If you were or still are a member of another music forum you will be aware that I posted catalogues of the Orchestral Music of around 300 composers in the Composer Reference Section of that forum.

Rather than attempt to copy each and every one of these onto this forum......which would be (a) enormously time-consuming and (b) somewhat presumptuous of such a brand new member.....

I have uploaded all the catalogues to

composers.gulabin.com

There you will find all the 'old' catalogues together with new ones for
Daniel Asia, Grazyna Bacewicz, John Harbison, Vincent D'Indy, Laszlo Lajtha, GianCarlo Menotti, Alexander Moyzes, Vitezslav Novak, Otakar Ostrcil, Andrzej Panufnik, Gavrill Popov, Christopher Rouse, Vissarion Shebalin, Maximilian Steinberg and Boris Tchaikovsky.

These were completed over the last fortnight to try to keep my mind off other difficulties Grin

At present the catalogues are in an extended list of pdf files, arranged alphabetically by the initial letter of the composer's first name......but I shall produce a much better Index as soon as I can.

Two further points:

The 'old' catalogues have, I understand, been archived in another place but now from their new location I can both add more catalogues and can amend and correct existing catalogues. They will therefore have a 'new', organic existence.

And, secondly, please, please note that my own interests lie in the fields of orchestral and choral music. My lists do NOT therefore contain chamber music, instrumental music, operas or songs. I apologise now, again, in advance but what you see is what you get from me. If others can add the rest of a composer's musical output then that is just fantastic Smiley Smiley  What remains, I think, unique to these lists is that I add-where I can-the timing of each work and whether or not it is or has been issued on cd.

As regards this section of the board, are the topics listed alphabetically? If this is the case, could a moderator rename the existent topics to reflect the following format:

Last Name, First Name (dates) - Worklist, etc....

...and require that further lists follow this guideline. The only alternative might be to segregate the names by nationality. I just feel like things are going to get chaotic once a lot more names start showing up.

I believe this would make the overall board more organized. Just an idea.

EDIT: Either that or we could place some kind of sticky on the top that contains links to all of the composers individual threads.

A very good idea. I can do that right away - but first: does every one want the names in a single alphabetical list (i.e. all composers that ever lived, regardless of nationality), or would people prefer to see one sub-board for each nationality (e.g. Czech), with all the Czech composers in an alphabetical list within the Czech sub-board?

Actually it doesn't matter much which method is used initially, because it should be easy to change things around once the number of names increases; but it would be nice to have a few pointers as to preferences.

Well done & much thanks to Mr. Dundonnell for all his efforts with the composer categorisation - I've 'favourited' their new home already ! Glad to see some of the 'new' names on the list

Regarding future organisation of such lists - if it's easily possible, I'd put my 2 pence-worth in favour of a nationality, then alphabetical split.

Many thanks.

I agree Smiley

All the composers from a specific country listed alphabetically by surname. That was how it was done elsewhere(by me, as it happens Grin) but, seriously.....it will be the easiest way of finding a particular composer's worklist.

BTW I have updated and added my catalogues for Alun Hoddinott and John McCabe   and will do so also for Daniel Jones later (composers.gulabin.com)

Daniel Jones and Peteris Barisons are now updated Smiley

Many thanks to Latvian for providing so much of Barisons' output Smiley

Those new to the catalogues will find that almost all of the music of Daniel Jones is housed in the British Music Archive Smiley Smiley

(Incidentally....an * in the catalogues indicates that a private recording of the piece is available either in the British Archive or on application Grin)

As will be seen I have now made a start on a top-level categorization, with one board for each nationality, in alphabetical order. Of course not all nationalities are there yet, but I will expand it soon. If you don't see the nationality you want, just post a catalogue in the main board, and I will move it to a new nationality section.

Now I have one question: would people prefer to see separate sections for English Composers, Scottish Composers, Welsh Composers, and Irish Composers? Or would they rather have just one section entitled British and Irish Composers?

Given that Albion's Catalogue within the Downloads Section is an Archive of British and Irish Music would it not be sensible to just have the one section Huh

In any case, categorising particular composers by nationality within the British Isles can get very tricky Grin Grin

Iain Hamilton was Scottish in the sense that he was born in Glasgow but he was educated in London and spent his life living in England and the USA. William Wordsworth was English but was educated privately in Scotland and moved to live in the Hghlands for most of his adut life.

Messy.......... Grin Grin

I have just this minute added a catalogue for

Jan Cikker(Slovakia, 1911-89).

It can be found at composers.gulabin.com

I have no problem if this catalogue is cross-posted into the Czech Composers section here Smiley

Could I replicate a similar plea from John(Albion)....

that someone who is still a member of 'Unsung Composers' let the Italian member alberto know that my catalogues are alive and well Huh

Alberto used to go through each and every one with the proverbial fine toothcomb to identify rare cd recordings of pieces of which I was not aware Smiley

Done. Still waiting for his response.  Smiley

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948

New addition to composers.gulabin.com

Giya Kancheli(1935-)

Kancheli is a Georgian and there is no sub-section for Georgians on here. If one ic created then I shall happily copy my catalogue into that section.
