The composer of item 10 is Félix-Alexandre Guilmant who, apart being a renowned composer, was also the organist at La Trinité in Paris from 1871 to 1901.

The soloists may be Russian - but the repertoire is French and German (Karg-Elerg, Debussy, Saint-Saens).  Although I don't know who Gilman (No 10) was  Wink

Thanks for the heads-up about this YouTube relay - which I would otherwise have missed!

I am enjoying the Martland tribute at the moment - with the DSCH still to come.

It's a pity you missed the Glasgow FIERY ANGEL last year - those who were there said it captured the full intensity of that astonishing score.

Last night I was in Glasgow to hear a concert given by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under Martyn Brabbins. The programme was Stravinsky's Symphonies for Wind Instruments, Mark Anthony Turnage's "Martland Memorial" with Colin Currie, and the Shostakovich Symphony No.10. The whole concert is available on You Tube through BBC Streaming-although I fear perhaps not to those outside the UK. The Shostakovich was breathtaking! It is of course one of the greatest of 20th century symphonies but the orchestra played it to the very edge of that sense of almost hysterical, "playing as if their very lives depended on it" brilliance which had me absolutely gripped, smiling broadly and barely able to sit still. Absolutely fantastic!!

Oh, how I hate orchestral works with a speaking voice  Angry

I understand that....but the work in question is only one of four compositions on the disc.

Incidentally, Toccata refers to Sutermeister as one of the generation which followed Ernest Bloch (born 1880), Othmar Schoeck (born 1886), Frank Martin (born 1890) and Arthur Honegger (born 1892). The composers of the next generation would include:

BECK, CONRAD (1901-89)
BURKHARD, WILLY (1900-55)
FLURY, RICHARD (1896-1967)
GEISER, WALTHER (1897-1993)
LEVY, ERNST (1895-1981)
MOESCHINGER, ALBERT(1897-1985)
SUTERMEISTER, HEINRICH (1910-95)
VOGEL, WLADIMIR (1896-1984)

So Sutermeister would be the youngest of that generation by far.

Vegemite tastes very much more salty than Marmite, to me - not something I can cite in its favour.  On the other hand, one can simply spread it thinner?  Problem solved!  Wink
