Re: Sir Michael Tippett's Symphony in B flat

I was a close friend of Michael's from 1974 until his death. My wife and I traveled with him and Bill Bowen on three trips to America and Mexico in the late 70s and early 80s. He told me about this Symphony, and his withholding of said because of its Sibelian tone. He also told me that he hoped it would be performed and recorded after his death. I've been waiting 43 years to hear this work. I can't wait for the recording to be issued.
