Currently struggling with,and losing to, some very intemperate weather on holiday in Turkey, so, an evening of uplifting music + a good book : Turkish music though, I think !

Fazil Say - 1001 Nights violin concerto
Ulvi Kemal Erkin - Symphony no. 1
Necil Kazim Akses - The Citadel of Ankara
Cengiz Tanc - Lyric concerto for flute, oboe & strings
Ahmed Adnan Saygun - 5 Songs for Mezzo-soprano & orchestra (lovely way to finish !)

Happy, warm, listening to all !

Great to know that you love to listen to Turkish composers while in Turkey too. Not that they are that well known or honoured locally (the Opera house in Istanbul at Taxim Square, named after Rey, had even disappeared when I went there last year). Huh I think I know them all, except for the citadel piece by Akses. Where did you find that?

Right now listening to a Violin Concerto by the Japenese composer Ichikawa.
The violinist is Masafumi Hori, unknown to me until now, and the orchestr, one of favourites is The Czech Philharmonic, under Zdenek Kosler. Very old fashion qua timin, just under 40 minutes, keeps me occupied until the end.

The work can be found on the Classical podcast, that was lately mentioned at the forum.

I'm listening to some Wallingford Reigger.  My first encounter with his work...and likely my last.  Not my cup of tea, I'm afraid.

I did listen to this earlier:   Never thought I'd get the chance to tick "Bahamas" off of my composers list...

Don't give up on Riegger just yet! His Third Symphony utilitizes dodecaphony but is a powerful and accessible work. The catchy Dance Rhythms for orchestra show Riegger in tonal, lighter mode. Both works can be found on a still-in-print CRI CD.

Synchronicity - I was also listening to the Kreek Requiem yesterday, and his Setu Symphony as well (which I think is the better piece).

Yup, you're right about Setu - I'm just biased.  Right, which country shall we honour with our interest next ?!

Oh, I know - spent too short a time there, off a cruise ship; + it was a Sunday, so record shops largely shut - did hear a lovely mass/liturgy...whatever the right word is....in the (?) cathedral.

The last few nights I have been working my way through the organ music of Oskar Sigmund ( http://www.classicsonline.com/composerbio/Oskar_Sigmund/ )

but needed a break from that and switched to "Le Zodiaque" for piano by Georges Migot last night.

Well, always welcome inspiration, so following new friend Mr Giwro, let's try a few German pieces.

Max Butting - Der Lugengeschichte vom Schwartzen Pferd
Ernst Meyer - Harp Concerto
York Holler - Spharen
Paul Hindemith - Requiem for those we love.

Mmm.....lovely evening !

I know the Alba recording of the Requiem (on my first visit to Tallinn, back in 1993, I remember somebody told me it had never been performed since the 1930s, as 'religious' pieces were forbidden in Soviet times). But where can we find a recording of the Setu Symphony?  Roll Eyes
