1  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Heinrich Sutermeister Orchestral Works from Toccata on: May 13, 2019, 09:03:53 pm
Hello Colin,

my discovery of Sutermeister, initiated by this recent Toccata release (which I haven't heard yet),
came with YouTube posts by Remus Platen (unfortunately he now has withdrawn most of his posts)
of Sutermeister's piano concertos no.1 and 2. I am now going to post these 2 works on Mediafire.
His 1st PC is a major discovery for me, the recording of the 2nd is from a Bavarian broadcast, not
identical to the more recent release on a Musique Suisse CD.

What a shame,

Dundonnell has done his job as administrator extremely well and took real responsibility for that job.
You cannot just dismiss him!

I heavily disagree with Sydney's oversimplifying statement

What gets posted on You Tube is the business of You Tube and not our business.

If a recording is illegally posted on YouTube (even if nobody cares) and this is easily recognizable (by looking at the CD covers displayed there),
we should not hyperlink it in this forum. Still anyone is free to lookup the video on YouTube himself. I would have no problems with mere hints,
e.g. statements like: "Alfano's symphonies are great works (recordings of them can also be found on YouTube)".

Linking to a playlist of some streaming provider would be a different case - there you normally need some kind of payed access to listen to the full work.

Hello Dundonnell,

I am in complete agreement with your statements / your opinion !

You expressed your reservations yesterday (and before), but the first thing I noticed today was a new post
linking to YouTube videos of commercial recordings of Dohnanyi's symphonies !!! (Dohnanyi is not really an unsung
composer, and anyone wishing to explore his works should have no difficulties finding easily available recordings of
his work. A simple search in YouTube would perhaps lead to the above mentioned videos - so no promotion on this
site is necessary. And anyone not aware of Dohnanyi having composed symphonies could lookup worklists such as
the ones you have compiled and generously made available here ....)

I don't know - but the release date given by MDT seems strange, that CD
has been available from cpo for some 12 years now.   Huh?

Dear Maris,

thanks a lot for posting these treasures!

Hello Latvian,

perhaps you could post the links to the FLAC files in the download section for all members interested
(I always prefer FLAC over mp3 :-), but we shouldn't start this discussion again).

If there are serious requests concerning conversion to mp3, I guess there will be enough forum members
who may do that job. (From Thursday on I am away for some 3 weeks without access to my private PC,
otherwise I would have offered that service myself.)

Best regards,

Hello Colin,

there is a serious omission from your list, of which I haven't been able to trace any off-air recording:

    Ronald Stevenson (1928-2015): Violin Concerto "The Gypsy" (1977-79)

9  Little-known music of all eras / Wish lists and requests / R.Sessions - Violin Concerto / T.Spivakovsky, NYPO, L.Bernstein 1959 on: June 02, 2018, 06:24:50 pm

does anyone perhaps have a recording of the broadcast of the following performance:

   R.Sessions - Violin Concerto / T.Spivakovsky, NYPO, L.Bernstein    1959, February 19

(There seems to be a digitized item at the Princeton Music Department, see
 The booklet coming with the new Doremi collection, however, states that Spivakovsky's own tapes are deteriorated too much to be published.)

Many thanks in advance,

Hello shamus,

thanks a lot for that huge treasure! It will take me hours to scan :-)
11  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Upcoming Toccata Classics Releases on: August 10, 2017, 08:41:53 am
Not to mention a little piece by Sorabji...

I am eagerly awaiting its release date! Hopefully that will be soon.
12  Little-known music of all eras / Wish lists and requests / Re: Sir James MacMillan's European Requiem on: August 02, 2017, 09:04:42 pm
Hello Colin,

here is a link to a Proms recording of MacMillan's European Requiem from 5:4

together with program notes and a slightly discouraging review of this work. (After reading that review I haven't yet
downloaded it myself, but at least it should be much better than Julian Anderson's recent piano concerto, which there
has been tagged 'crazily inept bullshit'.)

13  Little-known music of all eras / Wish lists and requests / Re: Szalowski - Szymfonia on: July 13, 2017, 09:41:53 am
After first hearing this symphony sounds rather more French than Polish - but perhaps I am biased by some biographical details concerning Szalowski.

14  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Karl Höller symphonic music on: July 12, 2017, 12:08:15 pm
I hadn't taken notice of this release before - just ordered it from Amazon upon your recommendation.
Thank you, I hope I'll enjoy it as well.
