Robert,

Is there any further information about the Shostakovich - Rozhdestvensky "symphonic fragment" that you uploaded?  Is this fragment related to the putative sixteenth symphony, or is it something else altogether?

Robert Henderson, many thanks for Dialogue and Fugue by Slonimsky.  Anything by Slonimsky is always gratefully received by me!

This will mean nothing to anybody outside Canada, of course, but I cherish the memory of Bob Kerr who used to host a program on CBC FM called "Off the Record".  Knowlegeable and informed about the music, Bob also had an inquisitive side, as reflected by his programming of such (then) novel and unknown composers as Eduard Tubin.  He also had a few unique personal preferences.  For example, although I never figured out the connection, he would always program Nielsen's "Sinfonia Espansive" on (Canadian) Thanksgiving Day.  By contrast, most current CBC classical announcers seem to have no purpose other than to appeal to a younger demographic.  As I said before, I have no idea how that's working for them.

I have witnessed much the same thing in Canada over the past 15 or 20 years or so.  Since the CBC went to a more "mainstream" (for want of a better way of putting it) format this seems to be the required style for classical music hosts.  It isn't that the hosts are themselves uneducated or ill-informed - many of them are in fact themselves actively performing classical musicians.  But the music can't be presented without some sort of contemporary flavored, gossipy, Entertainment Tonight style reference to some supposedly titillating aspect of the composer's life.  I dunno, maybe this is the way to give the younger, contemporary audience exposure to "the Masters", but personally I have my doubts.

The very Easternmost edge of Canada.  Next stop going East is Ireland.

Canadian composer Glenn Buhr (who I generally hold in high regard) composed a tone poem kind of piece called Beren and Luthien which was formerly commercially available on CBC records.  Not The Lord of the Rings exactly, but as one of our AMF fellow members is fond of saying, "relevant".   Grin

I think you should tell Mr Penderecki that his behavior is unacceptable.   Grin

Due to problems with my provider (Starting Februari I had to pay a lot of money if I continued hosting) I ended up with my website.
In the past period, I have reviewed whether and how to realize a new website. This resulted in choosing Wix.
The new website is still under construction and that will be the case for the time being.
URL: https://anton8817.wixsite.com/ovar
I'm curious if this new version is attractive to visitors of my new website.

Onno (at least I presume it's you),

Have you given any thought to resurrecting your Soviet music community?  That would also be very welcome news to many of us!

Delighted to hear this.
14  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Sergei Slonimsky Symphony No. 31 on: July 16, 2017, 01:13:39 am
It (his website) also seems to be frustratingly out of date for a personal website.

Thanks for this Robert!  Always happy to snag another of Slonimsky's symphonies!
