The Worldwide Moeran Database is proud to announce
a CD of brand new audio transfers of Moeran's excellent 78RPM
recordings. Featuring fine performances from the 1940's this
CD includes the taut String Trio, the majestic Symphony in
G Minor and two delightful songs.
The performers - including the Hallé
Orchestra under Leslie Heward, the fine tenor Heddle Nash,
and members of the BBC Salon Orchestra, all bring great life
and vitality to each of these works - indeed, after hearing
the Symphony being recorded Moeran himself was to note "The
Symphony has had such a performance as it never had before."
Using the latest digital technology to transfer
at 24-bit and restore at 32-bit resolutions I have strived
to elicit every nuance present in a fine, near-mint set of
discs. My aim was not to eliminate every last bit of surface
noise, which in my view is usually only to the detriment of
the music, but to allow each performance to sing in its own
Or consider the praise these new recordings
"The "Clean-up" process seems
excellent and I have many other CDs of various composers that
have bought and which do not have such clarity. It was a pleasure
to spend an afternoon listening to the music. More please....."
"What they do wonderfully reveal is
the vigour and commitment of the performances. The short songs
are a delight (we could do with many more!). So, thanks and
congratulations on an excellent achievement." (JWS)
"...to release this with the quality
of sound is a revelation. The energy released in this music
amazed me - both the Trio and the Symphony, contrasted with
some really beautiful music." (JT)
