Quote from: Lethe on June 07, 2008, 09:02:13 AMCan anyone suggest some of the essential recordings of his major concerti and orchestral works? I saw an appealing looking LP of his VC performed by Menuhin (EMI) in the charity shop I price music for, and it was one of those things which made me think "If I didn't hate vinyl, I'd buy that"... Sad that its CD incarnation seems to be coupled with an Elgar VC instead of the original Delius coupling (which I cannot remember what it was ATM).

Quote from: Wilhelm Richard on May 16, 2009, 07:21:15 AMAny thoughts on the operas of Delius? (specifically Koanga, Village Romeo and Juliet, and Fennimore and Gerda). Are they worth owning? I would love to hear them, but for some reason, used copies of the EMI recordings on Amazon seem to be a little on the pricey side.
Quote from: Dundonnell on May 30, 2009, 05:17:14 AMJust to demonstrate what a fair-minded man I really am.......For the attention of Delius fans(of whom I am not to be numbered ):Dutton is about to release a Delius disc. It will contain the Double Concerto for violin and cello, the Suite for violin and orchestra, the Legende for violin and orchestra, the Caprice and Elegy fror viola and orchestra(only previously available in its original scoring for cello and chamber orchestra)....and the early Tone Poem "Hiawatha"(1888) which has only recently been reconstructed from the original incomplete score.http://thompsonian.info/hiawatha.htmlfor more information about "Hiawatha".The BBC Concert Orchestra is conducted by David lloyd-Jones.
Quote from: Jezetha on June 14, 2009, 06:08:00 AMSlightly OT - Barry Humphries, the creator of Dame Edna Everage, was a guest recently on Desert Island Discs, a long-running programme on BBC Radio 4. I admire him greatly. I know he is a Langgaard fan, but at the end of a very enjoyable half hour he and I have even more in common.For those interested...http://www.mediafire.com/file/3g2yjnzmmlu/DID - Barry Humphries (R4 2009-05-24).mp3

Quote from: drogulus on June 15, 2009, 03:17:30 PM This combo is available with a different cover as a Classics for Pleasure disc. I've grown to like the Piano Concerto, though I don't think it's at the level of Finzi's Eclogue or the RVW concerto. It reminds me a little of Strauss's Burleske, a kind of mini-concerto itself.
