No 2 has long been one of my favourites, but more recently I am fixated on No 3, which has one of those wonderfully exultant openings - reminiscent of Schmidt #2. When you analyse it, it's actually a synthetic melody, but it just sounds so glorious.

DA diddle-diddle-diddle DUM!

Then rising scale:

Da da da da da da da DUM!

Complete Sulek Symphonies cds gives a wider wiew of this composer (for instance half of 2 Symphony was under level of listening) this surely isn't a fault of uploader but underscore quality of professional mastering.

Listening right now to a beautiful double concerto, I found on YT.

Marius Herea's Sonata double concertante for violin, piano & orchestra.


Wonderful playing by Oksana Peceny.
The work is very romantic in feel to me.

The BIS recording of Larsson's symphony 2 by the Helsingborg SO under Frank is much better than a mere stop-gap. But we urgently need a fully professional account of symphony 3, played with panache -- the sort CPO has provided before to Scandinavian symphonists.

Reading a biography of Morton Gould, so listened to his Piano Concerto, Interplay, Chorale and Fugue in Jazz, next plan to listen to his 4 symphonies in sequence. Lots of his things are done by Naxos and Albany. Very enjoyable. Sad that he always felt such reticence and would denigrate his own music because he had very little "formal" education, but he was a star, especially during the war, and many of his more serious works seem really genuine and pleasing to me. I like him.

any thoughts on the Sym #3 with Sten Frykberg conducting on BIS?

Hope to learn your verdict on each of them soon.  Wink

My own discovery, this year, were the ten symphonies of John Kinsella (except for 'Millenium Symphony' No. 8, performed in 2000, but the recording of that occasion did not pop up yet).

Just received the Jean Sibelius The Essential Orchestral Favourites with Photo Album on Ondine in the post today.   This is a 2014 release and would recommend it if you are a Sibelius fan.  Several photos have never been published before ... also the booklet is very informative.
