Good to read Rob Barnett extolling the virtues of this fine Latvian composer. The valedictory Symphony 20 is indeed one of the finest. Another one of his greatest symphonies is, in my opinion, No.11. There was an LP but like Gruner-Hegg's performance of Klaus Egge's fine First Symphony, Tjeknavorian's LSO recording of Khachaturian's First Symphony, Edward Downe's LSO recording of Bax's Third Symphony (both RCA) and Gordon Jacob's excellent Piano Concerto, for three hands it has never been released on CD.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
