- Alan Pettersson: Symphony no. 6 with the Norrkoping SO conducted by Christian Lindberg
-Kalevi Aho: Three Interludes for organ, and "Alles Vergangliche", symphony for organ with Jan Lehtola, organ
-Sharon Bezaly: Pipe Dreams (with the Australian Chamber Orchestra conducted by Richard Tognetti)-
-Jose Serebrier: Flute Concerto with Tango

We are not going to get a Hilding Rosenberg symphonic cycle from BIS as long as Robert von Bahr remains in control of his company. Simple as Sad Sad

I wonder what von Bahr has got against Rosenberg? He would appear to fit into the BIS remit! Shocked I presume he just doesn't like his music,full stop! But what about people who do? Who is he? Mussolini! Shocked

No,I think (if you were referring to me,Dundonnell) you detailed it all very clearly & vociferously,in you're days,on the Gmg thread. It just gets a bit to you at times,as you know. You start thinking are cd labels really listening to what we music lovers want,or are they just some kind of self serving & very costly vanity project?! Churning out all the usual suspects to keep themselves afloat & gradually ticking off their own private 'shopping lists' of composers & music,they have always dreamed of hearing,themselves.. Which would explain all those mysterious omissions,in their catalogues,e.g. Bis churning out complete cycles of virtually every important scandinavian symphonist,you can think of,but always,inexplicably,avoiding the influential & highly rated,Rosenberg,in favour of (for example) Alfven & Dag Wiren! And Chandos who mysteriously avoid even answering forum posts,or portions of emails or letters relating to a certain,William Havergal Brian!
Anyway,'nuff' said! Grin
On a personal level,I have to admit I stopped looking at the Bis pre-release lists some time ago! They just don't hold any excitement for me anymore! But,as von Bahr might say,each to his own! Grin

It all boils down to a combination of Money and Taste Grin

What will sell in sufficient quantities (even if small quantities to a niche market) to finance other projects and keep the accountants content (if not exactly happy Grin) Huh

And what does the owner/s of a small or smallish company like Huh

The late Ted Parry of Hyperion liked Robert Simpson's music, ergo.......

Mike Dutton of the eponymous company needs to be persuaded by Lewis Foreman that a composer is "worth" recording.

Burkhard Schmilgun at CPO will get almost anything recorded with a little persuasion and once committed will record everything he can of that composer's music using radio orchestras which have contracts with their musicians which allow them to be used without extra payments. (The idea of recording all the Searle symphonies actually came from the then CEO/MD of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Grin).

The trouble with Rosenberg will be Symphonies Nos. 4 and 5 which require soloists and choruses-they cost more money Roll Eyes  Maybe Klaus Heymann at Naxos has the money required Huh But at the moment he is on a "let's record every single note ever written by Penderecki and Casella" kick (which is no bad thing, I hasten to add, except that Chandos are also on a Casella-spree Grin).

At the end of the day though it really does come back to money Sad
