    I was listening to the wonderful, if little heard, "The Blue Bird" (1913) by Ralph Vaughan Williams on BBC Radio 3 yesterday. It was its premiere from the English Music Festival at Dorchester-on-Thames. I have absolutely fallen in love with this piece just as I did in 1984 with RVW 2. Now "tweaked" by Martin Yates, I really hope that this will become performed regularly including at the Proms. It would sit so well with that several-times-reworked 2nd symphony which is from the same period, at least in its earliest forms.

    BBC Concert Orchestra/Martin Yates, just after the 1 hour mark:

    There is some other excellent music here, especially from my point of view Milford's second symphony and obviously the Delius.

    But actually, there isn't anything in this programme I don't like.

    Brahms: Symphony No. 1. Bohm/Vienna. Elegant, considered and affectionate. When I’m in the mood for this approach to Brahms, Bohm is hard to beat. The orchestra excels with this material. Recommended.
