1  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: More Braga Santos on Naxos on: August 09, 2018, 08:55:09 pm
Great news indeed. Still, there's enough orchestral music left to hope for yet another CD:

Elegia tragica (1943)
Paisajem, symphonic poem Op. 22 (1952)
Canção, Op. 23 (from the film Chaimite) (1955)
Ruinas do Carmo, symphonic poem Op. 33 (1961)
Otonifonias. suite for brass band Op. 50 (1977)

What about the freedom of speech in this Forum?
Freedom of speech has a well defined function: make meaningful contributions to the public debate. Random prejudices and bad taste do not. Ruth Gipps is a very fine composer and her Fourth Symphony nothing less than a masterpiece. You better first form an opinion before you post one.  Cheesy

Eduard Tubin and his re-enternment to Estonia, which actually happened today.
Really? Where's his grave now?

I enjoy this forum but it's a little like communicating with someone on the outer fringes of the Solar System - you post a message and, if you're lucky, get a response several weeks later.
Black hole calling!  Cheesy

8  Little-known music of all eras / Notice of interesting concerts around the world / Re: Rudolf Tobias’s oratorio’s „Jonah“ on: April 08, 2018, 06:50:15 pm
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
