Doesn't get much better than that !

Have you (or others) tried Harmony of the Spheres by Joep Franssens ? 

Recommend it (& the Dutch Composers Channel the link comes from )!

Yes I have, mr. Clive and I agree it is a wonderful work, that even gives more when you listen it for 2nd or 3td time. I got it, I believe, two years ago from a radio performance.

You should also listen to his Concerto Hypnagotique, a piano cto and to 'Rising Phenix', a work for chorus and orch.

These two were recently on Youtube

Love it too.

Met Joep Franssens only once, about 15 years ago in Rotterdam, when he attended a Peteris Vasks Festival and he and Vasks met there too. Memories.  Smiley

Now...I'm easily caught out, but : Concerto Hypnagogique I can find, but by Joey Roukens.
 Rising Phoenix doesn't ring a bell, which most modern choir works do nowadays, & I can't find it on YT at all !
Will be very happy to be wrong about both !

Glad I'm not the only one with a liking for Franssens - can add Vasks (& Roukens) to that too, + sooooo many others. We've truly a blessed 'hobby' here, if only we can keep abreast of things !

***Update - found Phenix - it's Roukens again !

I listened yesterday and last night to Rachmaninoff's 3 symphonies, 4 piano concertos and even the arrangement of Sym no. 2 for pf and orch. It was odd that I found symphony No. 3 to seem almost new to me, wondered how I had not listened to it enough when I first found classical music (40+ years ago) to hear familiar themes as I did all the rest. My favorites (this go around) were Symphony No. 1 and Pf Cto No. 4. I have a few pieces that make me start waving my arms and almost crying and Sym no. 1 does that to me with the first mvt. Always was mad at Glazunov for destroying the first performance (and Cui for reviewing it hellishly) in a way that sent Sergei to a hypnotist/counselor, sad that he never got to hear a good performance of it before he died. Also sad that the 4th piano concerto which he himself felt good about never gained the popularity for him that his No. 2 and No. 3 did. Glad he went to the hypnotist counselor, though! Really good performance of pf cto No. 4 on youtube by Botinis and Yuri Favorin.

Mr. Clive,

My fault, of course the ones I mentioned are by Joey Roukens. Another composer who has my attention

Holmboe's Vol 4 on the Dacapo label Complete Chamber Concertos.... by the way I read about the mass of manuscripts kept by Paul von Klenau's granddaughter that were recently turned over by her Estate to the Danish National Library,  which included several symphonic pieces.   Plans were to publish the scores and perhaps record these either by Danacord or Dacapo.

I discovered today the bizarrely named Melcher Melchers, born Henrik Svensson. I thought I knew my Swedish late-romantic composers, but I never heard of this one before. Definitely deserves to be heard. First and second piano concertos are available on YT, plus a symphony.

This raises a question. I haven't checked, but it wouldn't surprise me if the YT recordings I was listening to were ripped from a commercial CD. One at least was from a Swedish Radio broadcast (the announcer's voice comes on at the end), but this might have been a broadcast of a CD.

Do we have a policy here not to link to YT items known to be ripped from CDs?

no I think that is YTs responsibility... I do see a lot of YT's that say "content removed due to copyright"  or "due to owner's request"
