Re: George Lloyd and Peter Racine Fricker from Lyrita

When you mention Bax's 3rd Symphony, you're talking my kind of language, Jeffrey. It was one of the two Bax symphonies Lyrita didn't record (the other was the 4th). The work of recording the other 5 was shared (with great success) by three conductors. One of these (I've forgotten who) recorded No.3 with either the Sydney or Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and it was released on an ABC LP - but never, it seems, on CD. Without in any way discounting Downes' performance (which I also haven't heard) I'd be very grateful for a CD release of the Australian performance, on Lyrita or any other label.
