Currently enjoying this cd,which arrived today. The cd has been deleted by Chandos,although it is available as a download.I managed to buy an inexpensive one from a seller on Amazon. The only other copy was being advertised at around £150,or thereabouts!! Lovely,lyrical,beautiful music,all of it,and with an admirable economy of expression. Not a note too long! And,I might add,wonderful performances! Like the two Lyrita cds it is hard to see why this beautifully written music is so neglected by the cd labels and,with the exception of one or two of her most popular compositions,here in Wales,of all places! Sad




also check with eBay from time to time.. you will find lots of deleted CDs or out of print CDs for sale in the "used" category... many times just as clean and in almost new condition.

That's a composer worth to be watched, I think. Never heard any work of this composer before.
Thanks for the info JR

Miroslav Danev is the correct name, dandelion..my spelor is brokn.
Thanks for the correction, Danev is too good to have his name abused.
Here is his own owebsite:

Fine work indeed; OK, I cannot help but feel that he and certain other stage composers of that time had some problem in hiding their enthralledness (is that a word? it is now!) to the Strauss of the two operas just presented in concert performance at the Proms - Salome and Elektra (mon Dieu! - WHAT a weekend!) - but, in Schrecker's case, none the worse for that!

Neil;
I feel Schreker generally does not get the accolades he deserves, perhaps because much of his venue is operatic.
I may be daffy, and in no way to demean it, I see a striking similarity to some of his music to the epic music of Bernard Herrmann.
This magnificent piece is a prime example. Perhaps Herrmann was fond of it?

Toivo Kuula: Songs and Orchestral Music  BBC Concert Orchestra , Martyn Brabbins conducting....on the Dutton Laboratories label... interesting to read further information about Kuula..
his death at age 35 was due to brawl with some Jager officers where they shot him in the head .   note: The Finnish 27th Jäger Battalion (German: Königlich Preussisches Jägerbataillon Nr. 27) was an elite light infantry unit in German Army 1915–1918 which consisted mainly of volunteers of Finnish Jäger troops.
