4  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Harlap Clarinet Concerto on: June 22, 2018, 10:10:34 am
This is a rather disappointingly speedy example of the sort of post to which members were taking exception yesterday and which I advised against.

The piece of music in question may be on You Tube-which is a "reputable" source but there is no indication of who Aharon Harlap is, his country of originin, his date of birth/death(I have certainly never heard of him) or why his Clarinet Concerto may be of interest to other members.

Members are simply being invited to click on the link to find out for themselves. Some members might find that an intriguing prospect, others will find the work of no interest and will feel their time wasted.

To reduce the possibility of the latter it would be much more helpful to post a simple, short sentence giving some explanation of why the link is being posted. Please try to provide some such explanation in future. It does NOT require to be a lengthy essay but some guidance would be appreciated by those who raised this issue yesterday.

Thank you for your future co-operation Smiley

Is this in anyway an authoritative source?  The CIA, if you believe everything, is responsible for meteors, volcanos, climate change, AIDS, population growth, population decline,.... or is it maybe just rubbish?

Hardly.  'Slipped Disc' is primarily pile of factless gossip and twaddle, with specific and persistent interests in publishing lies about Valery Gergiev, Anna Netrebko, and other Russian performers. The author of the 'Slipped Disc' website has lost several legal battles, in cases where he printed complete lies about record labels - and was forced to pay punitive damages. The man is a complete charlatan, with no knowledge of classical music whatsoever.

IMHO less talented than Svetlanov .However a prominent conductor and essential for XX Century russian repertoire.
Talented in different ways. Svetlanov was a fine pianist and recorded the Medtner violin and piano sonatas whose parts are anything but "accompaniments"; he also gave one of the finest performances of Elgar's Second Symphony that it's ever been my good fortune to hear.
Dear Ahinton
Also Rozhdestvensky was a pianist.IMHO  Ministry of Culture Orchestra was not at height of State Symphony and Rozhdestvensky was more oriented towards modernists composers.However i don't  want deny his skills
