1  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: Léon Boëllmann: Symphony and Symphonic Variations on Fuga Libera on: June 03, 2021, 04:47:08 pm
I have been trying to see a score of this for years, in order to get the tempo for the Intermède variée movement. Is this information provided in the CD booklet?

Those liner notes are perfectly comprehensible to anybody who knows how to take newly made up German words and convert them to their English translations.

Just like Litolff's Concerto Symphonique No. 1

I take it that his lost piano concerto was in his library when it was destroyed. How did its destruction come about?
5  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / General musical discussion / Re: Conductor James Levine dies, aged 77 on: March 29, 2021, 12:49:34 am
The sad thing is, that 39 years ago or so, in 1982, when I was working at the Tower Records Classical Annex on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, CA, I heard about this, and just blew it off. All of the employees but me and one of my fellow store clerks were gay, and apparently, some of them had East Coast friends and relations, especially the assistant manager. Even way back then, he told me that Levine had a reputation in the gay community, not just for cruising the streets of NYC and picking up street hustlers of color, but actually brutally beating them up, either as part of or after the sexual activities; some pretty horrific stuff. At the time, I just thought they were rumors, but apparently he wasn't just pulling my leg. And somebody/bodies pretty high up must have been running interference for him for a long time. He was lucky he didn't kill one of those kids, and it's a distinct possibility that maybe he did. Ah, well, all I can say is Gesualdo.
6  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Re: Rubbra’s early Piano Concerto in A minor, op30 on: March 26, 2021, 01:38:51 am
Not to get too far off-topic, but while we're on the subject of newly found withdrawn early concertos, are there any plans for the recently rediscovered d'Albert A minor concerto?

Welcome back! Your absence, especially in these times had me, personally, greatly concerned.
8  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: Emile-Robert Blanchet on: March 10, 2021, 08:49:41 am
I believe YouTube has a performance of his Konzertstück for piano and orchestra with Clara Haskil as soloist.

Is this the New World (old #5, new #9) or the actual #5 (old #3)?
10  MEMBERS' CORNER / Miscellany / Re: Those who strayed from the (conventional) path... on: February 02, 2021, 12:23:35 pm
Let us not forget Eugen d'Albert of the six wives.
11  MEMBERS' CORNER / Miscellany / Re: What's in a (middle) name? on: February 01, 2021, 11:46:49 am
I always go by the caps. I treat d'Albert or de Greef as Albert or Greef. Same with van or von. Beethoven is Beethoven, and Bronsart is Bronsart. Hyphenated names are alphabetized by the first one, thus, Znosko-Borosky is under 'Z'.
12  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Video broadcasts / Re: Catoire Symphonic Poem "Mytsri", Op. 13 (1899) on: January 31, 2021, 02:31:05 pm
Why do you call it his Piano Concerto No. 1? As far as I know, he didn't even attempt another.

Sorry, Jim, entirely my mistake. The perils of late-night posting in a dimly-lit room, I'm afraid: my eyes couldn't even focus on the CD cover...

 Roll Eyes Cheesy

Dang! I thought we had stumbled across a major discovery!

I just recently heard a performance of his Nonet on the local radio out here in Charlotte (WDAV out of Davidson College) and was wowed by a work that he composed when he was all of 18.
15  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / General musical discussion / Re: A recording wishlist on: January 27, 2021, 02:21:17 am
Well, if this isn't just a British wishlist, I'd like to plump for a recording of a (naturalized) American cello concerto - the Concerto Fantastico for cello of Charles Martin Loeffler.
