Sad that the only way unsung composers works can get recorded and in the market is thru funding in this manner.... at least the listeners have a mechanism to make this happen!!

One could argue we live in good times that such obscure works by obscure composers are recorded these days because of innovative funding techniques reducing the investment risk otherwise we would only hear Beethoven and Mozart re-recordings.  I've had the fortune to listen to works by composers so obscure, I didn't even know I wanted to hear them.

Cry all this uninteresting british stuff - where are the new Mahler, Bruckner, Sibelius, Shostakovich etc. cycles HuhHuhHuhHuh?

Hehe. We need at least another four Beethoven cycles played on modern, future, period and faux-period instruments. Then there's always room for a few more Schumann cycles re-imagined respectively for piano seven-and-a-half-hands, kitchen utensils and swanee whistle.  Tchaikovsky No.1 and Grieg played by a blind-folded chimpanzee accompanied by Gergiev or Pappano and a top-flight orchestra would get my vote as well...


oh yes we need another Beethoven or Mozart symphony cycle please.......

Meanwhile, as evidence that useful things can be done on a low budget, I hope this disc of songs by Cowen has not been overlooked:
