Tom Service interviewed Oliver Knussen for Music Matters in 2015. A fascinating introduction to the man esp. his reflections about the psychology of creation

The BBC website makes clear that this is the recording of the Howell Piano concerto as issued commercially by hyperion:

Piano Concerto in D minor

Performer: Danny Driver. Orchestra: BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Conductor: Rebecca Miller.
THE ROMANTIC PIANO CONCERTO 70 - BEACH, CHAMINADE & HOWELL. HYPERION. 001.


https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09tcw0y

Therefore it should be removed immediately from this site I think.

Colin, you have most likely heard of Rodney Newton before because you have the Dutton CD with his orchestration of the Moeran Overture! Wink

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:

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

Penderecki has stated in several interviews that he wants to finish his No. 6. But he has so many plans for the future...

Richard Trunk who joined the Nazi party in 1931 wrote a Cantata "Die Feier der neuen Front" (1932) which was dedicated to Hitler and celebrated the person and his vision.

I see that my formulation is prone to misunderstandings. I should have made clear that I did not want to suggest any positive aspects with the word "vision" in this context. Using inverted comma would have helped. Anyway, it's mere luck that I exist, due to the fact that a courageous person defended my grandfather by giving a false oath to save his life. Otherwise the Nazis would have condemned him to death.

Were there any "Hitler Cantatas"?  I have always wondered about that. Why are Stalin and Lenin "OK" but not Hitler?  I guess because Stalin "won".  Stalin murdered way more people than Hitler.

Richard Trunk who joined the Nazi party in 1931 wrote a Cantata "Die Feier der neuen Front" (1932) which was dedicated to Hitler and celebrated the person and his vision. The texts were written by Baldur von Schirach. It received many performances during the Third Reich period. I read somewhere that Hitler did not accept personal dedications after that. But this does not mean that no such works were written.

The Prokofiev Cantata for the 20th Anniversary of the October Revolution, Op. 74 has been performed two days ago in Weimar. There was a Symposion which put it into context. It will be broadcast 22. September 2017:

I will do so.

I have to make a general remark. Please bear with me. I am not quite well currently and need to take care. Therefore I will probably not make any recordings/uploads in the near future.
For recent and forthcoming Proms recordings follow this blog: http://5against4.com/

Ah, I didn't know that ABC Classic FM has a listen-again service. Thanks!

Too late, it's over. I wasn't able to record myself, therefore I posted the link. Perhaps another member recorded it?

Have a bit patience: it will be broadcast during the current proms again:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/events/ejrhn3
Otherwise, if you can manage to provide details about the earlier broadcast I can upload this for you.
I would need performers details and the date of broadcast just to spare time. Wink
