...and at the same time it looks as though De Toonzaal in 's Hertogenbosch may be forced to close...
Thanks to the self-rightous lawyers!!

Not sure it is still in print.
3  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Imants Kalnins Symphonies Nos. 5 & 7, Oboe Concerto, Santa Cruz on: September 30, 2018, 04:10:10 am
Actually, all of Kalnins' symphonies, as well as the other works in this new set, are available in our downloads section. The version of the Fifth Symphony is Sinaisky's recording on Melodiya, mentioned in this discussion.

My uploads are at: The first three symphonies were uploaded by another forum member. Just go to the Downloads folder, then to the Latvian Music subfolder.
Sorry, I could not locate Kalnin's 4th and 6th symphonies here, can you help?
Also there are other composers with the last name of Kalnins in the download section. Were they all family?
4  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Links to videos of compositions by little-known composers on: September 30, 2018, 03:55:30 am
Personally I would have no objection. All forms of commercialism - buying and selling - seem wrong to me; not activities to be supported. So please feel free to do whatever you yourself feel right. The more (high quality) links you post the merrier!
That's all very well, but whatever gets uploaded to YouTube or wherever else cannot be so without such commercialism, since it all costs money. Furthermore, far too many people upload copyright material without first requesting the permission even of the artists, record companies, broadcasters &c., let alone the copyright owners, which is downright rude as well as disadvantageous to all those who have an interest in such material.

I've had to use YouTube's takedown facility more times than I can remember. I detest having to do it because in one sense it flies in the face of my rôle to promote certaion music, but there's a simple answer and that is to try to encourage such uploaders only to upload extracts under the equivalent to the "fair use" policy applicable to literary writings; this not only avoids copyright infringements but also can encourage those who listen to those extracts to buy the recordings (in the case of those which are commercially available).
5  Little-known music of all eras / Books about composers and their music / Re: Surprised by Beauty on: July 19, 2018, 09:48:14 am
I fail to see why Hibdon is included in any book about modern music of any quality.
6  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Janis Ķepītis on: July 19, 2018, 09:31:40 am
I have a piano concerto by this latvian master but do not know the performers or movements.
Can anyone help here?

Thanks so much for that information..for me it is another "missing tooth". Can we prevail on the membership to provide it?
8  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Conservative West-Germans Composers 1945-1989 on: February 21, 2018, 04:38:40 am
I simply thought that Toby was looking for some German composers who wrote in a more conservative idiom in order to explore their music

Do you think that "some German composers who wrote in a more conservative idiom" might have done so because the political structures who ruled their environment encouraged and required them to do so?

Here we go again..
9  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / McCabe Symphony no. 6 on: November 06, 2017, 05:58:41 am
I cannot seem to find much about McCabe Symphony no.6. Does anyone know of it?

13  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Babcock,,David - Symphony No. 5 Op. 58 (2001) on: October 01, 2017, 04:58:01 am
Also studied with Francis Burt ...

Sorry to be a bother, but don't know much Burt and Goer? Are they notable?

A good opportunity to learn abou Alexander Goehr offers the recent BBC Composer of the Week portrait:

Thanks for Goer lead, I have some of his music..Burt is still unknown.

I remember Huw Watkins telling an anecdote about Goehr, who was his teacher: "You need not apologise for your piece being in C major!"  Grin

I've heard Goleminov a few times but must take time to savor his music.I do have some. Any suggestions as to your favorite pieces would be most welcome.

Variations on a Theme by Dobrai Christov. I will try and post it here next week with a few other pieces that are not in our archive.
Thanks..looking forward to some fine music!!
BTW, please check the YT posts for Goleminov symphonies 2 and 3.,6188.0.html,6187.0.html
