My copy of the Stanford Hyperion CD arrived yesterday.  The music is most attractive.  Fairy Day and A Song of Agincourt are the highlights for me.

I believe this is the same orchestra that Toccata was going to use for future recordings  (Martin??)

This is on its way from Somm at the end of the month:

https://www.somm-recordings.com/recording/piano-concertos-by-dora-bright-and-ruth-gipps/

Sounds lovely, and I am especially keen to hear the Gipps pieces (and remain optimistic that Chandos may come up with a Volume 2 of her Symphonies)  Cool

Oooh, that looks great!   Shocked

Now available for download from Chandos:

Many are not entirely new to CD of course, but there are a couple of premieres, and I am especially pleased to see the Hadley piece, having heard it on the wireless a few weeks ago.

Well, why not?  How is the actual performance?  I commend anyone who sets up a youth orchestra and encourages that enthusiasm, and aspiration to produce a recording.

Here's a less rhetorical statement of the simple point I was making, Colin, - though not nearly as much fun to write.  Novak's Symphonies just aren't very good music, - both in my evaluation and yours.  Thus, no matter the fact that much music of similarly questionable quality may have been recently recorded and issued on CD, it's not "astonishing" and "extraordinary" that these pieces in Novak's output haven't so far themselves found such favour, as it might be if they were masterworks.  No more than just "curious" is what I myself would say.

Of course, Cesar may think better of the music than we do, and in so doing I don't disdain his wish to hear these pieces in superior performance and sound than what we currently have.  But many listeners make often strained efforts to claim merits for some music it plainly does not have, - that is, their collector's enthusiasm induces in them an overvaluation of too much of what they possess or desire, - Novak "in all his glories" as Cesar anticipates things in this case.

I was only responding to excesses in the application of certain words (as I read them) with some debunking excess of my own.  I know this always grates at you, but my persona and style are just different than yours (even when we judge music quite similarly).  Yes, it's all for the good whatever music enterprising recording issuers allow us to hear and consider, - that wasn't what I was objecting to.  Apologies that I gave so much offense with criticism not intended as a personal attack (so often assumed here).

I don't know.. I have not heard this performance yet... not surprised.... but really Ural Youth Symphony Orchestra??!?

Perhaps they were not compensated since they are youth...

Any thoughts on this recording?   I have the Svetlanov complete cycle that eventually made its way to Warner Bros in France.   but  Youth?Huh

The Dundonell's points are more than fair IMO. Each has their own opinions about anything and that is respectable, but I did feel certain desdain from the user Greg K towards the aforementioned music. Nowadays record labels release much stuff I consider not particularly substantial, but somehow it allows to have a more complete vision of the composer or the circumstamces it was composed, and it's eventually good for completists (like me), and it's even much better than recording 1000+ the Mozart's symphonies or the Chopin's Nocturnes, etc. Perhaps there could be some political issue that could bother to some people on mentioning these works. If I remember correctly, one of the Novák's symphonies was like a homage to Stalin or something like that. If that were true, I didn't care for it. I don't like to link music with politics. There will be listeners who won't be able to stand that. Anyway, when tastes are concerned, the possibilities are as many as people exist.

All in all, I would be one of the first buyers if these symphonies were recorded, no matter if I have bad musical tastes or not  Grin
