Ah yes,kyjo. He was almost ubiquitous for a while both here and at the GMG. I don't think he was banned from there,if that's the place jimfin is referring to. I remember reading some members discussing his absence (there is a thread devoted to erstwhile members there). His huge enthusiasm for his favourite composers was commendable;although he could be a little too earnest at times. Phew!!There are only so many times you can try to understand why László Lajtha (for example) didn't click with you,even though you tried listening to every single symphony about three hundred times!!! Maybe just leave it for a few years? One day........perhaps?! Still nobody's perfect. Someone I envy sometimes is vandermolen (Jeffrey). His posts are always so concise and to the point. He doesn't drone on and on and on and on and on,like me!! Roll Eyes Grin

For those confined to ye olde pc and wired mouse and keyboard. I can't help but ask how Dundonnell is posting here? Has he taken his pc on the plane? Or perhaps sitting in an internet cafe typing away with a cold drink,surrounded by people drinking real coffee (instant here) or whatever they drink there?! I know that someone over at the GMG was using something called a tapp-erty,or something?!! Huh

kyjo versus the Volcano? That would make a good plot for a movie! Come back kyjo!!

I've only just seen this thread and greatly enjoy my contact with Kyjo, who seems alive and well on the 'other' forum. We share many musical tastes too. My reason for posting here after the thread has been in hibernation for so long is to let cilgwyn know, if he ever reads it, that I regard his posts as one of my highlights of these forums. I love all the context that we get and have, on occasion, tried to copy his style but it is not as good as the original. His messages often make me smile as well as being of great musical interest (apart from Gilbert and Sullivan) - which is a good thing.  Smiley

In early 2018 I acquired a large archive of documents by French conductor and composer René Leibowitz to the Belgian publisher Editions Dynamo. The collection consists of handwritten articles, typescripts and contracts, as well as the complete correspondence of Leibowitz to Editions Dynamo. Given their singular musical and historical value, I have transcribed the letters from this archive and make them available in an ebook for the first time to the general public.

The ebook is titled:

Rene Leibowitz to Editions Dynamo

The 114 letters of Rene Leibowitz
to the Editions Dynamo of Pierre Aelberts
between 1947 and 1951

and can be downloaded free of charge from my website:

But attention: The letters are of course in French...

Composer Fridrich Bruk (he was born in Ukraine in 1937, emigrated to Finland in 1974) has written a symphony in memory of Roine Rautio.
Apparently he had the chance to know the composer personally, so he dedicated his 4th Symphony to him.

Here, the first 11 minutes is Roine Rautio's suite on the themes of Kalevala:

Regarding his father, here is 1st page of his "Symphony No. 1", but it seems to be a piano score:

All in all, Roine Rautio mixed Sibelian influences with the Russian school in quite an interesting way.

This foolishness has gone on long enough.

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

Probably I'm a bit late but De Toonzaal in the Dutch city of Den Bosch ('s Hertogenbosch) is alive and kicking. They offer mainly chamber music (because it's not a concert hall venue for large symphonic repertoire).

Aminollah Hossein's ballet suite "Scheherazade" was included in a collection of Persian symphonic music issued on records by Colosseum in 1980 and reissued on CD in 2005. Terrific, atmospheric work of about 23 minutes. Have no idea if these are the same composer or work, though the composer to whom I refer died in 1983.

Dear Bosque
Yes is the same man.He was also renowned for his film music in France.
I have Colosseum cd therefore i would like to know it

It is very unfortunate, but this forum has been taken over by a couple of unauthorised members.

Some one hacked the forum password, but no one will admit having done so.

The hacked password did somehow get into the hands of Dundonnell, who is sitting on it and refusing to reveal it to any one!

The rebels do not appear to be open to negotiation, and their motives and agenda are quite unknown.

So, as from to-day the 9th of October, Latvian and Dundonnell are expelled from this forum. They are now no longer members, and have no right to post anything here as members.

What has to happen next is a forum recovery. Further details will be given here in a day or two, and I will be consulting with members.

Copyright: Please note that the name "Art-Music Forum" and much of the introductory material lie under my own copyright.

Of course all this trouble can be avoided simply by giving me the pirate password, to the possession of which I am without a doubt entitled.
