She is his daughter in law - Gwydion Brooke's widow.

I know that some of Holbrooke's symphonies (and some other compositions) have gone missing. Hopefully,his Fifth symphony is not one of them?!!

The score and parts of the 5th Symphony have survived and are held by Mrs Jean Holbrooke.

I do know how to contact the Holbrooke family, Tobias, and if you will contact me on: gareth41@talktalk.net I will give you Mrs Jean Holbrooke's address. Sounds as if she ought to be getting royalties from the sale of those scores.

What we really need is a modern recording of the wonderful Piano Concerto in G which has never been re-recorded since the ancient Denis Matthews version.

I very much second this. The Piano Concerto is one of Rubbra's finest works IMHO.

Ruth Gipps

Quite. Dundonnell was not criticising El-Khoury's music - merely asking how so much of it came to be recorded. Not everyone knows that a lot of Naxos CDs are self-funded. Don't be so prickly!

They know us Holbrookeians just can't wait!! Grin Let's hope this bodes well for a Volume 4!
Well, Vol. 3 has been recorded - we know that: Symphony No. 3 "Ships"; Variations on "The Girl I Left Behind Me"; Birds of Rhiannon. Hope it is released soon. Nothing positive on Vol. 4 yet (if there is to be one) - but there is talk about a faint possibility of "Queen Mab" and "The Bells". I shall, of course, keep everyone abreast of developments (as far as I am permitted to do so).

I'm so pleased. I thought you might be.

What has happened to Dutton? All has gone very quiet.
10  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Gliere 25 Preludes on: April 16, 2017, 03:50:46 pm
These are lovely pieces. Nice to see them getting an airing again.

You can hear the 4th PC in a R3 broadcast of the Hyperion recording here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08kyl2d

You won't hear Chaminade's "Les Amazones", unless someone re-orchestrates it as the full score and parts are lost. A great loss indeed, IMHO, having read through the vocal score.
13  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Music of the Spheres (Langgaard) from wiki any other "distant" orchestras?? on: March 29, 2017, 05:31:39 am
It depends what is meant by a "distant orchestra". There are lots of works that use an offstage ensemble, always of a smaller and more specific composition than the main orchestra.
14  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Women Composers on: March 23, 2017, 06:58:41 pm
Ruth Gipps is a very important and disgracefully overlooked composer. A first rate talent IMHO.
15  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Max Seeboth: Violin concerto (1939) - prize winning work! on: March 21, 2017, 02:47:04 pm
Does the full score exist?
