I expect this is a vain hope, but I would like to hear any of the 8 symphonies of this Cherokee composer!

Man, how I'd give anything to hear those! He lived from 1915 to 1967 and at the time of his death he was working on a symphony using only Native American patterns! You learn something new every day Grin

I have three works by this composer, among them the Fifth Symphony. I'll upload them in the next days, maybe even still today, I'll see. However, I should point out that you shouldn't expect works of bigger scope but rather "pocket pieces": the symphony, for instance, takes just 15 minutes, then there is a symphonic suite of no more than 5 minutes and a violin concerto of about 11 minutes (though the beginning of the first movement is missing). Interesting music, though, I quite enjoyed it when I got the pieces.

Holger!!

WOW!!  I had no idea I would get anything!  This is great!  THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember his name because my parents took me to see the outdoor drama, "Unto These Hills," in Cherokee, NC when I was a kid. (We were all from NC.)   I was probably around 6 or 7 years old and heavy into Mahler and Shostakovich and I was really impressed with the music that Kilpatrick had written for the drama.  I am really looking forward to hearing these pieces!  (You must have everything!)

Great to see you appreciate my Kilpatrick uploads. I think that his music is quite interesting: despite its (partly extreme) brevity, it shows a unique tone, it's robust, bold music with bouncing rhythms, at the same time pretty tuneful and melodious. Regarding the three pieces I uploaded, it might be audible that the two purely orchestral works have been written at a later point, since certain tendencies which can already be found in the Violin Concerto are still more elaborated here.

On the whole, Kilpatrick is a nice discovery for me, it's original and fresh music which deserves to be heard. Getting more of it would be welcome, of course, but this really appears to be a very vein hope. In any case, his output must be large, given the opus number of the Fifth...
