1  Little-known music of all eras / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Re: Otto Ketting: Symphony No. 1. BBC Welsh National Orchestra. Conductor: Jac van S on: February 09, 2014, 08:44:18 am
Yup, I know that user well. I am a connoisseur of Dutch music and refer back to that user quite often.
2  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: The Complete Symphonies of Harald Genzmer(1909-2007) from CPO ! on: February 06, 2014, 07:58:18 am
Genzmer's music is entertaining, Hindemithian music. He was also a composer that wrote for a curious instrument, the trautonium (an early electronic instrument  sort of like the ondes martenot). Hindemith also wrote a bit for it, but Genzmer wrote a bit more. I'll keep an eye out for that new CPO release.

I quite like Ketting's music. I hope they put out more of it. I heard this on the BBC before, and it's good to hear it again.

These are not young Finns, but if you want to hear great modern orchestral Finnish music by some more off the beaten path composers, get this disk:

Very colorful, approachable music. It should appeal to most people here.
5  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Aho Symphony 15 on BIS on: November 19, 2013, 10:13:24 pm
Already have this! I've heard Minea and the 15th before, but the Double Bass Concerto was a nice revelation. Concertos for that instrument are a challenge, but Aho once again proves he can write for any instrument (see also the concertos for contrabassoon and tuba, other unwieldy bass instruments). Minea and the 15th are performed even better than in those live recordings that are available here (perhaps to be expected from a studio recording). All in all, another excellent release in their Aho series.
6  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Jack Gallagher (1947-): Symphony no. 2 etc. from Naxos (to be released 2014) on: November 08, 2013, 06:27:47 am
I just got that new McTee recording. I have heard her Double Play before. Colorful, textured music, but nothing to write home about. She probably has the inside track to getting her music recorded because she is married to Leonard Slatkin. I'll listen to the disk and give her a fair shot, though. The other stuff might be better!

Also, yes, I agree, the American symphonists need some new recordings! I'd love to see a complete Persichetti cycle myself. The Harbisons need commercial recordings, though (all 6 should be available online in broadcast form). Gallagher hasn't exactly done it for me with his first disk, but I need to listen to it again.

8  Little-known music of all eras / Notice of interesting concerts around the world / Re: Sorabji's 6th Piano Symphony on: October 22, 2013, 03:42:40 am
Definitely recorded, maybe broadcast by Concertzender.

Great! I love that site.
9  Little-known music of all eras / Notice of interesting concerts around the world / Re: Sorabji's 6th Piano Symphony on: October 18, 2013, 10:24:56 pm
Any chance that these will be recorded and/or broadcasted?
10  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: André Tchaikowsky (1935–1982): Music for Piano, Vol. 1 (includes PC) on: October 03, 2013, 07:32:40 am
You can also hear his 2nd Piano Concerto here:
André Tchaikowsky: Pianokonsert nr 2 op. 4.
Konsert med Wiens symfoniorkester,Solist: Maciej Grzybowski, piano. Dirigent: Paul Daniel.
http://sverigesradio.se/sida/gruppsida.aspx?programid=4427&grupp=18793&artikel=5657730

That's the same recording as the one I provided in my link above, and it's the same concerto as the one on the Toccata Classics CD. There is an earlier one, yes, but as far as I know, the only recording it has is on André Tchaikowsky's website. You can hear it here:

11  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: André Tchaikowsky (1935–1982): Music for Piano, Vol. 1 (includes PC) on: September 28, 2013, 07:20:51 pm
There is a recording of the piano concerto with the same performers on André Tchaikowsky's website here: http://andretchaikowsky.com/composer/piano_concerto.htm

I have no idea if this is the same performance on CD. It is rather new, from July of this year.

André Tchaikowsky is a pretty interesting composer from the little I've heard. Rather strident style with lots of rhythmic complexity, but still enjoyable stuff. I'll keep my eyes out for this one, for sure. He has to be the only composer that allowed his skull to be used in productions of Hamlet after his death. Just a little interesting tidbit!
13  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Coming this fall from Alba on: September 21, 2013, 07:58:24 pm
Linkola writes some nice, cute (no other way to put it) music that should appeal to a lot of people. A lot of it is quite jazzy from the limited amount that I have heard. I'll be checking out these disks. Alba has had some great releases lately.

Here is Linkola's Second Piano Concerto, played by jazz pianist Iiro Rantala (interesting selection for a soloist here):

14  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Magnus Lindberg (1958-): VC, "Jubilees" and "Souvenir" from Ondine on: August 16, 2013, 12:30:54 am
I've heard bits of Jubilees and I once heard Souvenirs on a BBC broadcast with Matthias Pintscher conducting (too bad it was low sound quality). Jubilees is a harder-edged piece that is more like Lindberg of the 90s. Very textural, not very tonal, but still very engaging. Souvenir is a great work for chamber orchestra that is like a miniature concerto for orchestra. Lots of drama and romanticism, but still very Lindberg. Now, his newest pieces Era and Red House need to be recorded, particularly the latter, which is probably my favorite Lindberg work of the past 10 years. Too bad the performance I heard was pretty sloppy (as can be expected from the world premiere of a very difficult work). Needless to say, I'm extremely excited for any new Lindberg!
15  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: New from Alba on: August 08, 2013, 03:59:39 pm
Sounds great! Jukka Tiensuu is a composer I have long admired for his colorful orchestration. I can't wait to hear what he offers in Sulci, along with the other 4 works on this disk.
