Felix Mendelssohn symphonies--with great pleasure!
2  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: 'Midi' performances on: October 21, 2017, 07:52:45 pm
I can only rarely listen to them, occasionally something is good enough to wish it could be performed live, like the piano concertos by Bachianer on YouTube, but especially the amateur efforts with not only the noodling repetition almost make me angry. I wonder how with all the technology they have they can't make a violin sound like a violin? How much of a modern day movie score is real orchestra and how much technology? Some of them can sound quite exciting, even if they slip into banality at times, and I don't mind them, but if these soundtracks are pure technology, I wouldn't mind if that technology could be used to at least introduce orchestral works, would be much more listenable, but I suppose it is down to the true ruler of all things human--money (lack of).

Prokofiev symphonies sort of in order, haven't listened to them for awhile and I wonder why! Loved No. 3 in particular.

Hear cantata by Bram Kortekaas on radio and then followed trail to some more things--young
Dutch composer, very accomplished, on Soundcloud then found Tijmen van Tol, also very enjoyable.

Thank you all, I had known of Bradic, but rediscovering him on YouTube has been great, I was blown away by his Requiem in particular.

7  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: "Tunes for Tyrants" (BBC 4) and "Carmina Burana" on: October 13, 2017, 04:33:29 pm
I enjoy "Carmina Burana" but agree that nothing else of his even begins to interest me, also not sure what I would do, but hope I would help Madame Huber who begged him to intercede with his nazi friends for her Jewish husband Kurt Huber who was supposedly one of Orff's best friends and he refused to do so. But again, what will I do when I am tested? "First they came for the socialists, but I said nothing.....then they came for me..." probably misquoted. Anyway I will still probably like "O, fortuna".
8  Little-known music of all eras / Works on the wireless / Re: Ferruccio Busoni - Concerto for Piano, Orchestra and Chorus in C opus 39 (1904) on: October 13, 2017, 01:01:48 am
ABSOLUTELY AGREE!!!! I have listened to it so much I can almost sing parts of it, and the genius of the section (somewhere in the middle!) with the tarantella flavor is a treat I wait for....

Hear, hear, Amphissa, still not sure why editing tool changes p r e s i d e n t to "practitioner", God knows he needs to practice a lot, just not on us? There are plenty worse words to describe that particular (non)entity.
10  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Music from Uruguay on: October 12, 2017, 05:11:32 am
It takes some digging, but in with popular music there are some orchestral and concerted works from the great Uruguayan composers such as Fabini, Lamarque Pons, Lockhart, et al.
11  Little-known music of all eras / Downloads discussion / Re: Polish Music on: October 09, 2017, 05:40:28 am

12  Little-known music of all eras / Wish lists and requests / Celso Loureiro Chaves--Museu das Coisas Inúteis – Concerto para Violino on: October 09, 2017, 05:16:58 am
Maybe one of obscurest requests I have made, but did anyone happen to record the violin concerto of Celso Loureiro Chaves that was played this weekend on Radio Cultura FM by the Orquestra Sinfonica del Estado do Sao Paolo, and if so would you kindly share it? It was available both Sat and Sun and I was able to miss both chances!!! Thanks, Jim
13  Little-known music of all eras / Downloads discussion / Re: British and Irish Music on: September 26, 2017, 02:31:58 pm
OK, JollyRoger, I am now on my way into Vaughan Williams choral land, thanks for the suggestion, best, Jim

Practitioner? Gosh I didn't know p-r-e-s-i-d-e-n-t was a censorable word, at least before now!
15  Little-known music of all eras / Downloads discussion / Re: British and Irish Music on: September 26, 2017, 12:38:58 am
Thanks for the lead, I must confess I haven't ventured into the magnificent British choral works much, but had always known I wanted to, so this is a new and welcome push in that direction. At the risk of blasphemy I also must confess I really don't like Elgar's symphonies but I like his incidental music and the oratorios a lot, and even (maybe as a philistine blasphemist)--wait for it---Pomp and Circumstance marches!!. As to Parry I have never heard anything of his I didn't like. Always back to the "oldies" for me it seems like, try to keep up with the contemporaries but wind up going back to the 19th and early 20th centuries or Bach for the soul-soothing needs.
