Chisholm: Piano Concertos 1 & 2 (Hyperion: CDA6788&hellip ~ Danny Driver
However, his style is not so barbaric like some of Bartok's works, and much more elaborate than them. I think that it is wrong to call him MacBartok. At least, he absorbed various modern techniques from his contemporaries, Arnold Bax, Florent Schmidt and so on. I like Piano Concerto No.1 "Piobaireachd" but the second concerto "Hindustani" is too complicating for me to comprehend its intent.
Arnold Bax Symphony in F (realised by Martin Yates&hellip ~ Arnold Bax

3.0 out of 5 stars A study of his youth, 10 Feb 2014
This symphony was written in 1907, when Bax was twenty four years old, Although the progress of its music is somewhat awkward, there are a lot of melodies which appear frequently jn turn. It's an evidence that young Bax
had n abundant talent. The realisation done by Martin Yates went well, I suppose. One defect on this symphony is too long to concentrate one's mind to listen. This work does not represent his Celtic tendency particularly.
Lilacs In The Spring [DVD] [1954] <b>DVD</b> ~ Errol Flynn
4.0 out of 5 stars Good old days England, 15 Aug 2012
THE LILACS IN THE SPRING is a very old fashioned romantic love story. Its atmosphere reminds me of it in the same time Japanese films directed by
Yasujiro Ozu. Errol Flynn's part woukd be Ryu Chishu. Anna Neagle acted like Setsuko Hara. As for the world of those films, Herbert Wilcox and Ozu
created the same good old days romance basically. Although we never go back to their world again. it is still attractive for us.
