I came late to Delius for much the same reason. Pity.

Didn't know Gurney. Thanks. Will investigate more. Here is the similarly mentally fragile Peter Warlock:

And another fragile mind, and gigantic player, John Ogdon.

Continuing the impromptu series of delicate Englishmen, here's the slow movement of Elgar's Serenade For Strings which, as with the Royal family, aptly demonstrates that much of what one might consider as traditionally or quintessentially British is actually deeply Germanic in origin.

Quite right. In fact Elgar was considered a great composer in Europe before he was in the UK. And a wonderful composer he was. I don't know if you know Sospiri (means "sigh") composed on the eve of WW1. Short, 5-6 mins, and startling beautiful. It has that same pathos you find in Mahler (linking to..LOL).

Hard to beat Bach.

Catalan composer Mompou (who died not so long ago aged nearly 100) is someone I think should be better known.

You can see why Arthur Sullivan loved Schubert in this little youthful gem.

Vivaldi vs. Stravinsky.

500 concertos of one concerto 500 times? Yet I got a disc with 7 concertos four of which I had: Vivaldi: Concerti Con Organo Obligato...Roberto Loreggian (Artist, Performer), Vivaldi (Composer)
It's on a budget Brilliant label. See amazon or other source.

I was looking for Hammond Organ tracks on Youtube and came across this delightfully cheesy piece. Thought it would make a nice fanfare to announce the resurrection of this zombie thread.

Couldn't resist this. Porgy and Bess IS an opera. Verdi would have applauded.
