yes.. already chastised about the "1918 Rule"   ... if the composition was written after 1918, then we don't want any threads about it, unless "we" determine that the style is romantic.   The term "we" are certain moderators that will exclusively determine if the composition is romantic.    How silly.

Obviously in invoking of the royal "we",  in anticipation of Will & Kate's #3 to be born early next year...

Sixty symphonies? You are catching up to Derek Bourgeois! Listening to #11 as I type.

Bourgeois has a 12 year head start b 1941 vs b 1953

Rhapsodie Romantique (1947)

He died prematurely at 39, and his claim to fame was the use of his music for the 1976 Montreal Olympics.

Actually - A list of links to Soviet Symphonies could be established to go adjunct to van Rijen's page for quickest access...  I did Shostakovich as an example.  Of course any performance could be linked.    But this might work as a starting point to a more comprehensive list with links.

Here are two annoyances:

Composers who claim that nothing more can be done with tonality because so many composers have used it in the past, so that it is now exhausted. You might as well say that no more poetry can be written in English for the same reason. It just shows a lack of imagination.

Composers who claim to "reinvent musical language" with every new piece. For crying out loud!

On more reflection, I come to think about non tonal music as use of an expanded pallets.  Though most of my compositions are tonal I make an occasional foray to the 'dark side'

Chaos:  The Sedimentary Lines of the Grand Canyon
The expansion of "tonality" into areas that some might describe as "non-tonality" or "atonality" has only served to widen the expressive capabilities of music. I don't know why "atonlaity" - whatever that might mean to whomsoever - should be regarded as some kind of "dark side" as though this could and should be thought of as its only possible manifestation.

When I said, "Dark Side", I was being very tongue and cheek.    I have participated on other sites where anything but  conservative tonality was described by a couple of users as, "Disgusting".  When I suggested to them that They needed to get over the fact that Robert Schumann was dead, they weren't happy.  LOL
I imagine that I might just be able to guess one particular site to which you allude, but no names and all that...

 Grin  There may be more than one now that I think of it

The information is not the same. This is a comprehensive list of all recordings. Onno's site had in addition to recordings the complete work list of each composer with dates.
An archive version is here:
http://archive.is/mHjLQ

Yes I was also a member of Onno's group.  Sorry that he had to shut it down.  what was unique was the recordings that were posted there.   Also, his updates on new recordings, etc.
I didn't know Onno personally, but I had the impression he was getting up there in age.  However, it would be possible to migrate most if not all the downloads here and info about the composers here also.

Is there an efficient way to move it?  Lots of good info there.  If the website is regular HTML it is possible to convert to UBB which is what is used here for images and links.

I think you are onto something.  Tonality lives - those who deny it are probably lazy
