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: mjwal on April 11, 2011, 09:21:55 AMI think you'll find the Tasmin Little/Piers Lane CD of the 4 violin sonatas very superior.
Quote from: Lethe Dmitriyevna Pettersson on November 21, 2011, 12:11:22 PMErm, do want!! Especially the Decca, as it won't include the stone age-sounding Beecham recordings *hides*

Quote from: madaboutmahler on November 21, 2011, 01:26:13 PMAm instantly excited! To the Christmas wishlist they go! Will probably go for the Decca one - love Mackerras' way with Delius!
Quote from: J. Z. Herrenberg on January 29, 2012, 07:59:03 AMFrederick Delius was born 150 years ago today. Long may his music live!
Quote from: johnshade on May 17, 2007, 06:43:33 AMI am a native of north Florida and have several recordings of Delius. This is my favorite Delius especially the Florida Suite. It is truly a great CD.Delius based his Florida Suite, composed in 1887, on native American music and African-American spirituals. Dvorak's Symphony #9, From the New World, was composed after the Florida Suite in 1893. I believe that the Florida Suite is equally as delightful as Dvorak's symphony. The Florida Suite is influenced by the native music Delius heard while living on an orange grove near Jacksonville, Florida.
Quote from: J. Z. Herrenberg on February 01, 2012, 11:11:49 AMHere I am! The contents of that EMI box are excellent. I know many, if not most of the recordings. Sir Charles Groves is really underestimated as a Delian - his Sea-Drift and Mass of Life, for example, are excellent. Beecham and Barbirolli are great, too, of course. Anyone who wants to get to know Delius, can't go wrong with this box!
