Bartok's Rhapsody number 2 for violin, unusually for classical clips found on youtube it is actually this recording as well :D

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I like that one as well Tony, I must dig out more of my Bartok :D

Moved onto something lighter and more obscure. Another record I forgot I had it is so long since I played it

The ballet music for The Triumph of Neptune by Lord Berners

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Love it! :D

Although I have to say that the recording sounds a bit dodgy to me. I'll play my copy instead. ;)

It's not the best, I also prefer my copy played by the LPO conducted by Sir Adrian Boult however that doesn't appear to be on youtube :roll:

As for the Symphony on a Hymn Tune by Virgil Thomson which I am listening to at the moment I cannot find any version on youtube, yet it is brilliant :shock:

Love that song Sister J.! This is one of my favorites:

Havergal Brian, Symphony No. 5 'The Wine of Summer' . It doesn't really sound like a symphony more of an expanded cantata for baritone and orchestra.

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I have several of Brian's symphonies, my record with 5 on it has number 25 on the other side :D Unfortunately I cannot find number 25 on youtube as I really like it :roll:
