Daisy Kennedy

I currently only have two original disc recordings by Daisy Kennedy. Thanks to Cheniston Roland of Violinland, I’ve been provided with an interview with her and her Beethoven Romance recording as well as several early solos with piano accompaniment. d’Ambrosio - Canzonetta Kosloff - Melodie...

Susskind’s Messiah (improved transfer); Daisy Kennedy

I’ve now acquired a better source for Susskind’s Pye recording of Handel’s Messiah, which I present here in rather better sound than its previous appearance. I repeat below the full details of this recording: This Pye recording from 1958 is announced on the blue folder it was issued in as...

Hamilton Harty

Hamilton Harty has not been entirely forgotten on CD, but has sadly not received a comprehensive set of reissues. His recording with W H Squire of Elgar’s Cello Concerto is a gramophone classic, and has been reissued occasionally (most recently by Pearl in 1999). It’s a performance which is well...

Walter Susskind conducts Handel’s Messiah

As the Easter weekend approaches, and soon after that, the 250th anniversary of Handel’s death, it seemed to be time for a Messiah recording. This Pye recording from 1958 is announced on the blue folder it was issued in as “Handel’s Messiah - the original manuscript.” This is perhaps misleading -...

Benno Moiseiwitsch and John Drinkwater

Regular visitors to this site will not be surprised to find a recording conducted by Landon Ronald. In this case, for the anniversary year, it’s Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No.1 with Benno Moiseiwitsch. The other item is a spoken word recording - the poet and playwright John Drinkwater reading some...
