Lynch Dennis Brain Collection consists of commercial and unpublished orchestral and solo recordings on audiocassette, compact disc, 33rpm long play and 78rpm records, VHS video cassette, and DVD, all featuring the world renowned British horn player, Dennis Brain (1921-1957). Also included are research notes, sheet music, photographs, and books pertaining to Dennis Brain from the late 1930’s to his death just prior to September 1957. It also includes research notes pertaining to the publication of the 2011 biography, Dennis Brain : a life in music.
