Re: George Lloyd and Peter Racine Fricker from Lyrita
I think that we need to remind ourselves that the current Lyrita/Richard Itter Broadcast Collection release programme can only be expected to feature those recordings made by Itter from BBC broadcasts during the period 1952-96 and which have been the subject of a special arrangement between Lyrita, the BBC and the Musician's Union. Recordings like the Bax Symphony No.3, made by an entirely different company, are a completely separate subject, no doubt complicated by all manner of complex copyright issues.
Jeffrey Davis is however quite correct to mention the music of Ruth Gipps (which I realise I far too often forget). Both the Gipps Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4 were broadcast during the "Itter period" and it is therefore perfectly possible that Itter recorded them. We shall simply have to wait to find out.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
