Okay, there're many more composers with Nazi sympathies. There're many with Stalin sympathies etc. I think cpo intends to evaluate Graener's music, not his sympathies.

The unspoken assumption among those who protest such things is that the music must be infected with the sympathies.

I think cpo introduced Paul Graener some years ago and seemed to have the intention to release a complete survey of his orchestral works (3 Volumes released so far)?

hmm .....I seem to remember that some members had a problem with Graener :   "Graener had joined the Militant League for German Culture, and on 1 April 1933 he became a member of the Nazi Party."   Don't want to open that can of worms but just saying...!!!

Sorry but whats wrong with terms like not relevant or redundant? Aren't they self-explanatory? Not relevant means without any importance for musical history and redundant means superfluous (People had better spent time for something useful than recording boring music). What about the freedom of speech in this Forum?

It is no good pretending that Braga Santos continued to compose the sort of rich, romantic, lyrical music of the first four symphonies. These are wonderful, life-enhancing works which a number of us love unreservedly. They were written when Braga Santos was in his twenties.

But Braga Santos evolved his idiom as he got older and came into more contact with contemporary music. His music did become more dissonant and (as you say) acerbic.His later music may therefore come in some ways as "a disappointment" but that is clearly the music he wanted to write and the listener needs to come to terms with that and take it on its merits.

Btw.....this new Naxos disc now means  that my September shopping list has risen to six cds:
1) John Jobert Symphony No.3/Piano Concerto from Lyrita
2) Ruth Gipps Symphonies Nos. 2 and 4 from Chandos
3) Walter Braunfels Piano works from Capriccio
4) Wilhelm Stenhammer Cantata "Sangen" from BIS
5) Weinberg Symphony No.13 from Naxos
6) the Braga Santos

.......an expensive month!! Grin

At last!  I have been searching for the Piano Concerto regularly on the internet for the last couple of years.  I assumed it was only a matter of time before it would be recorded and issued on CD.

It seems a mixture of the acerbic and consonant.

You can hear parts of it from its UK premiere in 2015 on You Tube.  See:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UU-PIexetg

Thanks Toby, this is interesting.  Do you know where we can buy or download the music?

How extraordinary- didn't know he was a composer. Wish he'd recorded Miaskovsky's 6th Symphony as he conducted the legendary premiere. I love his Rachmaninov and Glazunov symphonic recordings.
