1  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Susan Spain-Dunk on: June 05, 2019, 01:12:22 am

I have no problems with other mediafire files. I use mediafire myself and upload/download without issues. So why this one file is problematic? The mediafire error message suggests the file is no longer there. Huh?  And I cannot find a link in the Downloads section.  Huh?

2  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: SOME unrecorded British Piano Concertos, 1934-94 on: June 05, 2019, 12:03:51 am
I was not intending to criticize or even question Dundonnell's original post, and I was satisfied with his reply to my question. He clearly expressed his opinion and offered up his personally chosen list. It's his list. If someone else wants to make a different list, well, do it.

As to whether or not the concertos listed deserve to be commercially recorded, that's a matter of personal opinion. Obviously, Dundonnell believes they do. As to whether labels would consider the investment commercially sound, that's another issue entirely.

I'm not as expert as Dundonnell, of course, but I've heard some of the concertos listed, and I've heard other works by most of the composers. I liked a few of the concertos well enough to listen more than once. Others I disliked intensely and am not happy that Dundonnell reminded me that I wasted hours of my life listening to them.  Undecided

Would I actually buy CDs of any of these concertos? Would anyone other than a completist buy CDs of any of these concertos? Of course, those questions have ZERO relevance to Dundonnell's original post. He would. What is there to argue about?

Link not functional. Maybe can someone add to Downloads?

So, this is just out of curiosity/interest, why not all the unrecorded concertos by composers from Russia, Italy, France, USA, Germany, China, Japan, etc?

I don't have a list. I'm sure it would be long. Just asking.

Placed recording of Spain-Dunk Stonehenge in British file, the program is available to hear again for several weeks, I didn't include the spoken intro, etc.


Why am I unable to find this?

In response to the original post, which specifically asked about orchestral works on LP

Suite for Strings in E major, op. 63 (Boston Symphony Orchestra, Koussevitzky)
Francesca da Rimini (Louisville Orchestra, Mester)

Ah! Okay!
I have been collecting Myaskovsky recordings for many years. The only complete cycle of the symphonies is by Svetlanov. It is good to have his set, because it includes the *only* recordings of Symphonies 3, 4, 13, 14, 18 and 20. However, in many cases, if there are other recordings, Svetlanov leaves much to be desired. For example, his recordings of 5 and 6 are very bad. We are lucky to have other recordings, especially of these two great works.

In addition to the conductors you mention, many other conductors have recorded one or more Myaskovsky symphonies --
Rozhdestvensky
Rabl
Downes
Manolov
Kondrashin
Liss
Ginzberg
Halasz
Stankovsky
Gauk
Mikailov
Sergeyev
Gould
Ormandy
Kovalev

Nikoleyev also conducted a recording of Symphony 21, but others are better.

As for Myaskovsky's other orchestral works, there are many recordings of the violin concerto and cello concerto, of course, but also his many other orchestral works. Svetlanov made the only recording of some of these, but others have been recorded by multiple conductors.

Svetlanov recording are considered Landmark for this composer.Sadly sound quality is sometimes poor and the sound lack of depth (this is a limit also of recent Melodiya Anthology),IMHO this is a more recent reconding and benefit of modern restore,also orchestra seems react to this conductor with some passion.Sadly webpage of this label is offline,so i can't say if it was an integral alternative version of Myaskovsky symphonies.
Best
P.S.
I listened also Dudarova , Ivanov and Yablonsky :IMHO are less convicing

Huh? Dudarova , Ivanov and Yablonsky conduct the 26th? Where? When? What label? If broadcast, please upload.

The 26th conducted by Nikolayev is easy to find. All these others, I never heard of. Only Svetlanov and Nikolayev 26th.

Thomas Schmidt-Kowalski (1949-2013) -- One critic wrote: "manages to bypass 20th-century modernism by doing a 'Sturm und Drang' of his own in 21st-century terms, making himself a 'must' for today's German concert, disc, and radio audiences." I'm not sure he's a "must," but that might be overly effusive.

Four symphonies, one concerto for violin and one for cello, assorted orchestral and chamber works. Completely tonal, romantic style. Easy on the ears, but IMO not magical.

Here is the Cello Concerto

IMHO best recording of this work


The only other recording I'm familiar with is Svetlanov's. Do you know of any other recordings?

12  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Your Discovery of the Year on: January 05, 2018, 08:19:46 pm


I don't see this on Ebay or Amazon. A hint where I might find it?

Love this piece! Jūros Legenda by Juozas Karosas. The original recording from 1965 features Aleksandras Livontas and Olga Šteinbergaitė

Wow! I had never heard of the composer or the musicians. Really quite interesting. You mention a commercial recording. I don't find it on Amazon US or Ebay. Is it available? Variant spellings?

Two years ago, wifey and I took a vacation to the Algarve, Portugal. We loved it. We really considered moving there as our last move. Instead, we finally decided on the "comfort" of remaining in the U.S. Had we known ................. sigh!
