Is it neglected?  What's your criteria for that?
No one plays Rosner's music and less than a handful of his symphonies are available..



The first part of your statement is-very sadly correct- but there are now four of his eight symphonies on disc and these are the four later, mature symphonies. Nos. 1-4, which have not been recorded, date from 1961-64 when Rosner was a student aged 16-19 years of age.

......and there are plans to record more of Rosner's music, including his very substantial Requiem of 1973.

I understand that the juvenilia work either does not exist (destroyed by composer) or not in a performance state.  It sounded like we'll never get No. 1-4 or the first piano concerto.

Since the earliest orchestral piece included in the List of Compositions on Rosner's website is the Piano Concerto No.2, op.30 (1965) I think that you are almost certainly correct.

I asked the moderator of the website about the early works and that is what he responded.  Surprisingly, he was the composer Carson Cooman.

Thank you for this information.

What this means is that in terms of the music Arnold Rosner wrote for full orchestra, ie excluding music for symphonic band or choral music. the unrecorded works are:

Partita for orchestra, op.33 (1966)
"Perchance to Dream" for orchestra, op.45 (1969)
"A MyLai Elegy" for orchestra, op.51 (1971)
Concerto Grosso No.2 for orchestra, op. 74 (1979)
Consort Music for orchestra, op.80 (1980)
"Transformations" for orchestra, op. 87 (1990)
Variations on a Theme by Frank Martin for orchestra, op. 105 (1996)
Concerto for harpsichord and strings, op. 113 (2000)

These could all be fitted onto two cds Smiley

I was restricting myself to established composers with whose music I am familiar but I ought to have included Rosner.

What is the music of Kevin Puts like?

Re Rosner..his music must be heard more often..it has a very noble elegant quality that makes it very endearing(to me,at least)
