John Quinn's review of Rubbra's 4th Symphony (Somm)
Posted by Jeffrey Davis on August 2, 2018, 10:30 am
I read John's excellent review of this fine historical release of Rubbra's 4th and 2nd symphonies. I'd just like to add that, in his premiere/Prom performance of Symphony 4, Rubbra takes the redemptive coda much slower than either Hickox or Del Mar in their recordings, investing it with even greater power and dignity - it is by far my favourite recorded version of Rubbra's great symphony.
