Great news! I always cherished Neeme Järvi's 1995 recording of Des Jonah Sendung; he toured with it around the Baltic Sea in that year, IIRC.

This includes our vast British and Irish Music Archive which is without parallel on the net.
It is, or indeed isn't. A real treasure cove.

I'm listening to the Fourth, now! I'm rather enjoying it, actually. I think I may have been wrong,or even a bit of a cissy ! Grin) to have given up on them,so quickly,last time around?! This music has an elemental power. It sounds very angry when it's loud;and I can certainly see what calyptorhyncus means about his use of brass! Wow! I remember being very much taken by his Ninth symphony,when I first heard it. I remember being so enthusiastic about it, I made my late mother sit all the way through it!! Roll Eyes Grin

I've got to say;I love the way he builds his his music up. There's a feeling of orchestral power,there. Big blocks of sound,with the brass,literally,blazing.The photo's on the front do seem apt. Cosmic!! I think I've got to side with the Simpson admirers,here. I think I'm really feeling excited about what I'm hearing!!
Explains it all.  Grin

I am not sure that Zhdanov had any aesthetic judgment that was not entirely based on political postures.
Zhdanov didn't, probably, but Khrennikov certainly had. Later in his life he was known for his support of younger Soviet composers.

Swiss composer, Volkmar Andreae (1879-1962) Symphony in C Op. 31 (1919); a masterpiece, 'discovered' thanks to Kyjo.

Orthel, Koetsier, Escher.
Absolutely, all three of them. And also Van Otterloo (his restored Second Symphony proved a revelation).
14  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: "Recent" Toccata Releases on: January 26, 2018, 06:46:35 pm
BTW, have you seen this:

Orchestral Music, Volume One
Symphony No. 4 in E flat, Op. 54
Divertimento in D, Op. 58
Variations on a Scottish Theme, Op. 72
Symphony No. 8, Op. 117
Liepāja Symphony Orchestra
John Gibbons, conductor
TOCC 0480

Still in the pipeline though...
That’s fantastic news!
15  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: A Symphonies Game on: January 16, 2018, 07:41:12 pm
I just discovered this forum, so here goes:
Only - Von Hausegger (disregarding Barbarossa, which really should be termed a symphony as well. But allow me this loophole please).

1 - Furtwängler or
2 - Weingartner
3 - Langgaard
4 - Braga Santos
5 - Sibelius (the 1915 version)
6 - Tournemire
7 - Hamerik
8 - Rautavaara
9 - Von Klenau
10 - None
11 - Raff
Great cycle! We seem to be sharing an admiration for the Hausegger, Braga Santos, Tournemire, and perhaps Klenau 9 (just bought it, not sure yet). As for a No. 10: why not Shostakovich, Holmboe, Tubin, Rubbra, Badings, BrianRoll Eyes Cheesy
