    Bruckner, Symphony No. 6

    Jochum does a nice job with his Dresden forces on this one.

    The Arditti Quartet: The Complete String Quartets of Harrison Birtwistle.

    Birtwistle, a supposedly "modern" composer. I listened to it, and enjoyed it; then I realized....He's not really that modern! He's still dealing with pitch! If you will notice, the strings are all playing pitches! No glissandos, no scraping, no thumping...This is really conservative music.

    I think I've heard all recordings of Walton Symps. 1 and 2...


    ...and best recording and performance of #2 is this 1988 album:

    R-7278941-1437865687-6683.jpeg.jpg


    For Walton #1, may fave is Colin Davis/LSO (Dec. 2005 live recording):
