Humphrey Searle/ Matyas Seiber; Symphony No. 1, Op.23/ Elegy For Viola & Small Orchestra, Three Fragments From “A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man”.Sir Adrian Boult conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra; London Philharmonic Orchestra (Conducted by the composer); Artist As A Young Man, Peter Pears, speaker; Dorian Singers, Melos Ensemble (Conducted by the composer). This record contains Decca/Londons’s most daring ventures into contemporary orchestral and chamber music in the early stereo era. The Searle is a twelve tone symphonic canvas that is difficult to follow but worth the effort. My favorite is the Elegy for Violla and Small Orchestra. All these works were written in the 1950’s and the performances are superb. Recorded in January, 1960 in Kingsway Hall. Condition; Vinyl, Side One M-, Side Two, EX+, Performance, a 10, Sound and 8.
