I am an admirer of his music as well..at times, his tonality sounds a great deal like Frank Martin but Mieg is less angular, more lyrical and relaxing.
He is quite well represented on Ytube.

Listening to Howard Blake's Clarinet Concerto, highly reccomended for those who may not be
gaga over clarinet concertos. This is very dreamy romantic music typical of this fine composer.

Blake,Howard  (1938 ) - Clarinet Concerto (1985)
Thea King (clarinet),ENGLISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA, HOWARD BLAKE, conductor. Recorded in 1985..

Muzio Clementi's symphonies, has been awhile and still they hold me all the way through.

Indeed, the Clementi symphonies are among my favorite lesser-known late classical symphonies. Very inventive, quite "meaty" and thoroughly enjoyable music through and through. IIRC the Third is a stirring work which incorporates the British national anthem.

Got a good dose of Edward Gregson's music tonite and wondered why he is not considered as one of the best modern British composers.
Unlike some other heralded modern UK composers, his music does not sound fabricated and has a strong sense of purpose and direction.
Well crafted tonal music with no gimmicks.
In the past, I had only heard some of his virtuoso works for brass and brass band and had greatly misjudged him on that basis.
His Violin Concerto and Concerto for Orchestra, you must hear...The Clarinet Concerto has some magical moments.

Be advised that it may just be a personal preference, but none the less, he is certainly worthy of your time.

Thank you, Mr. JR; I'm trying to get as much value as possible from my recent 'subscription' to the c-m-o site, & it's more than useful to have someone else searching out gems too !

I'm listening to a disc of lieder by Othmar Schoeck at the moment - Elegi op. 36.  It's far less angular than I was expecting - not unattractive music, all told.  Before that, some Brahms chamber music.  And last night I listened to Leoncavallo's I Medici, which Opera Orchestra of New York is doing come April.  Wish I could be there - it's a well-put-together piece.  Not quite a masterpiece, but it gets better as it goes along, I find.

Last night started making my way through the Symphonies of Charles Tournemire again - I try to listen through them at least once a year.

I'm not much into horn concertos per se, but Schoek's Horn Concerto has an unforgettable opening theme that I keep humming.

You are welcome, cjvinthechair..
Besides searching by composer, depending on your mood, you can also access music by country or by artist (I use very busy conductors like Svetlanov, Bernardi, Jarvi, etc.).
If you click a piece of music you like, clicking on the posters name will bring up their page and clicking on the number of videos posted will bring the postings up..thru them if you have time.
Happy hunting.

Yes - getting there ! Unfortunately, one of my favourite posters, from Canada, has well over 6 thousand uploads; not so easy, nor is it easy(unlike YT) to get back to the place in his uploads where you finished last time !
So, the more people hunting the better.

Speaking of which...here's a composer I found with some interesting works; he's a bit obsessed with bells, I suppose, but there's plenty else to enjoy.

Since it's a boring evening of transferring music to a new back-up drive, & have just done 'D', thought I'd have a 'D'-themed concert !

Ingolf Dahl - The Tower of Saint Barbara
 Ikuma Dan - Symphony no. 3
 Marc-Andre Dalbavie - Flute Concerto
 Rihards Dubra - Mass Signum Magnum
