Itter Broadcast Collection on Lyrita - Richard Itter had a life-long fascination with recording and he habitually acquired professional equipment for disc and tape recording even for solely private use. From his home in Burnham he was able to receive a good signal from the BBC Wrotham transmitter, which was constructed in 1951 and began broadcasting VHF/FM on 2 May 1955. His domestic recordings from BBC transmissions (including Proms, premieres, operas, symphonies and chamber music – more than 1500 works in total), date from 1952-1996. Everything was initially recorded on magnetic tape, but up to 1955 particularly important performances were transferred to acetate disc. These fragile discs were never played and have remained in excellent condition, as have the majority of the tapes which make up the bulk of the collection. In 2014 the Lyrita Recorded Edition Trust begun to transfer this priceless archive and has put in place formal agreements with the BBC and the Musicians Union to enable the release of items from it to the public. Here’s the first release:

ARTHUR BENJAMIN (1893-1960): Violin Concerto (Derek Collier [violin], BBC Northern Orchestra; Stanford Robinson. broadcast Sept. 30, 1961), E.J. MOERAN (1894-1950): Violin Concerto (Alfredo Campoli [violin], BBC Symphony Orchestra; Rudolf Schwarz. broad.
