst (other than The Planets), no Grainger, Tippett, Bridge, Berkeley...and I don't think I've ever seen a Bax symphony listed anywhere.--Bruce
Quote from: bhodges on June 12, 2007, 01:41:17 PMThis really surprises me! (And I confess I haven't yet heard all of the Bax symphonies.) Especially given all the publicity and good comments about the Handley set, I assumed that they show up with some regularity. --Bruce
Quote from: PerfectWagnerite on June 13, 2007, 04:18:04 AMDo American composers ever appear in classical concerts in Britain? Or in any other country? Composers that appear everywhere tend to be German/Austrian for the most part. Sure there are exceptions like Sibelius, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky to name a few others but I'd say 80-90% of the repertoire is German/Austrian.
Quote from: tjguitar on June 13, 2007, 07:58:15 AMAs far as live concerts go, the only Briitsh music Ive heard are some choral works from Walton (Balshazzar's Feast) and RVW (I don't know the piece but it was around Christmastime)----thats about it.
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 June 12, 2007, 01:34:47 PMBax is rarely performed in Britain. The last Bax symphony to be performed at the London Proms was No 5 in 1984 (I was there). The Albert Hall was half empty
