1  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Previously unreleased Bernard Herrmann film score now available in re-recording on: December 12, 2018, 11:30:37 pm



A minor score but by one of the greatest composers of film music.

2  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Eugene Goossens on Lyrita on: November 05, 2018, 09:31:11 pm


We could now do with a cd recording of the Phantasy Concerto for Violin and orchestra: one of the very few violin concertos of its kind not so far recorded.


Top of my wishlist of CDs of Violin Concertos along with Stanley Bate.

What appears to be the premiere of the Phantasy Concerto Op.63 in 1960, twelve years after it was composed in 1948, can be heard on YouTube in poor sound.  See:

It would be great if Lyrita had a better sounding recording of this performance although it would be preferable to hear it in modern digital sound.

I have long wanted to hear this (since the 1970s when I learned he had composed three Violin Concertos), but am disappointed to learn it is a chamber work.  Angry Sad Shocked Huh Undecided Lips sealed

Would it work as a Concerto if orchestrated?

Have just listened to short extracts on iTunes.  Answering my own question, it sounds as if it might work as a Concerto if orchestrated.  In such a format I would buy it but not as a chamber work.

5  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Lost Alfred Hitchcock film score(s) may be reconstructed via Kickstarter on: September 26, 2018, 03:30:46 pm

This Kickstarter project exceeded its target and the recording will follow in due course. The cost of my token support was just over Ł29. As an investment to increase the prospect of a recording of something which may interest me in the future, for me this is an acceptable cost for a CD that I am minimally interested in.

I purchased the VW CD.  IMO it is filled with enjoyable if not compelling music with several folk songs making appearances in the majority of the works.. A worthwhile purchase that is likely to be enjoyed by anyone who loves VW’s music.  Cheesy Grin

Arrived yesterday in the post.  A splendid CD of attractive and memorable music! Vintage Braga Santos so far as the lyrical music is concerned.  The Viola Concerto excepted, for me the Piano Concerto, with its three disparate movements, is more enjoyable than his other concertos.  The largely dissonant first and second movements are followed by a catchy and delightful third movement which brings the consonant and dissonant sides of the composer harmoniously together.  Cheesy Grin Wink Smiley

I hadn’t previously noticed this Jorge Mester conducted recording of the above-mentioned work, posted in 2014, as an alternative to the version recorded by Bernstein.

Thanks for the foregoing report on the VW CD.  On the basis of what is said, I will most probably buy the CD.

I would also add Payne's realization of Elgar's 3rd. Not a masterpiece on the level of Bruckner 9 or Mahler 10, but a work I've come to like very much, nonetheless.

Me too.  I also greatly enjoyed Anthony Payne’s book Elgar’s Third Symphony: The Story of the Reconstruction and the NMC CD.  Robert Walker’s Piano Concerto on Elgar’s fragments, released by Dutton, gives us a context to hear Elgar’s sketches and what might have been. 

I might pick up the Dutton VW disc.  I am curious about the Christmas Overture (1934). I greatly enjoy the Fantasia on Christmas Carols and On Christmas Night - basically because I like a Christmas music and VW arranges it so well - and I am guessing we are looking at an orchestration of some carols.  It would be great if Dutton posted extracts of their CDs to listen to which might remove hesitation on my part in picking up any of the latest batch.

Many famous scores were thrown away after the recording.....and no one thought these would be cherished in the future.

How wrong they were!

Happily, the original soundtracks for many of the scores of Rózsa, the majority of Herrmann’s scores and several Korngold scores have survived even if the musical scores themselves have not. Smiley Wink Cheesy Grin

For what it is worth, this Intrada project is receiving a very mixed response on the Film Score Monthly General Discussion forum.

There a several, so far, who view Tiomkin's score as unworthy of a Kickstarter project when compared to other possibilities.

I have made a pledge to purchase the CD.  Including shipping I will be charged Ł30 if the target is reached, a small investment if this eventually leads to, say a, Rozsa score being reconstructed. So far a number are doing what I am doing, basically making a token gesture to support Intrada rather than the composer or music. If people like me prove to be the majority, I presume the project is unlikely to succeed.  That would be a pity.
