But should Moscow audiences be expected to have heard of Birtwistle? (I ask objectively, not sarcastically or critically)

Why not drop them line with this excellent suggestion. I will certainly back you up.

Sorry to say that I've bought three CDs of his symphonies, all of which I found entirely unmemorable. The CD cover art was better than the music as far as I was concerned. Others clearly enjoy it more than I do.

I enjoyed the VW Richard II CD very much. Not great music but still very enjoyable. As a resident of Sussex it's always good to hear a new recording of the Fantasia on Sussex Folk Tunes. Any chance of Dutton releasing Robin Milford's Second Symphony? I thought that it was quite light weight until I heard the slow movement which I found very moving.

From DGG? I doubt it. is a Long, Long time since I bought a DGG disc!! Note that the performers get higher billing than the composer. Roll Eyes
Quite! A sign of the times,eh?! But,at least it's something other than the usual repertoire! (I wish the big labels would get,more,adventurous again!)
DGG have occasionally released surprising material like the Baltimore SO's recording of Pettersson's 8th Symphony (sadly never reissued on CD as far as I'm aware).

I fear you're not wrong there!   Cool   I haven't been to the Wigmore Hall for donkey's years, so I don't know how things zre there these days?

But let's hope their musical acument stretches a little further than our expectations?  In all fairness, I think the situation is very much the same wherever we go.  I found myself having an unexpected interval chat in Moscow last month, trying to explain who Harrison Birttwistle is   Cry

Through the generosity of PJ I have been able to post links to Christopher Gunning's Symphony No.2.

Should this broadcast be issued commercially the links will be removed.

This and the Korngold seem to be studio recordings for commercial release later.

Gunning's 2nd Symphony is being broadcast on BBC Radio 3 this afternoon, performed by BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Kenneth Woods.
This is the only early Gunning Symphony  not commercially recorded - is there a chance that anyone could record it and make it available here, please?
Or, might this performance be a prelude to a commercial recording anyway?

A little bird tells me that a very good trio have recorded the first 2 piano trios by Litolff, with the 3rd in the pipeline - possibly, if a suitable companion trio can be found (I have suggested Bronsart's). And this on a well known label with a reputation for excellence. I can say no more at present.
