My discovery for 2012?. Too many to count, thanks mostly to AMF and before that, to UC.
For 2013: Nicolas Astrinidis (1921-2010), for those who like symphonico-choral works and don't know him, please hurry to YT there are several hours of music, mostly oratorios. Great music!.
Also Florentin Giménez (1925), composer from Paraguay, you can listen to two of his symphonies at Radio Mec website, at Conciertos das Américas http://radiomec.com.br/concertodasamericas/destaques/.

Thanks for the tips, Roberto! I must admit that I had previously never heard of any Paraguayan composers (let alone heard their music) Roll Eyes

I have been busy digging through lots of Soviet-era scores this past year, so great discoveries are coming at me quite often. If forced to point out my most significant 'discovery of the year', I would have to single out Georgian composer Sulkhan Tsintsadze and point out the following amazing website, which has all of his string quartets available for streaming:

http://www.georgian-music.com/free_music/tsintsadze.php

In addition to that, it was excellent to hear both his 24 preludes for piano and his 24 preludes for cello/piano on Youtube thanks to some generous individuals on there.

Thanks for the link, Caos! Tsintsadze is a composer I have long been interested in. His Fantasy for piano and orchestra, which is a delightful and wholly accessible mixture of Rachmaninov and Khachaturian, is a favorite of mine. His later works are a bit less conservative in general, but still quite accessible to my ears. There's this disc with the Fantasy and some other orchestral works of his and of his countryman Alexei Machavariani:



and his Violin Concerto no. 2 and Fantasy for piano and orchestra on YouTube:
VC (1/2):
VC (2/2):
Fantasy:

I'd really like to hear at least one of his five symphonies, which do not appear to be available anywhere.

Dear Kyjo
Sadly it's only a reissue of this disc in CD-R.

Thanks for the info about the Gauk CD-I have no problem with it being taken from that set as I would not want the extra "baggage" (i.e. "sung" works) that comes along with it in the box set!

Oh, and thanks for the list! I only know the Yamada, Nosyrev and Mirzoyan symphonies. The last two are quite powerful works, very well worth investigating Smiley Which isn't to say, of course, that the Yamada isn't! At least it's more Japanese-sounding than his Triumph and Peace Symphony, which could've been written by a mid to late 19th-century German composer!

Agreed, Toby! Orthel's powerful music certainly merits more attention than it has been getting. Fortunately, between the Etcetera disc and the downloads available here, we have access to all of Orthel's six symphonies and some other works of his Smiley

Orthels music is great..If it were not for abysmally poor audio for most of his symphonies, he would be a favorite of many more.

So, returning to the original premise of this discussion.... Grin

Like, I'm sure, many of you, I owe much to the generous contributors to this forum, as well as UC and the Soviet composers forum, and I could easily answer this question differently on different days, bur putting it all into the basket and coming up with just one name, I don't think there's any music I've discovered over the past year or so that I've enjoyed more than the symphonies of Mikhail Nosyrev, especially the first.

Please note that I do not consider myself to be a musician, and my responses to the music I love are not necessarily musically well informed, but notwithstanding Nosyrev's rather tragic personal history, I find that there's odten a cartoonish, looney tunes kind of character to some of this music.  There are passages in which I sometimes have visions of Elmer Fudd or Bugs Bunny popping out from behind a bush.  Please note that, bizarre as it may sound, I mean this in a totally positive way.  Nuttiness in music, it seems, is something I appreciate more and more the older I get.   Wink

I agree heartily with you Smiley With CPO doing series of the symphonic outputs of Rontgen, van Gilse, Badings and now Andriessen, perhaps they should consider Orthel Smiley His music is of an undoubtedly high quality-dare I say even more so than Badings?

So many interesting titles here...mouth-watering (ear-watering?) to say the lest.  Are any of the works available for upload on this site? Malito
