I also agree with everyone listed. Fricker is probably one of the 20th century's greatest composers. I've emailed Cpo & Chandos to enquire if they could record him but it seems that they think he wouldn't sell that well.
The symphony#2 is the only one commercially available. It is sad in a way. As much as I like Arnell & Rubbra, I do think Fricker's music is more substantial. I've heard his 3rd & 5th symphonies & they're quite impressive.This composer should be recorded by CPO.
Then again, what about William Wordsworth?
