1  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Unknown Martinu on: January 10, 2018, 09:01:08 am
Nice disk. Vanishing Midnight is really a wonderful romantic piece with impressionistic influences, worth hearing. The other two pieces are not on that level, actually redundant and not relevant.  Roll Eyes

pah - previous releases of his orchestral works under Hickox and dePreist attest, that his music is emotionless and uninteresting - definitely not relevant !

i don't think so, Thomsons great attention to details let him lose sight of the entire structures of the works Sad

I have three versions of the Bax Symphony No.2 (Bryden Thomson, David lloy-Jones and Myer Fredman). I do not really think that I need a fourth.

However, depending on the quality of the performance by Goossens this news may please Baxians Smiley

you forgot the best: Vernon Handley Smiley

you call somebody who studied music and is a lover of classical recordings . . . did you ever write wikipedia profiles about composers, did you ever write reviews about classical releases for music magazins? i am active in several well-known music forums, and i'm a consultant of the Bonner Beethoven Orchestra, ...
14  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Gardner and Veale from Dutton on: August 28, 2016, 10:44:21 am
after hearing the disk, i am little dissapointed, specially from the Veale symphony. also the new recording of the second Brian symphony isn't much butter than the marco Polo one. good that i did not spent money for those Cheesy  maybe better to produce a new Vaughan Williams or Bax cycle.

Fortunate indeed the listener who can reach such conclusions on the basis of (how many?) listenings to cds he has not bought.

Lyrita releases are "not interesting", the music of Kabalec is "not interesting", Weinberg is "not interesting", the music of Badings is "not interesting", the music of Rontgen is "not interesting"..............

It would be tedious to reiterate my views on the issue of whether or not neglected repertoire is "interesting". Apparently, however we need more cycles of the symphonies of Mahler, Bruckner, Sibelius, Vaughan Williams and Bax. Great composers every one........but to be included under the heading of "Little known music of all eras" (the forum section heading)?

I should forego further comment. It would be 'uninteresting' to other members of this forum.


yes maybe this is the wrong forum for me. i got several new releases from different sides every day, and most of them i listen just once, because its music of minor value. (BTW: it was the Gardner symphony which dissapointed me, not the Veale which i heared twice and is not such bad)  i surely would pay for GOOD music, like a new Sibelius or Bax cycle but nor for all that shabby stuff coming from Lyrita, Dutton etc. years ago i payed also for such disks, i have about 15000 in my collection, but much of them i heard just once or twice, now i dont buy cds anymore, just download flac files from the trackers, or if i really want something, then from Qobuz, eclassical etc. and pay for. but i dont understand that urge buying and collecting more and more cds from unimportent composers. in my country we call such pathological collectors "Messi" and put them in a nuthouse. i guess you and your friends will never be satisfied until you have them all, the symphonies from Röntgen, Badings, Kallstenius, Holbrooke, Foulds, Weinberg, Rosenberg, Segerstam, Hovhaness and all the others, but i tell you a secret: you will not live long enough to get them all.  it exists more than enough RELEVANT music. there are good reasons that some composers are less know than others. musical history can tell you, and history NEVER fails.
15  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Sullivan and Brian on Dutton on: August 24, 2016, 01:46:37 pm
Am i right that we now have almost all 32 Brian symphonies on CD, unless No. 26. Or have i miscount ? Smiley
