3  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: Vladigerov Piano Concertos 1-5 on: September 12, 2020, 03:59:52 pm
Presto Classical has announced that the Capriccio label will be releasing on 4th September a 3CD set of all five of Vladigerov's Piano Concertos, with various pianists, conducted by Vladigerov's son Alexander.   The recordings were apparently made in the 1970s, but a chance to hear all five of them has to be good news.
Some time ago, Toccata Classics announced the PCs as being 'in the pipeline', but that announcement has disappeared, so I guess that this Capriccio issue is the best we are likely to get for the foreseeable future . . .

Thanks to Sir for this incredible thing. Great music!

Worth noting, to avoid any confusion, that Pēteris Vasks is Latvian, not Lithuanian.  Still Baltic of course.
Correct, though Vasks was forced - because of his father, who was a church minister in Soviet times - to study and work in neighbouring Lithuania. He's fluent in Lithuanian and has his circle of friends in Vilnius since then.

Good to learn!
7  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / General musical discussion / Re: Simpson and Walton's 70th birthday. on: May 20, 2020, 09:26:33 pm
Actually six composers deliver a one minute 'Happy Birthday' piece, No. 5 being Robert Simpson's, starting at 09:25 - and doing what you remembered he did.
8  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Individual composers / Re: Stanley Bate (1911-1959) on: May 10, 2020, 12:47:54 pm
I love his music, especially symphonies 3, 4 and the Viola and PC concerto No.2.
He definitely deserves the epithet of 'undeservedly neglected'. I consider his Third Symphony, in particular, to be a major contribution to 20th century symphonic music.

Agree with every word, here. Played both the Third Symphony and second piano concerto recently, and was stunned again. First class composer, should be far better known.

IMHO an unprecented approach to Norwegian folklore beautifully played by Karelian orchestra.
Great tip, many thanks! Found some music by him - and an interview - on Youtube.
11  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / General musical discussion / Re: What are you listening to today? on: October 25, 2018, 09:48:32 am

The Blue Bird
Norfolk Rhapsody No. 1
Norfolk Rhapsody No. 2
David Matthews: Norfolk March [=Norfolk Rhapsody No. 3]
Variations for Orchestra
Music for an EFDS Masque
Christmas Overture

The 16 minutes score of the incidental music to Maeterlinck's play The Blue Bird (1913) one that isn't even mentioned in Michael Kennedy's Catalogue; and a very welcome surprise it is!
12  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: More Braga Santos on Naxos on: August 09, 2018, 08:55:09 pm
Great news indeed. Still, there's enough orchestral music left to hope for yet another CD:

Elegia tragica (1943)
Paisajem, symphonic poem Op. 22 (1952)
Canção, Op. 23 (from the film Chaimite) (1955)
Ruinas do Carmo, symphonic poem Op. 33 (1961)
Otonifonias. suite for brass band Op. 50 (1977)

What about the freedom of speech in this Forum?
Freedom of speech has a well defined function: make meaningful contributions to the public debate. Random prejudices and bad taste do not. Ruth Gipps is a very fine composer and her Fourth Symphony nothing less than a masterpiece. You better first form an opinion before you post one.  Cheesy
14  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / General musical discussion / Re: New website of the Tubin Society on: June 07, 2018, 08:10:22 am
Eduard Tubin and his re-enternment to Estonia, which actually happened today.
Really? Where's his grave now?
15  INTRODUCTION & FAQs / Greetings / Re: Is this excellent forum 'dying' ? on: June 07, 2018, 08:08:39 am
I enjoy this forum but it's a little like communicating with someone on the outer fringes of the Solar System - you post a message and, if you're lucky, get a response several weeks later.
 Cool
Black hole calling!  Cheesy
