BAX DISCOGRAPHY

Compiled by Graham Parlett

This is a revised and updated version of the discography that first appeared as Appendix 3 in A Catalogue of the Works of Sir Arnold Bax (OUP, 1999). There are three sections:

I. RECORDINGS OF BAX’S MUSIC

II. RECORDINGS OF BAX PLAYING THE PIANO

III. RECORDINGS OF BAX SPEAKING

The first two sections list all commercial recordings known to have been available for purchase together with samplers and free discs given away with magazines. Performances that are due to be recorded or have been recorded recently but not yet issued are marked ‘forthcoming’. The arrangement is alphabetical by title (ignoring articles and numerals) with recordings listed in chronological order of original issue, as far as can be ascertained. Details comprise the names of the performers, the record company or label, the type of carrier (tape cassette, compact disc, etc.), and the record numbers. In addition to standard abbreviations (movt. for movement, sop. for soprano, va. for viola, etc.), the following are used:

BR Blu-ray (for film soundtrack)

CD Compact disc

CD-R Compact disc-recordable (commercial transfer)

DVD Digital versatile disc (for film soundtrack)

EP Extended-play, seven-inch microgroove disc (45 rpm)

FLAC Free Lossless Audio Codec (download)

LD Laser disc (for film soundtrack)

LP Long-play, twelve-inch microgroove disc (331/3 rpm)

LP-8 Long-play, eight-inch microgroove disc (331/3 rpm)

LP-10 Long-play, ten-inch microgroove disc (331/3 rpm)

MD MiniDisc

MP3 Moving Pictures Experts Group audio layer 3 (download)

PR Piano roll (for pianola or player piano)

S&D Streaming and download from the Internet

SD Shellac, twelve-inch disc (78 rpm; also a single 80 rpm disc)

SD-10 Shellac, ten-inch disc (78 rpm)

TC Tape cassette

TP Tape (seven-inch reel to reel)

USB Universal serial bus flash drive (memory stick)

VC Video cassette (for film soundtrack)

Performances recorded at public concerts are indicated by ‘live rec.’, and all recordings are stereophonic unless designated (m) for monaural or, in three instances, (m/st) for mono recordings electronically reprocessed to give a stereo effect (RCA Pickwick/Camden and early 1970s Decca Eclipse labels only). At the time of writing (October 2014), the works that have been commercially recorded most often are the Elegiac Trio (twenty-four versions, including two arrangements), Clarinet Sonata (twenty-two versions), Tintagel (fifteen), and Fantasy Sonata (fourteen). No attempt has been made to indicate current availability.

The Gramophone is on the whole a ghastly invention . . .’

(Arnold Bax writing to May Harrison in 1929.)

II. RECORDINGS OF BAX PLAYING THE PIANO

(1) [Two songs]: In a letter to Harriet Cohen postmarked 10 September 1921, Bax wrote: ‘This afternoon I have to go to some place in the City to play two of my songs with Dorothy [Moulton] into the Gramophone’. No trace of this recording has been found.

(2) Bax: Sonata for viola and piano: Lionel Tertis (va.), Arnold Bax (pf.). Columbia SD: WAX 4949−54 (m) [not issued]; Pearl LP: GEMM 201 (m); CD: GEMM CD 9918 (m); Biddulph CD: BID80216-2 (‘Lionel Tertis: The Complete Columbia Recordings 1924–33’); Heritage CD: HTGCD261 (‘The Art of Lionel Tertis’). Note: Recorded on 27 May 1929, evidently with some trepidation: ‘I have to record my viola sonata with Tertis to-morrow (Oh help!!)’ (from a letter to May Harrison).

(3) Delius: Violin Sonata No. 1: May Harrison (vn.), Arnold Bax (pf.). HMV SD: C 1749−50 (m); Pearl CD: GEMM CD 9436-8 (m); Claremont CD: CD GSE 78-50-47 (m); Symposium CD: Symposium 1140 (m); Harmonia Mundi CD: APR 7017 (m) (‘The Auer Legacy, vol. 3’). Recorded on 1 and 26 June 1929.

(4) Delius: Violin Sonata No. 3: May Harrison (vn.), probably Arnold Bax (pf.). Symposium CD: Symposium 1075 (m). Note: This was a private recording dating from about 1937 found amongst May Harrison’s effects. The labels on the original discs do not give the performers’ names, but on hearing the recording over fifty years later Eric Fenby had no hesitation in identifying the pianist as Bax, who had played the piano part at its first performance, on 6 November 1930 at the Wigmore Hall. If the pianist is not Bax, it may be Charles Lynch.
