Goehr: Romanza Op24; Symphony in one movement.
Goehr composed his Romanza for and dedicated it to Jacqueline du Pré, who premiered it with her recently-wed husband Daniel Barenboim at the Brighton Festival, in April 1968. Here the product info claims that the performance was given in October 1968 at the royal Festival Hall in London, and I have no way to check. Romanza": the title is deceptive if that it lets you expect a short, minor, romantic work. In this regard, the recording of the Romanza is no worse than the Symphony in One Movement, which was recorded almost two years later. However, that being said, the sound quality of both recordings is not up to present day standards, or even standards set by better recordings from 1968.
Exclusively for Prime members. Alexander Goehr's Symphony in one movement, written in 1970, is a masterpiece of awesome power - but unfortunately you are not likely to hear it on this recording.

Goehr was born in Berlin in 1932, the son of the conductor and composer Walter Goehr, a pupil of Arnold Schoenberg. In his early twenties he emerged as a central figure in the Manchester School of post-war British composers. In 1955–56 he joined Olivier Messiaen's masterclass in Paris. Although in the early sixties Goehr was considered a leader of the avant-garde, his oblique attitude to modernism-and to any movement or school whatsoever-soon became evident. 26; Nonomiya, Op. 27; Paraphrase for clarinet, Op. 28; Symphony in One Movement, Op. 29. 1970: Shadowplay, Op.

Donald Macleod discusses with Goehr his studies in Manchester and Paris. All this week, Donald Macleod is in conversation with Alexander Goehr at the composer's cottage in a village outside Cambridge. Sandy (as he's universally known) was born in Berlin in 1932, the son of the conductor Walter Goehr and pianist and photographer Laelia Goehr. The family moved to England in 1933. By the early sixties he was considered a leader of the avant-garde in the UK, but he never committed himself to any movement or school in particular and throughout his life, Sandy has continued to look over his shoulder at the past as much as he has sought new musical horizons of his own. In 1975 he was appointed Professor of Music at the University of Cambridge, where he remains Emeritus Professor. Performer: Jacqueline du Pré. Performer: Daniel Barenboim.
