GEORGE LLOYD (1913-1998): Symphonies No. 4 in B, No. 5 in B Flat and No. 8.
Catalogue Number: 10J062
Description: If you know Lloyd's symphonies through the composer's recordings on Albany made in the late 80s and early 90s, you'll be impressed by the much greater vigor and emotional impact of Downes' first recordings. The engineering is everything audiophile collectors love Lyrita for. If you don't know Lloyd and are a fan of Bax or Alwyn, you can't do better than to discover Lloyd's equally appealing and approachable muse at mid-price here. 3 CDs for the price of 2. Philharmonia Orchestra; Edward Downes. 1982 and 1984 LP releases.
