Very briefly and with my moderator's hat on, and in the spirit of the "light touch", can I respectfully point out to members that further extended discussion of the interpretation of passages from the Bible and modern economic/financial parallels could lead us into stormy waters Grin

In direct response however....the Ina Boyle cd without the bonus track contains 75 minutes of music. The bonus track is timed at 8.50 minutes.

Might I suggest my own Piano Concerto from 2016?  It is a 30 minute concerto scored for solo piano, 2 flutes, piccolo, 2 oboes, 2 clarinet, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, 3 percussion, harp, and strings. 

You can hear an excerpt here:

Somewhere between Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, Shostakovitch, and me.

It's excellent! Didn't know that you were a composer (hopefully not 'unsung').  Smiley

Thank you!  Some of my work has been heard by millions of people but they might not have known it was from me!  I don't know if I am unsung.  I get better luck with works lasting 10 to 15 minutes.
Well, on the basis of your PC of 2016 it should be heard by millions of people.

Cheers, mate.  Much appreciated!  I had an opportunity to get it performed but unfortunately, the orchestra couldn't find a pianist who would be willing to devote the time to learn a 30 minute concerto that isn't in standard repertoire and I am not a virtuoso pianist to take this on.  It's just a lot to ask a skilled pianist and you need a formidable budget to make this happen.  My magnum opus is my hour long symphony which is dramatic and in four movements.  It uses a large orchestra (basically a modern orchestra) but with enlarged percussion section (seven performers minimum in the last movement).  I am currently working on a second symphony which is a commission so has a good chance at a performance but will be more modest in dimensions to adhere to performance practicalities.  Cheers.
Is there a recording of your Symphony 1? A pity you can't find a performer for the PC 3 which is super. I've found your website so I know where you are coming from. Keep up the good work!

The statement of mr. Oliver from Dutton, a standard CD only runs for 79 minutes 59 seconds is absolutely untrue. Technically a red book cd can handle more. A recent BIS recording of Mahler's 6 runs for 86 minutes and 16 seconds. Although this is a SACD the stereo CD layer can be played on standard CD players and handles the 86 minutes fine. (If one owns a cd player from around 1985, one of the first models, we can assume those players will have some trouble playing over 80 minutes....) I don't know the total playing time of the Boyle SACD without the extra SACD track...... Probably it could have been included without any problems..................

St Matthew records Christ as saying: "For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not, even that which he hath shall be taken away." But I've never really understood what our Lord meant. Sounds jolly unfair to me.
One might perhaps be forgiven for concluding from this strange statement that St. Matthew was either the CEO of the UK financial services regulator or its Chancellor of the Exchequer or its head of Department of Work and Pensions. In all seriousness, though, as the phrase sounds as though it means the very opposite of what it ought to mean, either something vital has been lost in translation of St. Matthew was the head of the aforementioned regulator's Register team. If Bach had ever pondered this, it's a wonder that He nevertheless went ahead and wrote the St. Matthew Passion (although, like tens of millions of other people, I'm very glad indeed that he did!)...

But I digress...
