Quote from: Harry on May 14, 2007, 10:43:45 PMSure I like his music, and have some of it, but it never made a profound statement for me.Nice enough but nothing more. Sweet rural music. I have the usual blockbusters, but did not play it for years.Have to dive a little in his oeuvre. Thanks for bringing him up.
Quote from: springrite on May 14, 2007, 11:11:00 PMMay I suggest some Delius works that are not among "the ususal suspects"? Try the violin sonatas. They are delightly. They are the only works by Delius that Vanessa loves. If they are good enough for Vanessa, surely Harry would love them as well!
Quote from: Harry on May 14, 2007, 11:21:22 PMAbsolutely Paul, I will fortwith try to find some recordings of it.Feel free to give some suggestions.

Quote from: Sergeant Rock on May 15, 2007, 04:33:23 AMThis is one of my favorite Delius recordings:...............................This is another:Mackerras conducts Delius in a way that might convince skeptics of Delius's music: no dainty, lazy summer's walk in the country, scrupulously avoiding the cowpats, here. The music is full-blooded, passionate, with almost overwhelming climaxes.The twofer contains: Brigg Fair, Florida Suite, In a Summer Garden, The Walk to the Paradise Garden, Two Aquarelles, On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring, Summer Night on the River, Dance Rhapsody 1 and 2, and the relatively rare North Country Sketches.Sarge

QuoteConcertos Cello + Violin/Cello & Paris-Song of a Great City w/ Little & Wallfisch; Mackerras + Royal Liverpool PO.
Quote from: tjguitar on May 15, 2007, 11:18:15 AMI've been looking at this CD, it's certainly in the price range ($6.98, also part of amazon's 4-for-3). Does this get as much praise as the Mackerras Double Decca?
Quote from: SonicMan on May 15, 2007, 12:32:09 PMFinally, I've not heard Beecham in this orchestral repertoire although he seems to gleem some of the better if not the best comments regarding Delius performances - my only reservations would be the 'sound quality' of these older recordings, which has received some negative reviews; but I'm 'open' to all considerations & suggestions - Thanks.
