1  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Lyatoshinsky's 3rd Symphony and Grazhyna on Chandos on: January 26, 2019, 08:58:43 pm
I still wonder about the remark "Sense of adventure" = "No sales".

I would have thought the first recording of a work would have at the very least have compelled all significant libraries worldwide to obtain a copy +curious collectors+ sufficiently well marketed duped general classically interested public.

Would love to know the economics here. How many sales are we talking about vs cost of production etc.?

I also still wonder about the choice of Lyatoshinsky No. 3 (recorded several times) in a shinier new edition vs something new no matter what the merits of the work in question. To make it commercial simply link it to the major figures of the era Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Weinberg etc and the drama of their times. Doesn't that draw people in? My list of composers was very much linked to that.

Hmmh, it seems to me Lyatoshinsky is already served by a number of CD recordings of reasonable quality. A pity they hadn't more sense of adventure here, there are so many other Soviet composers queuing up to have more modern recordings of orchestral music... Peiko, Bunin, Abeliovich, Galynin, Eshpai, Nikolayev, Basner, Levitin, Frid, Petrov, Tishchenko, Slonimsky would be on my list.

Thanks, I found his Piano Concerto and Cello Concerto on YouTube performed at the same concert. Anyone any ideas of their dates of composition?

My apologies if I have inadvertently introduced some malware. I posted these links as I normally would, by cutting and pasting into the internet link parentheses.
Actually, I occasionally had unwelcome advertising windows popping up myself when I clicked on other links on this site. Are we sure it's not the site itself that is corrupted in some way?

NOTE: The original post in this thread has been removed for the reasons outlined below. The forum software does not appear to allow deleting the initial post in a thread nor does it allow changing the name of the poster, so I've added the explanation here:

After consultation with co-moderator Dundonnell, the original links posted in this thread have been removed. With apologies to rkhenderson, the original poster, who I am certain had no idea these links would cause subsequent problems.

For the record, I examined the URLs for the links and they appeared to be perfectly normal YT links with no additional redirects or other other links embedded. I also tested them with no adverse effects.

Suspicious links quoted in subsequent posts in this thread have also been deleted, to avoid the possibility of anyone accidentally clicking on them, resulting in further harm.

The only guess I can hazard to explain the problems some encountered would be that those individuals unknowingly had some sort of malware or other Trojan on their computers which was activated by these links, or some part of them. Again, just a guess, based on sad personal experience in the past, and please be clear I am making no accusations. If anyone has a better explanation, please let me know privately.

Thanks to all for their patience and understanding, and let me again recommend in the strongest possible terms, if you see a link that seems suspicious in any way, DO NOT click on it. Instead, please inform the Administration and we will investigate.

Hi Holger,
 Interesting how many works were composed in memoriam Shostakovich. I like Yuri Levitin's work and recently came across a few more on a rare Melodiya LP. See downloads section.
