1  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Obscure Soviet Symphonies... on: April 13, 2018, 12:47:46 pm
I remember the Steinberg 4th broadcast because I listened to it and taped it! It must have been in 1994 because at the time I was writing a dissertation on Russian music of that period. It was just before I went to Russia and spent several weeks in archives and libraries. It was part of a series which included A. Krein no.1 (Adrian (?) Leaper cond.), Popov Chamber Symphony and Lyatoshynsky no.1 As a result of this, the Krein was subsequently recorded by Brabbins and the Philarmonia and released by Largo, while Lyatoshynsky is well recorded.
Dear Bobyor
We surely need more from Krein's family their role is underrated

I do so agree about Ruth Gipps Smiley  Unforgiveably I have often omitted her from lists of British symphonists. There are broadcast recordings of the Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4 in our British Music Archive. These date from 1969 and 1983 respectively-No.3 conducted by the composer and No.4 by Sir John Pritchard. IF Richard Itter made off-air recordings then they would make an ideal coupling for Lyrita (73 minutes in total).But, since we don't know what Itter recorded and what he did not or whether his tapes are salvageable and since we are certainly NOT going to be told we could speculate until hell freezes over

There is a performance of Symphony No. 5 in the Archive but it is basically a run-through with the London Repertoire orchestra. I am lucky enough to have the Classico cd of No.2.

Since Gipps was a composer in the broadly RVW tradition one would say that her music should suit Dutton but I can well imagine that Dutton would need a very generous donation to finance new recordings.

Btw: what news of the Holbrooke disc from CPO?? Surely Howard Griffiths himself would rather that his efforts were on our shelves rather than in the CPO vaults? These vaults must now contain as much treasure as do ours here

Dear Dundonnell
IMHO would be a good developement a series devoted to women composer Gipps,Lutyens,Madeleine Dring,Freda Swain ,Howell,Coulthard,Hyde,Mirrie Hill

"Zhdanovian"??

Is that not rather insulting?
Dear Dundonnell
I was speaking of Zhdanov's aestehics (also if he died three years before) not poilitical judgement

Thanks for the link. This is the first batch of new releases but there are more to come

Speaking personally, I welcome the Ina Boyle disc which I shall order with enthusiasm. I shall buy the Stanford but, as very early works, I am not expecting masterpieces. The Elgar puzzles me slightly: the works included are so short and, in most cases, are already on disc. However others will welcome the collection no doubt

I do get the distinct feeling that Dutton is concentrating now more on late 19th and early 20th century music. Apart from Havergal Brian- whose music was heavily funded by the HBS- the company has always preferred the romantic and neo-romantic (Richard Arnell being a case in point). Nothing wrong with that of course but I don't think we can expect much post 1945 from them in the future.
Dear Dundonnell
I will suggest Gipps,Milford,Davie Thorpe,Gundry,Demuth,Robin Orr and extra UK Jean Coulthard , Miriam Hyde and Robert Hughes.
