Then, 30 years ago, never did I think that in my lifetime I would hear the complete symphonies of Richard Arnell ... we have come a long way.

Just listened to the Shepherd symphony. I can see why Greg used the word "corny" to describe the music-in places (especially with the dated sound quality) <snip>

How old IS that? It sounds like a wax cylinder recording!

I'm really surprised at the lack of a Jones set, given that his complete string quartets have been issued. I think they have all been broadcast as well.

Also George Antheil's 4th "1942".

include 18 The Alpine (dedicated to the people of Holland) and 21 The Sea (dedicated to the people of Austria).

A humorist. No doubt.  Wink


Oh yes - note that White's piano sonatas are all tiny pieces, whereas his sonatinas are massive works. I have heard some of the sonatas, but I don't know anything about performances of the sonatinas.

Holmboe's Sinfonia Disintegrazzione (1943) is specifically about the war. The first movement the first movement is named Operation Weserübung - the Nazi’s code name for the assault on Norway and Denmark. Unfortunately the only recording is terrible. Throughout the scherzo the percussion plays a bar late due to a copyist's error, which somehow went unnoticed until it was too late (the mind boggles).
