Very much in the character of what D-V has been doing for their own recordings - lots of premieres of minor/incomplete works by Elgar and RVW and premieres of works by forgotten composers. I'm not at all familiar but will keep an open mind and probably throw some into my next order.

Edit to add: reading about Walter Braunfels and I'm intrigued - a lot of wonderful composers of Jewish descent were purposely neglected under the Nazis, it seems like he may be a worthy discovery.

Gosh darn it ubertrout; I was hoping you'd have recommendations for these latest releases.
 
So this is the big May batch then, these four and Tomita!

Ok, at least I can get my order together now with the other previous things I need.

Or could there be another surprise or three coming?
 
Not to worry, come May, the WOW aka MJD will blow the panties off this ol’ group of Hard Chargin’ Party Animals🤠
The wow or the MJD, is that these four classical titles you mean? I might have missed the inside joke.

I'm listening to Braunfel's "Fantastical Apparitions on a Theme by Hector Berlioz" and I like it! Very late-romantic, very much tonal and interesting, sort of halfway between Mahler and Shostakovich. Will probably try some of the Dutton recordings.

Dutton Epoch new releases.
Dutton Epoch’s new release features a variety of British and European classical music, ranging from the baroque era to the 20th century.

Included are premiere recordings of Vaughan Williams’s incidental music for the BBC Radio production of Shakespeare’s Richard II; Thomas Arne’s 1742 setting of William Congreve’s masque libretto The Judgment of Paris; and conductor Martin Yates’s brilliant symphonic suite based on Elgar’s sketches for the unfinished opera The Spanish Lady. Another interpretation, albeit of a rather different kind, is found in synthesizer pioneer Tomita’s electronic reimagining of Stravinsky’s The Firebird.

Additionally, our survey of the music of German composer Walter Braunfels closes with Volume 4, which includes three bracing orchestral works written during the autumn of his life: the Orchester-Suite (1933-36), the Hebridentänzefor piano and orchestra (1950-51), and the Sinfonia Concertante for violin, viola, two horns and string orchestra (1947-48).
