Very interesting! He even has his own orchestra, the Symphonie-Orchester Graunke. I checked streaming services but it seems mostly he records operetta and the like on CD. I have never heard of Edition Sedina ("since 1962") and it seems to be his personal company as well ... "We carry all compositions of the famous composer and conductor KURT GRAUNKE either on CD or as notes. You can also get the complete notes for a symphony orchestra of every composition by Kurt Graunke on request". I think "famous" is a slight exaggeration.

Very interesting, Toby - maybe "Fanfare for the Common Man" is a bit of a clue? I don't suppose anyone ever thought of writing "Fanfare for the CEO of Exxon".

This is very interesting:

I have heard a lot of rip-offs of the fairground music from Petrushka, but none so blatant as this!

I very much look forward to the Martyr too. I have to say I prefer both these works to the Golden Legend, which was always the work people said was Sullivan's finest non-operatic. There are marvelous moments in GL, but I don't find myself listening to it over and over, and I find the story a bit feeble. Parts 4 onwards I can do without pretty much, and the epilogue is, to my mind, much more conventional than the endings of either Light of the World or Martyr of Antioch (which ends really gloriously, even in the recording we have to use at the moment).

Eduard Frantsovitch Nápravník (1839-1916),


Napravnik was Czech, although he spent most of his working career (conducting, primarily - especially for Tchaikovsky) in Russia.

apparently premiered the complete Suite from Noure and Anitra of Ilynsky.    I don't see that was ever released on either LP or CD.  The question... was it released on a 78?  I believe it was.

When you say "I believe it was" - is this a guess or you have seen something to this effect?

As you probably know by now music from this particular period is not my real preference but I did buy the new release. There is no denying that it is a splendid work given a superb performance! More than worth rescuing from the neglect it has suffered.

Wow, Colin! That's a great response to this major release. Sullivan's non-operatic work has been consistently under-estimated so it is more than gratifying to see the incredibly positive reception accorded to The Light of the World. A rendition at the 1895 Cardiff Festival, conducted by the composer and featuring Clara Butt, effectively saved the festival from bankruptcy. Now it can be heard again in all it's splendour - for the first time in living memory. I look ahead with great anticipation to John Andrew's recording (again for Dutton, sponsored by the Sullivan Society) of The Martyr of Antioch (1880) which is a tremendously inventive score featuring some of Sullivan's finest writing for chorus...

Interesting release on CD with ballet suites by Lhotka and Baranovic from Decca, 1950s: Not sure if Janacek would be pleased with categorizing him under Yugoslav....

IMHO he begun as religious composer and after succesfully passed to orchestral composition
