"Mystery of Time" really does deserve a modern recording. There is an alternative version available taken from a radio broadcast with the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra under Vladimir Valek but it is a much lower voltage, more careful and cautious performance. What Ancerl achieves so magnificently in the 1960 recording is to gradually but inexorably screw up the tension as the work proceeds towards its shattering central climax. The Czech PO in its full glory attack the score with total commitment and if the brass appear in this recording somewhat "blaring" then I actually think that suits the music Grin They slice through the pulse of the music in a way which I find quite terrifying.

Hello Colin,

thanks for bringing Kabelac' "Mystery of Time" to my attention - after listening to the recording this morning I also discovered an overwhelming companion piece on the CD,
Jan Hanus' Symphonie Concertante op.31. It is an exciting work for organ, harp, timpany & strings.

Sometimes you find a work that pleases very much.
Such a work, I'm listening to now, is the DUETTO by the Russian composer Mikhail Gogolin.

Some of you might find it good as I do, so I uploaded it to Mediafire;

http://www.mediafire.com/download/o90habbu266d0ge/gogolin%2C_mikhail%2C_duetto%2C_alekandr_loskutov%2C_vn%2C_galina_loskutova%2C_pf%2C_vologda_phil_c_o%2C_mikhail_gogolin.mp3

On this site you learn more about this composer

based on your tweak, I started listening to Jan Hanus last nite and did not stop till early morning.
Wonderfully orchestrated tonal works, many with a strong forward motion. Sometimes the melodies are elusive, but I'm sure more listening will reveal them. I'm surprised at how few of his fine symphonies are posted anywhere, yet he was very prolific. There is an inactive link to the 5th at UC and the 7th is mentioned but also a defunct link.
I know there are many talented Czech composers, so he is likely to be ignored.
But maybe lovers of Czech music could reczech this situation. This composer is extremely imaginative and sorely deserves a special thread. (Also the special n character at the end of his name causes problems locating his music.) I hope it did not diminish interest.

The Hanus Symphonie Concertante is a marvelous work. The lush textures Hanus is able to create in this work are spellbinding! If his symphonies are that good, I simply must hear them!

Hello Colin,

thank you for uploading the Hanus symphonies to this forum!!
Hopefully you have got his works for piano & orchestra (Aristophanic Variations + Three Fragments of the Apocalypse) as well?
I would greatly appreciate an upload of these works.

Best regards,

I am afraid that the problem appears to be a Browser issue rather than anything wrong with the uploads themselves. I have just successfully downloaded each symphony from the links provided. I use Firefox personally.

In these circumstances I do not think that reuploading the files would do any good.

I do have five more pieces by Hanus-including the ones mentioned-and will up0load these as well.

Glad that the links are now ok for you Smiley

I have re-uploaded five more works by Hanus and added the links to my previous post. I do not have performers for the Three Episodes.

(By the way....it is Dundonnell rather than Odonnell Grin)

Listening to music from this site:
The Forgotten Ritual by John Ireland followed by Prairyerth by Robert Johnson..two very delicious morsels of music indeed.

I just got 3 CDs from David Kent Watson as part of Cameo Classics' closeout prior to the distribution deal clicking in.  I'm plowing through Brüll and Jadassohn.  Right now it's the Serenade No. 1 of Brüll.  I'm going to upload this entire CD into my system and burn 2 compilation CDs for my conductor friend, all Brüll.  I wonder if there are any overtures by Jadassohn?
