Hi again. I saw there were other BBC Music Magazine cover cds uploaded here. These ones include complete works in live or studio performances by BBC SO or BBC regional orchestras, in quite good performances. I really like some of them, and not only for the performances. Their sound is great too, due to St David's Hall warm and nice acoustics. Enjoy!

Arthur Bliss - A Colour Symphony / Concerto for Violin and Orchestra (Richard Hickox, BBC National Orchestra Of Wales) [2012]

FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/96 kHz | Time - 73:40 minutes | 1,35 GB
Official Digital Download - Source: TheClassical Shop.net | Digital booklet

This release follows the recent Stanford Songs of the Sea release (CHSA 5043) from Hickox and the BBC NOW, which was ‘Recording of the Month’ in Gramophone magazine and ‘Classical CD of the Week’ in both The Times and The Daily Telegraph. In this new recording of Bliss’s Violin Concerto, Lydia Mordkovitch, famous for her readings of British music, offers her own personal interpretation of the part made famous by Alfredo Campoli, for whom the work was commissioned. Mordkovitch wonderfully conveys the romance and beauty of this concerto, as well as the fiery nature of the gypsy theme prominent in the finale. This is the only available recording of the Violin Concerto, uniquely coupling with A Colour Symphony. A Colour Symphony illustrates four heraldic colours by means of striking ideas and original orchestral effects. Hickox and the BBC NOW provide a refined and idiomatic reading, confirming this as one of Bliss’s most inventive, striking scores, neglected in recent years.
