Bax's Symphony 3
Posted by Jeffrey Davis on June 30, 2016, 3:33 pm
I enjoyed your list of recommended recording of Bax's symphonies and tone poems and very much agree with the choices of your reviewers. In relation to Symphony No.3 I would, however, add Barbirolli's classic EMI recording (which last appeared on Dutton) and my own favourite, Edward Downes with the LSO which, very disappointingly, has still not appeared on CD. Like Tjeknavorian's LSO recording of Khachaturian's Symphony No.1(also RCA)this is one of the most annoying gaps in the CD catalogue.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
