1  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Open Reel Channel on: June 21, 2017, 02:47:07 pm
Ah, well done, Mr. Brian - think you're spot-on there !
2  Little-known music of all eras / Broadcast videos / Re: Anton Webern - Concerto opus 24 (1934) on: June 19, 2017, 05:03:57 pm
Thanks - this is music that, even with my new 'give everything a chance' attitude, really defeats me. Chance for someone(reasonably briefly !) to explain why we should value it !
3  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Open Reel Channel on: June 19, 2017, 04:50:24 pm
Ah, promising idea, Mr. Northern, but no 'link' that I can see !?
4  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Gorecki - Oratorio 'Sanctus Adalbertus' on: June 19, 2017, 04:49:16 pm
Not sure anyone knew much about it until his son went through his effects. This 2015 performance appears to be the premiere, anyway.
Film music...Mmm, not particularly, I think. Reputation established forever by Symphony 3, movement 2, but prior to that believe he was just yet another avant-garde composer.

Unless, of course, colleagues know differently ?!
5  Little-known music of all eras / Broadcast videos / Re: Sir Arnold Bax - Tintagel (1919) on: June 18, 2017, 03:52:48 pm
Ah, a real favourite ! It was Bax, Alwyn, Bantock and the like who first got me looking beyond the 'normal' repertoire maybe 10 years ago. Will never tire of them.
6  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Gorecki - Oratorio 'Sanctus Adalbertus' on: June 17, 2017, 04:58:11 pm
OK - I've cheated; this isn't on You Tube,& a quick scout around doesn't show it coming up much at all, so wondered whether this premiere performance might be of interest:
sorry if I'm way behind as usual, and everyone knows it backwards.

7  Little-known music of all eras / World-wide wireless / Re: Stations indexed by language on: June 16, 2017, 04:49:20 pm
Mr. Sydney - may I recommend the WQXR station out of New York, including (of some slight interest to me at least !) its Q2 modern classical offshoot.
8  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Jerusalem Symphony on: June 16, 2017, 10:07:51 am
Thanks - that link produces another for his website : http://www.jmbenjamin.org/ENG/index.html

Really an interesting character ! Very happy to have been 'introduced', thanks !

Mr. Toby - thanks ! Sounds perfectly pleasant.

Other colleagues...help appreciated ! This states on YT that it's a 'real' orchestra complemented by a 'virtual' one. A) Does that sound right to you - I'm not musical enough to tell !
B) If so, would you catalogue it as 'orchestra + electronics'....or what ?
10  About music in general / The listener / Re: What are you listening to today? on: June 13, 2017, 02:13:10 pm
Surprising - to me at least - how much Respighi produced beyond the 'obvious'...& it's all lovely stuff.
 See where you're going with Barber Capricorn & De Falla harpsichord - but not a huge fan of the 'Ebony', I'm afraid. Maybe the YT commentator who suggests Stravinsky didn't fully understand the jazz idiom is onto something; it does seem a bit of a mess to me.
Dunno - I'm no expert !

Love the harpsichord, so a few pieces involving that tonight sounds promising:
Dutilleux -Les Citations for harpsichord, oboe, double bass & percussion
Aperghis - Le Reste du Temps for cello, harpsichord & ensemble
Henze - Apollo & Hyazinthus for soprano, harpsichord & ensemble
Tabakova - Suite in Old Style for viola, harpsichord & strings
McCabe - Concertante for harpsichord & chamber orchestra
Szymanski - Partita 3 for amplified harpsichord & orchestra

Respighi - wonderful composer ! Didn't have the Concerto a Cinque...rectified that, thanks !

May stick to Italy for tonight's music - the 3 Ps...Perosi, Petrassi, Pizzetti; + 1 more..Procaccini, then some Ghedini & Rendine, plus to finish the marvellous Malipiero.
Sure there's a bottle of verdicchio to go with that !
12  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Grant Grigorian Concerto on: June 08, 2017, 02:15:22 pm
Nice find, thanks !
13  About music in general / The listener / Re: What are you listening to today? on: June 07, 2017, 03:20:38 pm
Well, searching for some inspiration for an evening's listening, so decided to have a concert by 'Nikolai'...or equivalent.

Nikolai Tchaikin - Bayan Concerto
Nicholas Maw - Ghost Dances
Nico Muhly - Cello Concerto
Nicolas Flagello - Dante's Farewell
Nicolas Bacri - Concerto Luminoso 'L'Ete'
Nikolai Sidelnikov - Cantata 'Sacred Conversations'
14  Little-known music of all eras / Broadcast videos / Re: Enrique Llácer Soler - Concerto for Orchestra opus 25 on: June 03, 2017, 12:09:14 pm
Ah, some expert research - certainly a name that defeated me; well done indeed !
15  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: The 100th Anniversary of Lūcija Garūta on: May 30, 2017, 01:31:53 pm

Nice link on his site to a recent YT video of Arturs Maskats Piano Concerto... completed this year, it appears.
