    Probably my favorite performance of this neglected but wonderful symphony!

    Havergal Brian, Violin Concerto, Symphony No. 18

    Continuing my exploration of neglected recordings at the bottom of my CD stack. This one shouldn't have been neglected.

    Usually my interest starts to wane after the Tuba Mirum, but this is a really convincing performance of great power and conviction, not to mention amazing soloists. Greatly recommended.
    Indeed. It's my favorite Mozart Requiem.

    Dvorak: Rusalka Sir Charles Mackerras on Decca
    Dvorak.jpg

    My only Dvorak opera. Excellent performance of a pleasing operatic work. But I'm still to be convinced that opera was Dvorak's strong suit. Whilst colourful, the work lacks the punch that would be soon added to Czech opera by Janacek.

    I fully agree with you regarding this 'wonderful but neglected symphony' and I also agree with your observation about this performance and recording. However I would ask (politely of course) whether you have heard the Segerstam Helsinki P.O.(Ondine) as to these ears it really is superb.....particularly with regard to the enigmatic central movement!

    Finishing todays Brahms cycle - I know the VPO Giulini cycle is not to everyone's taste, truth be told for a long while I didn't really care for them that much but I've grown to enjoy them simply as another take on a fine symphony cycle.
