That appears to have annoyed the company enough to produce the lengthy response.
Well, sometimes you have to irritate in order to get results. Incidentally, the REAM2139 British Orchestral Premieres (4 CD set) is wrongly attributed to the Itter Broadcast legacy. It is, as I am sure readers and contributors to this forum know, a compilation of music all of which I researched for releases by Cameo Classics, and nothing to do with Richard Itter.

Hear, hear! Well done, indeed, Colin - thank you very much for your endeavours. And well done, Mr Antony Smith, for his full, informative and largely encouraging response.

Not that I know of at present.

I think it very likely they don't.

But have you had permission from the Holbrooke family, who hold the copyright, to publish it?
6  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Joseph Holbrooke from CPO on: December 04, 2018, 12:54:56 am
Yes. The really first class guy who wrote the booklet notes for the last 2 Holbrooke disks simply had too much other work and so, in order not to delay the release further, he asked me to write them. It was a pleasure and privilege to do so.

Not necessarily the last one.  I still hope they can be persuaded to do more. We will see. Keep your fingers crossed.

I have just finished writing (and have submitted) the booklet notes to cpo's 3rd CD of orchestral works by Holbrooke, so maybe it will be released early next year.

Probably very true, Greg, but I think a standard email response to the effect perhaps that they regret that they cannot undertake to respond to enquiries about repertoire and that news of forthcoming releases will appear on their website as soon as information is available, would be courteous.

Unfortunately, I suspect the problem may lie with Nimbus who have a poor reputation for courtesy.

The first link is to a post-graduate thesis on Russian Orientalism submitted at McGill University, Montreal, Canada. This too can be worked out from the link - though not immediately obvious, I admit. If you look carefully through the whole of the URLs you can see that both are links to PDFs, which are harmless.

One fervently hopes Chandos will record the other symphonies with Gamba's fine advocacy, perhaps adding some more of the shorter orchestral works or concertos (of which there are not a few) as fillers.
13  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Ruth Gipps symphonies on: September 07, 2018, 05:28:00 pm
The 4th symphony is a masterpiece. I have David Wright to thank for arranging for me to have a photocopy of the full score, which is how I came to know it. Wonderful orchestration and a truly individual voice.

No doubt everything you say is true - and I am not criticising the original German text (I am in no position to do so as my German is rudimentary in the extreme). I am criticising the English translation which ought to be designed for native English readers, not for Germans whose English may be excellent but who, quite naturally, will be translating the English back into German when they read, not always consciously.

There s nothing wrong with your English, Dundonnell. The two examples you give are both equally absurd and un-English, the second, as you rightly say, verging on gibberish - and ungrammatical as well: you can't have a "not only" clause without a balancing "but also" clause, which is absent from the second sentence. And no English person would use a clumsy word like "manifoldness".
