1  Little-known music of all eras / Notice of interesting concerts around the world / Re: Centenary of October Revolution Concerto on: October 13, 2018, 08:16:39 pm
For anyone within easy reach of Yakutsk, N Siberia :-)  Great to see such enterprising programming there :-)

This foolishness has gone on long enough.

Indeed it has. Thank you to Latvian and Dundonnell for taking appropriate action.

Perhaps it is worth mentoning that this is not an online forum or messageboard - but a formal conference taking place in
the Urals city of Ekaterinburg over 5th to 13th October 2018.

I am sure all of the members here value the time and work spent by the Admin team on keeping the forum up and running successfully.  Thank you!

I am sure none of us joined this message-board to witness this sad charade.

Mr Grew (or whoever is actually lurking behind your login name)

You wandered off from this forum over a year, without making a single announcement or saying as much as goodbye

We have no idea if the individual now lurking behind your name is actually the former founder of this forum, or an imposter

Either way, you relinquished the Moderator function to others - apparently willingly, since you gave them the moderator passwords?

We haven't really missed you, and your mercurial management of these boards is not something we long to see restored, thank you.

As has been pointed out elsewhere, either you - or an indivivual masquerading as you - is encouraging (c)opyright infringement, and that's not something I can condone either.

I fear, King Lear, that having split up your kingdom on your own recognisances., you must learn to live with the results of your folly.

Could we please have a clear statement as to who is/are now the moderators of this messageboard?
8  Little-known music of all eras / Notice of interesting concerts around the world / Re: Prokofev Festival on: September 14, 2018, 09:17:36 pm
Barely a 'festival'  - just all of their repertoire Prokofiev works being performed in one season.
9  Little-known music of all eras / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / DIE TOTE STADT from Komische Oper Berlin - from 30th Sept 2018 on: September 12, 2018, 11:06:30 am
A special late-birthday present for me...  from 30th Sept ff, OPERAVISION will be streaming Korngold's very unsung opera DIE TOTE STADT

Details, cast, creative team, streaming link: http://operavision.eu/en/library/performances/operas/die-tote-stadt

Production is by star Brit director Robert Carsen - so the chances of a thoughtful production that respects the composer's intentions are good  Smiley
10  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Max von Schillings from CPO. on: September 03, 2018, 04:49:27 pm
I must have completely missed the original release: it is not quoted on my (admittedly rather old) catalogue of von Schilling's orchestral music.

If you look after the Schillings, the pounds will look after themselves Wink

Berezovsky's going to be tired at the end of those *two* days!

As if Moscow needs yet another Tchaik PC1 performance?   Roll Eyes
12  Little-known music of all eras / Notice of interesting concerts around the world / Re: Russian Song and Piano music on: August 29, 2018, 07:42:19 am
Congratulations - a very enterprising program!  Will Pushkin House be providing translations of the song texts?  ))

A welcome appearance, Gerard  :-)  Please pop by more often? 
14  About music in general / Individual composers / Re: Oliver Knussen RIP on: July 10, 2018, 05:33:28 am
He was very well-known at the time of their creation for his two children's operas, which were commissioned by Glyndebourne - Where The Wild Things Are, and Higglety-Pigglety Pop

Some element of mis-expectation (or mis-coordination) between OK and Glyndebourne resulated in both scores being delivered to the opera house in around 88%-completed format -leading to premieres at which certain scenes had to be narrated from the libretto, as the music was not complete enough to perform. This element distracted from the end result, as certain carping critics were unkind enough to go on (and on) about in print.

In their own genre they are masterpieces, and I would easily rate them alongside pieces like L'Enfant Et Les Sortileges.  It's frankly a pity OK didn't write more for the theatre - as he did so very well.

This is truly a stand-out interpretation in every sense - even by the enviable standards of the Bavarian State Opera. The unflagging level of orchestral detail which Petrenko finds is an outstanding achievement. The singing is lyrical at every moment, never resorting to 'Helden' shouting or bluster.  Every note has a beauty of its own, inseperably woven into the text and meaning behind it.  A Gesamtkunstwerk indeed!

A production and concept that highlights the 'unremitting foolishness' of the nay-sayers on ignorant websites.
