Title: A list of symphonists (after 1800)
Post by: dhibbard on January 02, 2014, 08:16:14 pm
This listing may be useful to some of us.   It purports to be a listing of all symphonists from 1800 onward.
This is from a French site and may or may not be accurate..

there are some spreadsheets in Excel that greatly expands this detail.... I'll post them on Mediafire.   This looks like someones Doctorate Thesis ... is so detailed.

The editor of this extreme long and detailed list (around 16.000 symphonies and alikes) is from our member ttle.

Yes Dhibbard. It has cost many many (etc) hours.
I myself created another list of these symphonies. You knoiw, when we compared our lists, there are literally hundreds on ttle's list I have not, and vice versa.

Such marvellous lists (and I write as a compulsive list-maker myself ;D) fill me with mixed emotions: vast admiration for the industry of the compilers and a sense of sad friustration that I will not live anything like long enough to hear the vast majority of these symphonies.

And what about the listmakers themselves, even when young (and I'm not), you never complete the list.
But the fun of it is when you find yet another composer who happens to write symphonies.
On the other hand it is sad that you in many cases will not ever hear their symphonies at all.

I don't plan anymore, to to bring my own list to the inerner, because there is already ttle's list.  I rather try to help him with information I have/find.
