Hey everyone
I tried to record the symphony tonight, but it seemed to me that the recording was full of little glitches that would make it very irritating to listen to. I don't think it's crappy Internet this end, sounds more like a faulty master tape... Can someone else listen and see if they hear this too?
Otherwise I'll try tomorrow night.

Joseph Rumshinsky (18811956) was a Jewish composer born near Vilnius, Lithuania (then part of Russian Poland). Along with Sholom Secunda, Alexander Olshanetsky and Abraham Ellstein, he is considered one of the "big four" composers and conductors of American Yiddish theater.

His music is more like operetta or maybe music hall, though it's certainly melodic and harmonic and far from atonal. There's a Naxos CD of his music called "GREAT SONGS OF THE YIDDISH STAGE, VOL. 3".  It's unmistakably Yiddish and Jewish in style throughout.  My favourite is the aria "Der rebetsn's tokhter (The Rabbi's Wife's Daughter): Hamavdil" - very operatic and dramatic.   There's another version of it on youtube here - - though it's not as good.

He wrote an operetta The Golden Bride (Die Goldene Kale)  It looks like it was recently performed as on youtube there are two very high-quality clips of excerpts:     and   (3:09-3:34 of this clip hints at a very beautiful aria)

This performance was by the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in NY ( and I am trying to find out from them if there is a complete recording - if anyone else knows anything I would be very grateful!

(Rumshinky is one of the composers referenced in the ""Tchaikovsky (and other Russians)" song by Gershwin.)

Well, having finally had a chance to listen to Symphony 6, I find myself liking it quite a bit. It makes considerable intellectual demands on the listener, but it's no more forbidding a work than, say, the 3rd or 6th symphonies of Diamond's teacher Roger Sessions. In any case, I caught enough in my first hearing to want to go back and listen to it again, and that's surely what matters.

Nobody will be surprised that I agree with this observation Smiley

You have go to give credit to BIS for at least attempting to keep pace with Aho's apparently ceaseless flow of new concertos Grin And it is excellent that the company has gone back to record the previously unrecorded Piano Concerto No.1 from 1988-89-the only one of the early concertos missing from the catalogue.

Suddenly a lengthy list of new cds to buy this summer Smiley

Heavens above! Hackbridge Johnson's Symphonies Nos. 10 and 13 Smiley And this time Martin Anderson has got the RSNO to record these symphonies. (Where does the money come from- hiring the RSNO will not come cheap!)

Anyway.......with the Richard Rodney Bennett 2nd in July and the Wordsworth 4th and 8th in June 'tis a summer for unrecorded British symphonies Grin

(oh, and btw the Thomas Wilson Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4 are due for release from Linn in September and the Fifth Symphony is being recorded soon).

.......and  Grin the Franz Reizenstein Cello Concerto will be coming from CPO in June Smiley
