Re: Bryden Thomson's Vaughan Williams symphony cycle
Thank you Len and Ford for your comments. I don't think that it's just Bryden Thomson's performances which are so good but also the Chandos recordings. They may sound a bit 'cavernous' at times as the recordings, I think, were made in a church but, personally, I like the depth which they produce. I must listen to his Symphony 8 again although the Previn version has always been my favourite recording. I own many (too many!) recordings of Walton's First Symphony but Bryden Thomson's recording on Chandos is one of the very finest in my view. Nice to see him getting some attention from Musicweb.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
