Quote from: Albion on April 27, 2023, 05:32:59 AMYou couldn't really go wrong with Boult conducting Holst. Somewhere or other I've got a stunning broadcast by Charles Groves but I (typically) can't find it...
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on April 27, 2023, 06:09:35 AMIs it on cassette by any chance?PD
Quote from: vandermolen on April 27, 2023, 06:28:55 AMI rate Groves highly and love the box set of his recordings. Next time you are involved in a collision with a Leaning Tower of CDs it may well turn up.
Quote from: Albion on April 27, 2023, 06:30:15 AMIt will be somewhere on a CD-R but my labeling system is as chaotic as my life in general...
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on April 27, 2023, 07:18:52 AMI did find a partial upload of an off-air recording with Groves (from 1967). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ia2Pp9YhZYPD
Quote from: Albion on April 27, 2023, 08:53:59 AMThis is the same broadcast of the opera subsequently issued by Lyrita.It's not bad, but the cuts are important and the recording is totally surpassed by Handley.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on April 27, 2023, 09:33:39 AMAh interesting, thanks. Well, the person who uploaded it also mentioned that his copy had been on cassette and that he wasn't able to salvage all of it!Currently, I'm listening to a different English composer: Elton John. PD

Quote from: lordlance on April 27, 2023, 06:15:29 PMMight I recommend two great Elton John songs?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qx87tqiKpvwhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcGT9wTpCn8
Quote from: calyptorhynchus on May 30, 2023, 03:41:14 PMJust been listening to this splendid Symphony by Hubert Clifford (originally from Australia):It's surprising that having written such a wonderful work Clifford should not have produced anything much else (the other works of his I have heard are nowhere near as compelling).
Quote from: kyjo on May 31, 2023, 07:05:12 AMI listened to the Clifford symphony a few months ago and enjoyed it until the slow movement which I found to be rather tedious. I definitely prefer Bainton's 2nd on that disc with its dramatic, Baxian ethos, and as Jeffrey mentions his 3rd symphony is even finer.
Quote from: Irons on May 31, 2023, 11:54:14 PMFunny how composers get twinned. I cannot comment on the symphonies as I have not heard them yet but enjoy the string quartets especially Bainton's.
