'Live' listening this evening - Henri du Mont Motets & Charpentier Te Deum at the Valletta (Malta) International Baroque Festival....& more tomorrow, with Bach cantatas and VCs.
Can't beat the live experience, or some of Valletta's centuries-old churches as venues !

Alexander Lokshin symphonies (No. 6 was never performed), another victim of Zhdanov, wrote film music to survive.

Um...just looked up what I think I have of Lokshin....& it appears to include Symphony 6, which in my version starts with a bass(?) soloist.
Dunno...you tell me - is that right ?


Lokshin Symphony no 6 is on YouTube - and it does indeed start with a bass soloist.  It's on a channel called "Aleksandr Lokshin".  I'm listening to it now, and it's exciting stuff.

Mozart operas for the last two days! I prefer the older recordings for the singers they used to have. I just finished listening to Beecham's recording of Die entführung aus dem serail. I've got the 'fat box' edition with the bloke with the turban (or whatever it is?) on his head,by the way. I'm going to put on Karajan's emi recording of Cosi fan tutte next,in glorious mono next!! One for Elisabeth Schwarzkopf fans. I'll put on the stereo Bohm on,then. Also with Schwarzkopf. Apparently there are some people who don't enjoy her singing?!! Grin I went through a couple of Die zauberflöte recordings the other day. I particularly enjoyed the Beecham,Böhm and Solti recordings.

Ah - corroborative evidence; thanks - had no idea where my download was from !    Yup, so many Lokshin symphonies have singers, which to me is (nearly !) always an improvement - this does make a fine sound !

 Hello djarvie,

Very pleased you found Lokshin's 6th symphony.
It was the missing symphony in my collection of the symphonies of this fine composer


Thanks for sharing,

Playing Joseph Marx again and again. 'Debussy', say most comments, but in honest: I don't think so.

Lokshin - nice that some discussion leads to a happy resolution !

So, tonight, following a kind 'steer' on another thread, Klami 'Psalmus' Oratorio; then, since they happen to follow on in this section of my download collection, Peter Klatzow Marimba Concerto, & Dmitri Klebanov Symphony no. 1 'Babi Yar'.

today's its Sergey Taneyev's String Quartets..... Naxos finally has completed their cycle with the Carpe Diem SQ.  I just picked up the vol 5.   Sure do miss those Tower Records days... when I used to drop in there and pick up a handful of new releases...Sad

Hoddinott's Fourth Symphony on cordless headphones. I downloaded this from here and put it on a cd-r (with David Wynne's third). I expected something pretty dour ang gruelling,judging from some of the posts at the GMG forum. Surprise! This is fantastic. My attention was caught right from the start.Full of thrilling,colourful,exciting orchestration. It feels so full of energy at times. Power packed,I call it! (I love the dark,sombre way it opens) Indeed,I couldn't find anything particularly forbidding here. Although,I'll admit,it's not exactly Eric Coates!! Grin Why isn't this on cd?!! Huh Roll Eyes If it isn't,it should be!! Sad Angry
Come on bis...Chandos...Dutton!!!
