Quote from: springrite on February 03, 2022, 08:52:48 AMI also like 3 very much, and maybe 6.
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on February 03, 2022, 04:56:49 PMThe composer who I associate Alwyn with is William Walton. There is something about the perky and lush orchestration and the rhythms they used that seem to me rather characteristic. Perhaps Alwyn is less ceremonial and less close to the "Queen", though.
Quote from: springrite on February 03, 2022, 10:22:58 PMYes, but Walton's music is "English" more in an "imperialistic" way. Alwyn is not like that at all.
Quote from: vandermolen on February 03, 2022, 10:55:50 AMA perfectly good point Lol. No blue touch paper going off here - after all it isn't Downing Street Actually Bax and Alwyn's music is quite different, although I feel that Alwyn's 3rd Symphony, for example, has something epic and Baxian about it. In some ways I see Rubbra as the successor to Vaughan Williams as there is a kind-of spiritual quality to his music.
Quote from: vers la flamme on February 04, 2022, 03:06:02 AMThe first piano concerto is really great. Quite neoclassical, very motivically oriented. I have the Howard Shelley/Hickox/LSO on Chandos. Thinking maybe I ought to get the Naxos recording with Peter Donohoe. I generally like his work.
Quote from: kyjo on February 04, 2022, 06:58:47 AMGreat, now listen to the 2nd PC!
Quote from: Irons on February 04, 2022, 12:50:04 AMCoincidently Jeffrey, listening last night to a piece I know you like very much - but not your preferred recording - Alwyn's Pastoral Fantasia, I thought the same. A spiritual quality and the stamp of RVW all over it. So maybe there is more to connect Rubbra and Alwyn then separates them.
Quote from: vandermolen on June 30, 2022, 10:28:17 PMImportant piece of Alwyn news.Joe Alwyn is the great grandson of the composer https://metro.co.uk/2022/07/01/taylor-swift-plans-wedding-with-joe-alwyn-after-secret-engagement-16923904/
Quote from: Papy Oli on July 20, 2022, 07:53:48 AMLovely pictures, Lol. That church in Blyhtburgh is gorgeous inside and out. Enjoy your trip in Suffolk/East Anglia. It is a special neck of the woods.
Quote from: vandermolen on July 20, 2022, 10:32:10 PM+1 Great photos Lol. Good to see Alwyn's and Doreen's graves.
Quote from: Irons on July 21, 2022, 07:43:42 AMI thought maybe seeking out composer's graves a bit odd, Jeffrey.
