Quote from: 71 dB on April 16, 2007, 11:09:26 AMWalton first Symphony is very good but I also find it strenuous in it's screaming aggression. The opening bars are wonderful but quiet. This makes me turn more volume and rest of the symphony is very loud.(Naxos)The first symphony didn't make me want more. I don't have a need to explore more Walton.

Quote from: bhodges on April 24, 2007, 09:28:40 AMIf you like big works for chorus and orchestra, definitely check out Belshazzar's Feast, which is loads of fun. I like Andrew Litton's version, with Bryn Terfel in the solo part.

Quote from: tjguitar on May 16, 2007, 10:35:55 AMHoly smokes, EMI has apparently re-issued it's Handley's 1988 recording of Walton's 1st (in the UK at least). This is my favorite recording of the work, much better than Handley's other recording for ASV. http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000BTDLRY/
