    Guilmant's Symphony No.1 - It's apocoliptic! Nice slow movement too!

    Well, not exactly now, but a few minutes ago I was listening to Liszt's transcription of LvB's 7th. It was a bit uneasy listening to for the first couple of minutes or so, but after that it was great! I think I should get those CDs (I think it's on Naxos). I've heard the 8th before, and it's amazing how the whole orchestra is brought into a piano.

    Now listening to Finzi's Introit (Boult).

    Will check the radio playlist and come back to you

    Variations on an Original Theme (Enigma Variations)
    Baltimore Symphony Orchestra conducted by David Zinman
    Telarc CD-80192 t2

    My Dad recommends London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Pierre Monteux (1875-1964) recorded in 1958. Dad says its generally accepted as the best recording.

    Stravinsky's Petrushka on Radio 3, and very good it is too.
