1  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Unfamiliar Lyrita on: February 15, 2019, 04:42:35 pm
I listened to a few things on YouTube.  They sounded a lot like John Ireland.

"Maximum opportunity" meaning exactly what?

3  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Lyatoshinsky's 3rd Symphony and Grazhyna on Chandos on: January 09, 2019, 07:24:38 pm
I have all the symphonies and "Grazhyna" in the Marco Polo set. I would not normally duplicate such repertoire. Should I??

Let's be analytical (rather than emotional) about this decision.

To start with, estimate for me when you last listened to one (or more) of that Marco Polo set?

Not that he said so, but I took Dave's initial post to imply he had possession of this recording ("I have located..."), and had also heard it ("a very bad recording...").

Christopher's "please do upload!!" appeal makes obvious he believed the same.

We'll mask our disappointment it is merely an artifact.

How words can deceive.

Large collection of downloadable recordings of music by Panufnik, Gorecki and Lutoslawski here:
https://ninateka.pl/kolekcje/en/three-composers

Many pieces unavailable elsewhere.

Wow.  "Large" is right.  There's no Panufnik, however.  You obviously meant Penderecki.

Is it neglected?  What's your criteria for that?
7  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Hill and Van Hoof on: November 28, 2018, 02:13:07 am
I think most (if not all) of his Symphonies are adaptations of String Quartets.

"Sense of adventure" = "No sales".
9  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Hill and Van Hoof on: November 27, 2018, 04:48:32 pm
There's a radio broadcast recording of Hill's Symphony No.1 in the "Australian Music" section of the Download Archive on the Unsung Composers Website (provided by Maris).  You probably have it but don't know Shocked.

Trifles.  What a disappointment given all the substantial works by other composers they could have chosen.

Commercial enterprises (even small ones) just cannot be expected to carry on personal communications with their customer base IMO, nor do I believe there's likely any intentional secrecy or even laxness in Lyrita not making known (in an ongoing fashion) when previously publicized projects and prospective reissues will finally come to fruition in publicly available recordings.  The reality is that they themselves may not even know, - what with juggling financing constraints, legal tangles, and possibly a host of other technical and administrative details germane to the end product in view.  Is this incompetence and/or insensitivity on their part, or rather just the nature of the business they traffic in?

12  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Lyrita? on: November 25, 2018, 08:32:00 pm
One might conclude Colin will refuse purchase of future desirable Lyrita issues as punishment for their bad form in not responding (or not responding appropriately) to customer inquiries.

Right.

Lyrita's (and other labels) apparent indifference (if that's what it is) to keeping their customer base well-informed about plans and release schedules may be annoying, but it's not going to materially impact their business (let alone contribute to any collapse).
13  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Rauf Gadzhiev's Violin Concerto on: November 21, 2018, 06:59:02 pm
You make it sound as if there's many Azeri Violin Concerti "out there" and available to be heard.  What are some of the other good ones?
14  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's Violin Concerto No.3 on: November 02, 2018, 03:41:46 am

I have never been a fan of chamber or instrumental music, much preferring the sound of an orchestra or orchestra and chorus.

Nonetheless, during some period of your listening career did you at least familiarize yourself with many of the recognized classics in these areas (chamber and instrumental music)?

Or is all this utterly dark territory for you, - and Beethoven's Late Quartets, Franck's Violin Sonata, or Brahms's Clarinet Quintet (among the myriad examples one could offer) only
works you might now and then have seen reference too, but never actually heard?

It's not quite so oddly exclusionary as ViolinConcerto's (Tobias) even more narrowly drawn enthusiasm, - but still peculiar such a grand and boundless territory would so easily be lopped
off from your musical culture and exposure.

Without you as chief poster (and the responses from others that stimulates) there's little for you to do as chief Administrator (the Sydney Grew affair aside).
