I remembered "Brigg Fair" was on old CBS vinyl, but it's the first time I've seen others. Is it the first experience in Japan? Thanks to Sony.
The Perfomances are gorgeous. But the tempo of "On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring" and "In s Summer Garden" are too fast?
Have you listened to? If never, you should lisnten to! It's GREAT! Florida Suite is Original Score (1886 - 1887)? You should know there is a different flavor from Sir Thomas's familiar performance.
