The aim of this little book is much less to offer criticism than to give information.

IMHO better Krebs

I know there's a recording of Knussen's subsequently withdrawn first symphony floating around out there somewhere.  Seeing as I seem to be on a bit of a Knussen kick I wonder if anybody has a copy they'd be willing to upload?

Many thanks!


Hoping it works

Thanks to Toby Esterhase for this splendid Missa O Pulchritudo, which I did not know.

The Symphonic poem in 3 parts The Apocalypse is magnificent, too

Sadly still underrated

I have to congratulate this compatriot who had the courage to confront Tolkien translated
song of Barrow downs
I must apologize for using the term Tumulilande but the translation of Tolkien who invented his own language in Italian is particularly difficult

Great forgetfulness from me,animated film of 1978 was Bakshi's masterwork and it is truly a pity that it has not been followed up,Rosenman's soundtrack is one of 70's best where the techniques of the musical avant-garde integrated with those of the great classical tradition were used effectively

I must say that making the beauty and complexity of the novel on the screen is an arduous undertaking in particular it is very difficult to mark the difference between the first volume, fairytale and similar to "the Hobbit" and the remaining two with a historical and epic tone
I saw the film when it first came out and was puzzled that it ended 2/3 of the way through the book (did they run out of money?) The soundtrack was very good and I snapped up the CD.

unfortunately it did not achieve the commercial success it deserved

I saw the film as a kid and remember it was very, very weird.  Mixed live action footage with animation and an incomplete story.  What were they thinking?  Clearly it ran out of money and the producers didn't care.
Ralph Bakhshi is a great animator neverthless also Jackson's movie cut many important thing as Tumulinande

obviously  columnist's opinions do not necessarily coincide with my personal ones.IMHO too broad topics are taken into consideration and treated briefly there is no careful research on profoundly different historical periods and phenomena

Kabalevski was one of the greatest Soviet composers for piano
