Delius under revival!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Essential Delius (Audio CD)
What an exquisite couple of discs!!! Sadly Delius has suffered relative neglect here along with other very fine 'British' composers like EJ. Moeran, Arnold Bax, John Ireland and Sir Granville Bantock. I accept Delius was from German stock and lived much of his life in France but many musicians regard him as quintessentially British, English even! These two discs offer a reasonable cross section of his work and how beautiful much of it is too. When I was a child during the mid 1940s I had an uncle who played Delius very frequently on 78rpm shellack discs using equipment with thorn needles which always seemd to require re-sharpening in the middle of each side of the 12" discs. Happy memories!!
This edition apperas to be a re release and is excellent value for money!!
