It's certainly the case that CPO releases tend to have the most prolix, wordy liner notes you are ever likely to encounter.

Is generic vacuousness preferable?

If you read German it becomes evident that ungainly translations can often be blamed for the obscurities and ponderousness.

Perhaps it's the translators that slow everything down and not the academics!

This looks interesting!

I wonder how this "Wieland the Smith" compares with Hausegger's?

With the three Lars-Erik Larsson symphonies now released CPO's "ongoing series" would now seem to be:

1) Johann Nepomuk David (Austria-Germany): four symphonies released out of eight.
2) Julius Rontgen (Netherlands): eleven symphonies released out of twenty-two extant.
3) Henk Badings (Netherlands): eight symphonies released out of fifteen.
4) Louis Glass (Denmark): two symphonies released out of six.

The David are being recorded by the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra under Johannes Wildner....but at snail's pace. The Rontgen and Badings continuation depends I suppose on the conductor David Porcelijn's commitment to them.

I am pretty pessimistic about:

5) Rudolph Simonsen (Denmark): two symphonies released out of four. These were recorded in 2006 and released in 2009 but the conductor was Israel Yinon who died in 2015.
6) Nathanael Berg (Sweden): three symphonies released out of five. These were recorded in 2006-2007 and released in 2009-2010. The conductor was Ari Rasilainen who does not seem to do much for CPO these days.
7) Edvin Kallstenius (Sweden): one symphony released (to some acclaim) out of five. However that recording by the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra under Frank Beermann, released in 2014, was actually recorded in October 2007.

I may be wrong but my gut feeling is that CPO has lost interest in these three composers.

Maybe they should take up the Norwegian Klaus Egge, the Swede Hilding Rosenberg, the Finn Ernest Pingoud, the Pole Grazyna Bacewicz Huh??

My apologies. I overlooked Glass. I shall add to my post.

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...!!!

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.

The subject of the political affiliations,sympathies, associations of particular composers has been discussed on this forum ad nauseam. The discussion goes round and round in circles and is incapable of resolution.

I would respectfully suggest that we leave it alone.

Inappropriate as this thread might be for the discussion, if some members (me not included) want to go more rounds with the topic elsewhere why would that be problematic?  The resolution of debates is a rare occurrence in any case.
