20th Century British Orchestral Music conducted by Bliss/Previn/Tippett/Pinkett - Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra
KHCD-2012-022DL (STEREO) - Bliss: Introduction and Allegro - conducted by Sir Arthur Bliss; Previn: Overture to a Comedy - conducted by André Previn; Chappell: Overture-Panache - conducted by André Previn; Ireland: Elegy from 'A Downland Suite' - conducted by André Previn; Kelly: Cuban Suite - conducted by Eric Pinkett; Tippett: 'Interlude II' and 'Epilogue' from 'The Shires Suite' - conducted by Sir Michael Tippett - Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra - First recordings of 20th Century British orchestral works with a stellar cast of conductors leading the extraordinarily talented Leicestershire Schools Symphony. One need not shy from this collection, as both the quality of the music and the playing are quite enjoyable. Derived from a near-mint Argo LP, a judicious bit of balance correction and ambience was done to enhance the experience. Thanks to John Whitmore for suggesting this reissue, and providing archival materials regarding the recording and its performers.
