    I quite often post Birtwistle here and elsewhere. A year or two ago there were several people posting his music. I agree, an excellent composer.

    There was a thread recently where I think a majority had expressed doubt about Rattle's Szymanowski with some of them (including me!) noting that they could track their earlier doubts about Szymanowski's music to Rattle's accounts. I personally greatly prefer the Gergiev recording. As usual it is all down to individual's taste. I agree about Wit, though.
