These hugely welcome releases are obviously not part of the Richard Itter Broadcast Collection. Indeed the Bate/Bax was originally to be a Dutton release; there has clearly been some complex change of plans!
Wilfred Josephs has been grievously neglected by the record companies and the double cd from Lyrita will be a belated tribute to a fine composer. Following on from the three Malcolm Lipkin symphonies and the Cyril Rootham Symphony No.2, released by Lyrita a few months ago, hopes for a continuing revival of the music of seriously neglected British composers of the mid and late-20th century continue to grow.
Now.....what about the Daniel Jones symphonies,more Arnold Cooke and William Wordsworth, the Peter Racine Fricker symphonies....?
Some of us have been waiting most of our lifetimes!
