I agree - I already have pre-ordered it in an obsessive-compulsive frenzy!
 Shocked

3  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: (Some) Twentieth Century American Symphonies Not on CD (again!) on: December 02, 2018, 02:01:37 pm
Listening, in considerable astonishment, to Kevin Puts's Second Symphony it occurs to me that if the composer had produced this in the early 60s in an American university music school he would have suffered the same fate as Arnold Rosner. His teachers would have utterly rejected the music as unacceptably over-emotional with a ridiculously old-fashioned approach to an outmoded reliance on beauty of utterance.

How the world has changed that music like this is performed by a music conservatory orchestra under a leading conductor when the music of those who condemned and rejected Rosner is, if not forgotten, no longer the Only acceptable music permitted a hearing!!

....and Puts is chair of the Peabody composition faculty rather than being driven into suburban New York obscurity (like Rosner)

My deepest thanks for bringing it to my attention! This is what participation in a music forum is for!!

Totally agree with you Colin. One of my 'discs of the year'.

Do we know if this is a single release or part of a cycle???

Single release as far as I know. If it says 'Volume 1' that would be a nice surprise for admirers of Lyatoshinsky.

Should be on their website late December according to Chandos.

Trifles.  What a disappointment given all the substantial works by other composers they could have chosen.

Well.....this time we are in full agreement Grin

The recording is, I believe, from an obscure Wilfred Brown LP on the Jupiter label, a transfer of which can be found here:

http://big10inchrecord.blogspot.com/2018/05/english-songs-from-wilfred-brown.html

I shared this LP (courtesy of a friend of mine) the day before it appeared on YouTube, probably not a coincidence.

Thanks for the clarification.

Have really enjoyed the new Ondine CD, especially 'Symphonic Legend'. However, the whole CD is great.

A most beautiful song. Relevant in view of the commemoration of the end of World War One I think. Sung by the wonderful singer Wiffred Brown (Finzi: Dies Natalis) and not from a commercial CD as far as I'm aware:

I am very impressed by "The Apocalypse". We had an off-air recording of the Sydney performance on here (it should really now be removed of course!) but it is good to hear the work in remastered sound. More listenings are required though to fully appreciate it.

Delighted to know that you like Rawsthorne. He is almost completely forgotten these days but he was a fine composer. The Symphonic Studies and the Symphony No.1 are particular favourires of mine.

Excellent Colin! Encouragement for me to listen to the Apocalypse again today. I must give Rawsthorne's First Symphony another listen to.
12  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Eugene Goossens on Lyrita on: November 04, 2018, 10:45:10 am
I am just about to listen to the work, Jeffrey Smiley

We could now do with a cd recording of the Phantasy Concerto for Violin and orchestra: one of the very few violin concertos of its kind not so far recorded.

Btw is that a photograph of Alan Rawsthorne? I did not know you liked his music.

Yes Colin, it's Rawsthorne. I got fed up with Sir Granville as my avatar! I especially like Rawsthorne's 'Symphonic Studies', Piano Concero No.2 and his fine film score to 'The Cruel Sea'. He's someone whose music I have appreciated more with time. I shall be greatly interested to hear what you think of the Goossens 'Apocalypse'.

I also with that Chandos had recorded Goossens's Symphony 2 as well as Symphony 1 (Richard Hickox's last recording I think).

Well, I just heard this - an extraordinary work although difficult to grasp on one hearing. By the end (and it is a long work) I was moved and wanted to hear it again. It is a very powerful and very well orchestrated work. The audience at the live concert (Sydney Opera House, 1982) certainly seem to have loved it judging by the enthusiasm of their applause at the end. I'm sure that it would be a great experience to hear it live. I found Part 2 more gripping and memorable than Part 1 but that may change on subsequent hearings. Certainly must be heard.

I totally agree A magnificent and moving symphony!

I've been playing the CD again today - it is very moving. I'm glad that you like it as well Colin.
 Smiley

This composer is fantastic.  I haven't heard anything I didn't love of his.  His chamber music is excellent as well as his large scale symphonies and operas.  He deserves all the success he's received and is also a very kind man.  His latest orchestral work is an orchestral song cycle with Renee Fleming.

How interesting and nice to know. Thank you. I know that the 4th Symphony is on CD but is there anything particular that you'd recommend? When I play the Second Symphony on Naxos I tend to always end up repeating it and, therefore, I've hardly gone on to 'River's Rush' or the Flute Concerto yet!
