31  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: obscure copeland on: February 19, 2019, 05:34:38 pm
Very interesting, Toby - maybe "Fanfare for the Common Man" is a bit of a clue? I don't suppose anyone ever thought of writing "Fanfare for the CEO of Exxon".

This is very interesting:

I have heard a lot of rip-offs of the fairground music from Petrushka, but none so blatant as this!

When people leave on the artwork from the CD cover, it's pretty obvious.

This morning I was listening to one of the great 9th symphonies ... Haydn's!

Seriously, when did you ever hear this in the concert hall? I have an idea that fun concert would be a first half consisting of Haydn's 9th and Mozart's 9th, and then Beethoven's 9th after the interval.

I listened to this last night and fell asleep. I listened again this afternoon, and I rather understand why it was withdrawn by the composer.

If you want SACD quality Spotify is cryogenics; that's why I still buy (SA)CD's. What resolution does Idago offer? 320kb?

Well, SACD quality is probably wasted on me, used as I am to listening to old LPs. It might be different if I had a top-notch hifi system and didn't have to consider the neighbours, but that it is just a dream!

Just for fun: Dundonnell's last post, machine-translated into Uzbek, reads

Men lavozimga ma'mur sifatida javob bergan a'zolar uchun minnatdorman. Men shuni ayta olamanki, mening hamkorim Latviya (Maris) hozirgi kunda oilaviy muammolarga qaramay, forumga o'zi xohlagancha tashrif buyura olmaydi.  Men mas'uliyatni jiddiy qabul qilyapman (a'zolikni kutishim va, albatta, men uchun talab qilinadi). Bular, umuman, a'zoning a'zoligini himoya qilish va manfaatlarini hisobga olishni o'z ichiga oladi. Biz hammamiz ish mavzusini ochadigan va ish joylarida ishlovchi a'zolarning g'ayrati va sadoqatini qadrlaymiz. Eng asosiy narsa - bunday majburiyatni cheklash yoki cheklash. Biroq, a'zolar nima e'lon qilinishini bilishni istashadi. Bu shuni anglatadiki, ogohlantirishlar ingliz tilida chop etilishi yoki afishada tarjimani taqdim etishi talab etiladi.

I chose Uzbek as I find it is one of the worst languages for machine translation So here it is translated back into English:

I am grateful for the members who have responded to the promotion as an administrator.  I can say that my partner, Maris, can not visit the forum anyway regardless of family problems.  I take the responsibility seriously (waiting for membership and of course, it is necessary for me). These include, in general, the protection and interests of the members of the Council. We value the enthusiasm and commitment of all members of the business community who open the business and work in the workplace. The most important thing is to limit or limit such liability. However, members want to know what is being announced. This means that the warnings must be published in English or in a poster translation.

Well, could be worse.

Yes, I have piles of CDs as well, and I'm trying not to buy more. But streaming all the Lyatoshinsky symphonies off Spotify or Idagio is much better value, IMO.

I was listening to this today, and it is attractive and memorable music. Recommended.

I bought the Karabits "album" (3rd Symphony and Grazhyna) on Apple's Itunes, but the files are corrupted - they have no sound content!  Has anyone else had this issue?!

No, but I wouldn't touch Apple's Itunes with the bargepole I keep specially for not touching things with.


Oh, how come?  Is the quality bad?

If I'm going to BUY something, I want as physical CD that I have for ever. Otherwise I'll use a subscription service.
41  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Stanford's String Quartets on Somm on: January 27, 2019, 10:52:29 pm
Agreed!
42  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: William Schuman premiere recording on: January 27, 2019, 10:51:54 pm
On Spotify already - queued, thanks!
43  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: NEW SIBELIUS CYCLE on: January 27, 2019, 10:49:25 pm
For complete cycles, I'll stick with Vänskä / Lahti, Berglund / Bournemouth and Rozhdestvensky. I don't need another one.

And certainly not this one! I actually have Lorin Maazel conducting the VPO.
44  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: NEW SIBELIUS CYCLE on: January 26, 2019, 02:12:00 pm
I listened to No 1 in this cycle, and it doesn't inspire me to hear any more. Extremely mannered performance, and the sound engineer seems to have hung a mike directly over the timps. More of a "must-not buy".
45  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Hill and Van Hoof on: January 26, 2019, 02:07:53 pm
Hill is a composer I can do without. If his symphonies are reworks of string quartets that would make a lot of sense as to why they sit so poorly on the orchestra.
