Symphonies 1, 3, 5 and 6  of Danish Composer Svend Erik Tarp ( 1908-1994)

His works are similar in some ways to Nielsen, but also are flavored by the French composers such as  Les 6.  The sources are radio broadcasts, dates unknown.
(Repost from UC...)
MP3s, 192 kps.

From the Collection of Karl Miller.

Symphony 1 “Sinfonia Divertante”
Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra
Ole Schmidt, Conductor

Symphony 3 “Sinfonia quasi una Fantasia”
South Jutland Symphony Orchestra
Carl Von Garaguly, Conductor

Symphony 5
Aaalborg City Orchestra
Erilling Schröder, Conductor



Sven Erik Tarp Symphony 6
Aarhus City Orchestra
Aksel Wellejus, Conductor

Radio broadcast.  Note - the last "movement" is really the radio outro.

MP3, 192 kps.  Not commercially released

As I recall, Tarp was very popular on UC, and Third Symphony is one of my favorite 20th century symphonies.


Bio from Dacapo Records
Svend Erik Tarp was among those Danish composers who were closer to French musical culture than to the dominant influence from Germany. In a string of sparkling, diverting works, not least the popular Piano Concerto in C major, he spoke up in the 1930s for a different modernist direction than the German-inspired one that dominated the new Danish music of the period. Tarp composed a total of ten symphonies. While maintaining a certain connection with Carl Nielsen, Tarp's music exhibits striking rhythms and linearity, but usually with a determination to appeal to the wider audience. In the late orchestral works the lines are longer and the seriousness greater than in the early, more chamber-music-like works. Tarp also wrote operas, piano music, didactic pieces and in particular much chamber music and film music. Svend Erik Tarp held a number of administrative posts in the musical world, and for many years this stole time from his creative activities. On the other hand he continued to compose at an advanced age, although because of his weakened sight he had to have practical assistance with his last symphony.

Thanks for the uploads of Tarp's Symphonies. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Symphony No.3 and your upload is a different performance than the one I have and in better sound. Do you have Symphonies Nos.4 & 9?

Best,
Frank

As the member of this forum who has been advocating the music of Paul von Klenau for some time I am absolutely delighted that shamus has provided a recording of the premiere of von Klenau's recently discovered choral Ninth Symphony Smiley

These are of course the only two major Tarp orchestral works committed to disc by Dacapo. I would have thought that if that company is looking for a new project, post-the Riisager series, they could do a lot worse than go for Tarp.

There is also Niels Viggo Bentzon...but, with 24 symphonies, he is almost certainly too daunting Sad

Bentzon was very prolific in all genres, but I find his music extremely rewarding - he was no note-spinner. It would be a great shame if the volume of his works were to deter anyone from performing/recording his music.

I am presently listening to the 3rd symphony by Leif Kayser and it is a glorious epic work that should be much better known. Kayser wrote 4 symphonies and they are worth every penny for the two volume set. This music has overwhelming power and grandeur and it is unfortunate that not much of it is here because it is only on commercial cd.......but if anyone knows of any concerts, please post them..

KAYSER samples here

Remember that if you have a subscription to the Naxos website you can also listen to Dacapo CDs there. I was listening to a few of Bentzon's piano sonatas yesterday.

Regarding Paul von Klenau's 9th Symphony, the 8 movements of the BC performance uploaded here by Shamus as one whole have been individually uploaded (with Movement titles/tempos provided) on the Unsung Composers site.
