I am not at home, I am in London working (which is why this is in haste), but if this piece is available to purchase on a Bridge cd then reposting it from You Tube is against the policy we have on this forum- a policy we clearly re-established and restated last year.

I have assumed that other works posted on here recently from You Tube are taken from radio broadcasts. If so then that is fine. This one however seems clearly to be on a commercial cd.

When people leave on the artwork from the CD cover, it's pretty obvious.

Quote
most of Coke's chamber music has survived (unlike,allot of his other music). Is there any chance that any more of it will receive recordings? Unsurprisingly,I'd love to hear the Violin Sonata No 2,for example!

I am doing my best. Two things you could do to help: (i) Write to Simon Callaghan (the pianist) saying how much you like Coke's chamber/solo piano music and asking for more; writ to Simon Perry at Hyperion Records urging him to record some of Coke's chamber music with Callaghan, especially the "Elegiac" Trio (which Simon performed with violinist Jamie Campbell and 'cellist Karel Bredenhorst) at a concert I organised last year at St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge (it was very well received), perhaps coupled with the late Trio (and the only other extant trio by Coke) for piano, flute and viola, known as "The Ortina"; (ii)  write to Rupert Marshall-Luck at The English Music Festival and ask him to look at the 2nd Violin Sonata. If you do, I will follow up on that.
I must apologise,for missing your earlier post. Yes,quite! While I was listening to the concertos I looked up a few of the reviews;and,while I was reading an interview,with Simon Callaghan,somewhere (I forget where) I thought of leaving a reply in the comments bit,at the bottom. As you say,the more letters and feedback,the better. I really enjoyed listening to the Somm and Em recordings of his chamber & piano music,recently. I think it is of a very high quality. Regarding his concertos. I'm not really a big fan of romantic concertos,actually. Not that I don't like them. It's just that so many seem to have been churned out,in the latter part of the late nineteenth century (particularly) and early twentieth century;and there are the really great ones,good ones,that deserve a bit better than they get,and the formulaic ones,that tend to send me to sleep! And there are allot of them!! Listening again,to those of Coke,I'm starting to feel that it's the fact that they don't just rely on catchy tunes and flashy effects that is their real virtue. Also,the lack of reliance on formula. While some people complain of lack of developement and ideas petering out;I like the feeling that I don't know quite what to expect. Some of the music (the first movement of the third) brings to mind certain film scores of the golden age of Hollywood,but what's wrong with that? Allot of film music from that period is very good. Then you've got Rachmaninov and Scriabin thrown into the mix. But the influences just make it all the more intriguing,as far as I'm concerned. And,Coke seems to make something of his own out of it. You might find this strange,or annoying? But I actually starting thinking of Reger's Piano concerto at one point. Not because Coke sounds like Reger (He doesn't! Grin)  But,because Reger's concerto gets allot of stick,for it's apparent lack of tunes,and,the obvious comparisons (usually derogatory) with Brahms. Yet,love it,or hate it,the Reger deserves to be judged on it's own merits;and,imho,has a strange fascination of it's own. At least,if it "clicks" with you (if not?! Roll Eyes Grin)!! Anyway,as Alan might say,over at the other forum! I digress!! Roll Eyes Grin Yes,I'm going to have to consider writing some letters (or emails?!)! The more the merrier,as they say!

Wow! Shocked The things a drop of lager can do to the brain! Connecting Sacheverell Coke with Reger?!! But yes,imho (now! Grin) interesting and intriguing concertos. I think I'll have another listen,later. And yes,I will look at writing (ye olde,posted letter + sae) or emailing,the persons/labels,as you suggested.
Incidentally,the booklet,with the Hyperion cd,informs the reader,that an interview with Coke was conducted by the BBC,approximately,two years before his death. The answer may be in an earlier post,somewhere;but has this interview survived? Or has it vanished into the,proverbial,'ether'?! Sad It would be very interesting to hear;or,at least,nice to know that it has survived.

Today I've listened to Close Encounters of The Third Kind (a masterpiece), Ligeti's Atmospheres, and right now listening to Lyatoshynsky's Symphony No. 1.

The Scottish composer Thomas Wilson's Symphonies No.3 and 4 on Linn Records. This is most definitely my kind of music: serious and requiring concentrated listening, modern but accessible. The 3rd is the more enigmatic of the two with some Bartokian elements but a lot of scurrying string work and cross-rhythyms. The 4th is the more "accessible" and is really quite magnificent. The RSNO premiered all three works on the disc (the third is "Carillon" for orchestra) under Sir Alexander Gibson and Bryden Thomson but cannot have performed them for years (Wilson died in 2001). The young conductor, Rory Macdonald, is the son of a very good friend of mine and had to prepare the orchestra, rehearse and record in the space of the usual two days; not easy!

It's on my buying agenda for my next jpc order later this month. Of course, we have broadcast recordings of the two symphonies in our archives, and I very much agree these are excellent pieces, in particular the Fourth. I like Wilson's music very much in general, other works I would strongly recommend are his Fifth Symphony (I hope a CD recording will appear some day as well!), his Violin Concerto or his "Incunabula" for Piano.
