Thanks so much for the Goedicke symphony, I'd been looking for the piece for ages! It's
not quite as I expected, his musical style seems to have evolved from the pre-1900 pieces that
I have.

I have the Requiem on LP and CD... the LP has a warmth to it that you don't get on the CD.

OK here is Kokha  or Koha .  the spelling on the record is Jann Kokha   but I see on EMIC its Koha.

Here is  Reimann:
 
Villem Reimann

March 19, 1906 Pärnu – April 8, 1992 Tallinn
Member of the Estonian Composers' Union since 1944

Villem Reimann was a composer and a pedagogue. His acquaintance with music began with studying harmonica and concertina. He graduated from gymnasium in Pärnu and studied piano in Tallinn Conservatory from 1925 to 1927 with Margarethe Finck. Reimann worked as a pianist in cafe and restaurant ensembles and in cinemas. He graduated from Tallinn Conservatory in composition with Artur Kapp in 1933 and in piano with Artur Lemba in 1936. In 1937–1938 he complemented his studies in Budapest at Franz Liszt Academy of Music in composition with Zoltán Kodály, chamber music with Leo Wiener and conducting with Ernő Unger. Reimann was the music consultant in Studio of Cinemas in 1940–1941 and teacher of music theory subjects and chamber music in Estonian Academy of Music from 1942–1992.

Majority of his work consists of chamber and film music. His early works can be described as romantic and simplistic (suite Vilsandi), later works show more the modern side including twelve-tone technique (Concerto for Violin and Chamber Orchestra). His vocal music, especially choral works inherit a colorful harmony and creative images.

Reimann has received an honorary title of the Estonian SSR Honoured Worker in Arts (1955), the SSR State Prize (1951) and Soviet Estonia Award (1949).

After listening yesterday to Tubin's 1946 Fifth Symphony my pleasure was so great that I looked him up in Grove's Dictionary to seek an explanation. And sure enough, I find that "Tubin's first three symphonies . . . are marked by a rhythmically propulsive and ecstatic orchestral style that reflects Tubin's interest in Skryabin." [sic - he was always spelled "Scryabine" in England in his lifetime] Anyway, that exactly describes what I heard in the Fifth too. They go on to say that "from the beginning he displayed an instinctive and impeccable grasp of polyphony and large-scale structures. . . . His harmonic language ranges from free chromaticism to mild polytonality: he professed a distaste for Schönbergian atonality [sic] and twelve-note techniques and an inclination towards the strict voice-leading rules of the 'Palestrina style.'"

There are eleven Tubin symphonies altogether, and one late String Quartet from 1979 (which I have not heard).

He uses a lot of ostinato, but unlike the banal efforts of some of his contemporaries - and of some of our contemporaries for that matter - his ostinato is always set in a suitably contrasting context - in other words it is meaningful.

Even some of Bach's pedal points can be regarded as early forms of ostinato really, I suppose. . . .
