I don't know if the Setu Symphony is commerically available.. I think that was a radio broadcast recording.  I see it is also on Youtube. 
I'd like to find a commercially available recording esp. in the new bit rate format that Chandos has

Chill evening here in Turkey (yes, still !) so, since I've just been disappointed to discover that I already have the requiem uploaded this p.m. to YT, I'll continue with the country anyway : Lithuania tonight !
 Ceslovas Sasnauskas - Requiem
Saulius Auglys-Stanevicius - Marimba Concerto
Joseph Achron (officially Lithuanian born, I'm assured !) -  Violin Concerto
Onute Narbutaite - 2nd Symphony

Just for completion: Joseph Achron was born in Lazdijai, today it is in Lithuania. His place of birth belonged to Tsarist Russia. He was child of Jewish parents. His younger brother Isidor was a very gifted pianist, who for many years was a music accompanist to violinist Jascha Heifetz.

All Salmanov's symphonies are great, especially the valedictory Fourth. They are about on par with Shebalin's
cycle and are largely similar in style to them (think Miaskovsky-meets-Prokofiev-meets-Shostakovich).

I'm plugging away at the cpo Atterberg symphony cycle - right now I'm in the middle of the Third.  Quite impressive work...very interesting use of dynamic contrast.

Really enjoying the music of Dr. Robert Turner at the CMC website. Robert Turner was
a melodic and very prolific composer who deserves a much wider audience, his music is quite endearing.
His 3rd symphony and chamber Concerto were especially enjoyable.

You're making this fellow proud Grin The Third, as I have remarked countless times, is an extraordinary work Smiley Wait until you get to the awe-inspiring finale Smiley

Wow - thank you; one I'd missed entirely, as nothing on YT. After a successful visit to classical-music-online, I'll be getting up to speed on him tonight !

Well, so far I'm four of five CDs into the cycle, and I'm quite pleased.  The Third remains the capstone (of the eight to which I have listened), but I find much to enjoy in most of them thus far.  I will admit I've been too lazy to listen to them in numerical order, but that throws into greater relief some of his artistic development.

I can't really call it a surprise, as I was already familiar with Atterberg's music (I own a Sterling recording of the concerti for piano and violin).  But it's made for some pleasant listening these past few days.

I don't listen to them (or indeed a cycle of any sort) in numerical order, so don't feel lazy Grin Glad you are enjoying Atterberg's music, though I would say it is much more than just "pleasant listening" Smiley
