Belarussian composers from Classical-Onlinehttp://classic-online.ru/, have to sign in, go to "country" and many countries listed with pictures of composers where available. Translates easily with google, though doesn't always make sense!
Abelovich Sym no. 3, Aladov Sinfonietta, Wagner pf cto, ctino with folk orchestra, etc.

good selection there Shamus.... wish we had more to pick from under Belarus... he has several there including lots of Melodiya.. I remember a few years ago I sent a contrib and got access without the wait time, so I could download several selections.  Wish we had Abelovich's Sym 1 and Aladov's Symphonies 1-9.

Mr. Gauk - was wondering what to put on for a rainy evening in England: will 'go Croatian', & start with Sulek 2 with your 'notes'.
Then Davor Bobic - Oboe Concerto, Milko Kelemen - 'Drammatico' for Cello & orchestra....& as so often something sacred/sung to finish: Dragan Filipovic 'Dona Eis Requiem'.

For Croatian music, don't neglect Ivo Maček (1914-2002). He wrote mostly chamber and piano works, but they are worth a listen.

Thanks, Mr. Gauk. Not a name I have any examples from, but afraid I'm not clever enough to appreciate much chamber/solo work...need a sweeping canvas that this small brain can get to grips with !

Saving another post, going to tack tonight's listening on here. Ladies...followed by gentlemen tonight:
Ylva Q. Arkvik - Vox Pacis
Tera De Marez Oyens - Accordion Concerto
Joanna Bruzdowicz - Violin Concerto 'The Cry of the Phoenix'
Walter Ross - Trombone Concerto no. 1
Roger Calmel - Requiem a la Memoire de Marie Antoinette

todays offering is the new CD of Eino Tamberg Symphony no 4  and then the Ballet-Symphony Op 10 that originally appeared on early Melodiya  (D mono series).  These are recent CD releases from the Estonian Music Info Center.  Sometimes I have to listen to Tamberg and Silvestrov to appreciate music!

Decided it had been long enough since I had listened to the piano concertos of Lalo, Massenet, Pierne, Alkan and JaŽll and plan to move on to the St. Saens (all 5) and whomever else I can find from that era, any suggestions? I am always so satisfied by these revisitations, after all the browsing for the new and "unknown" (to me at least), the beauty of these works makes me (almost) give up on the pursuit of the yet-unheard holy grail. Maybe I have already found it and just don't know it. It would be interesting to know which piano concertos stay with other people on the forum long after the first hearing. I think of somewhat less than mainstream Pfitzner, Stenhammar No. 2, Henselt, Rheinberger, Goetz, for myself and of course I could go on and on. Anyway, it's all good, as the young folks say.

An interesting and very little-known piano concerto of that generation is the Tcherepnin concerto - not by Alexander, whose five PCs I much admire, especially the second, but by his father Nikolai. It's in one movement, like the Rimsky-Korsakov one, and dominated by a four-note motif announced at the opening by the orchestra. I snipped off that one bar and use it as a ringtone for incoming text messages on my can't-tell-you.

   oh what a great idea!  think I will do the same for my eye telephone .    Yes, Nikolai, student of Rimsky... wrote some great piano works.   I believe there is only one recording of that concerto on CD  ??       https://www.amazon.com/Russian-Piano-Concertos-Alexi-Golovin/dp/B00008FATQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1496848859&sr=8-2&keywords=nikolai+tcherepnin+piano+concerto

Well, searching for some inspiration for an evening's listening, so decided to have a concert by 'Nikolai'...or equivalent.

Nikolai Tchaikin - Bayan Concerto
Nicholas Maw - Ghost Dances
Nico Muhly - Cello Concerto
Nicolas Flagello - Dante's Farewell
Nicolas Bacri - Concerto Luminoso 'L'Ete'
Nikolai Sidelnikov - Cantata 'Sacred Conversations'

This is very weird. In my last post the word i_p_h_o_n_e (without the underscores) was replaced by "can't-tell-you". What gives?
