I wonder if anyone knows much about Oleg Eiges? I can find out very little. That his father Konstantin Eiges was also a composer, and has a CD of piano music on the Toccata label. Apparently Oleg composed some 15 symphonies, but the 10th fell foul of the authorities, and his career never recovered. I have heard one short piano sonata of his on YT, which seemed a fine piece. Since we have some experts on Soviet music here, I wondered if anything more could be discovered.
Oleg Eiges has only cd recorded by Toccata Classics a project of recording cd with Glinka's Museum aborted ,his son told me.

Trimurti Berio/Nono/Maderna disliked him and so he is scarcely played and known now.

Out of interest, what is firmly traditional about this piece?  To me it sounds more avant-garde....
Dear Sir
Your assessment is absolutely indifferent to me.
Kindly regards

Arnold on Brass (Conifer).I'm not usually that mad about Brass band music;but this one is great!! Although,the last track (The Padstow Lifeboat) began skipping last night! :( Some light scratches visible. After a clean;I'm hoping it will work! The way the band get all the sonorities,humour and atmosphere of Arnold's music is quite brilliant and fun! Arnold conducts the last track,with the "insistent offkey foghorn (based on the real one at Trevose in Cornwall" (Quote from Gramophone review,which describes it as a stunning aural experience"!) I love the jolly artwork too! Perhaps I should add some more Brass Band music to my collection?! Oh,and I'll have to hear his Symphony for Brass Instruments,won't I?

And.......YES,it played all the way,through! :) Some of the playing is quite thrilling! I love the whistling on one of the tracks! Superb! I wish my mother was still alive to hear this one. She liked Arnold. I remember my parents sitting down to watch a program about him,on BBC2,back in the eighties (or nineties?) expecting some jolly looking man;and being confronted,by,a close up,of this miserable,embittered face,wailing about the disdain of the musical establishment towards his achievement! Of course,my mother knew his music from the jollier,more upbeat works.

Holbrooke next!! :)
Dear cilgwyn
Don't you think that Arnold's dance are highly enyojable? Particularly English and Scottish set.

Swiss music is, in my opinion, shockingly neglected. Quite apart from Fritz Brun (whose music you have done so much you save from disappearance) there are composers like Conrad Beck and Willy Burkhard- to name but two- whose music is largely ignored on cd but who certainly merit recognition.
Dear Dundonnell
 Jean Daetwyler,Bernard Reichel,Otmar Nussio and Renato Grisoni should deserve more attention.
