… 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

What, all four? I couldn't do that. I listen to one, and then I need some time to digest and reflect. Maybe I'll come back to the next the following day.

reading about Magnard's tragic end (at age 49) "marauding German soldiers in WW1 (1914) shot him while he was defending his house at Baron-sur-Oise, France; the house was burned down and flames consumed a large amount of his manuscripts."

just got in the mail today Janis Ivanovs new CD release: Concerto for Piano and Orchestra/Sym 14/ Sym 20.   This is a new issue from LMIC/SKANI.  It comes with a nice 56 page booklet with lots of photos in a paper cardboard jewelcase.  They are selling these now on amazon.co.uk   These are prior recordings remastered from the 1970s and 80s.  These are probably limited issues.

Zara Levina new release piano concertos, had the first one over 30 years ago (still here, though I can't play it anymore) in a Melodiya LP boxset, have always loved them, hope others get to hear them and pay some overdue respect to this wonderful composer.

Without access to the new release, very hard to find anything apart from a YT 1st PC...nothing else 'substantial' on Classical Music Online.

Going to enjoy tonight, with a warm fire & a glass of something, a few of the works 'discovered' today on YT. Started out with a little 'steer' from CMO, & developed, randomly but very pleasantly, from that, which is on now to start the evening.
Marcel Dupre- Cortege & Litany for organ & orchestra
Artin Poturlian - Violin Concerto
Narong Prangcharoen - 'Endless Tear' for voice & orchestra
Elliott Gyger - Piano Concerto 'From Joyous Leaves'
Amos Elkana- Clarinet Concerto 'Tru'a'
Seth Custer - Nocturne          .........ideal before bed !

Well, listening to Graham Lerch's 2nd symphony, I stopped after 20 seconds. It was a synthetic one. I can not listen to them. In stead I placed Brahms's 3td symphony on the turntable.

Ah...Langgaard complete syms.: not sure I could do them back to back, but much pleasure to be found!

Don't know Radzynski's sym., only got the cello Concerto. Is it worth pursuing?

Also don't know if anyone reads (or has any time for!) my little concert lists. If they lead someone to discover something appealing, that's great - otherwise, rather a wasted effort.
For now, at least, here's this evening's, again all recent 'discoveries'.

Jess Langston Turner - 'Reanimations' for 2 trumpets & wind ensemble
Wang Chenwei - Pipa Concerto 'Rama'
Petar Stajic - Symphony no. 4
Florent Schmitt - Oriane et le Prince d'Amour
Hector Quintanar - Piano Concerto
Henryk Gorecki - O Domina Nostra........choral work before bed - always nice !
