The piece posted yesterday by Admin was written in 1985. Its Latvian title is "Dvēseles ceļi" (The Roads of the Soul) and the text is by Kenins's father, poet, lawyer and politician Atis Ķeniņš (1874-1961).

Well, I don't know if SBookman is "still looking for recordings of this piece," but I think it would be great to post it!
I have just done it, in the Slovenian Music folder.

Are you still looking for recordings of this piece?

Works by all of these composers and more are gradually being shared on YouTube by the BosanskoHercegovački kompozitori channel. It would be indeed great to hear more.

In the meantime, the second chamber concerto has been posted on YouTube, but I remain very eager to hear the rest. And I learnt about the existence of a fifth symphony which, from what I have read, might be the greatest of all.

Prodowski, Stefan Boleslaw [1902-1967]

Double Bass Concerto, Jurek Dybal (double bass), Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Ruben Silva (conductor)

Broadcast BBC Radio 3 October 29 2016
As discussed with calyptorhynchus, the Radio 3 programme probably mixed the composer's name up a little bit. This is certainly the Double Bass Concerto by Stefan Bolesław Poradowski, completed in 1929. A note about him can be found here (no English version available):
and his Eighth symphony can be heard on YouTube, it may have been posted here before.

Concerning Jānis Kalniņš's violin concerto, it is clear from the recording that its tonality is F sharp minor rather than F minor.

Thanks, RK, for the Janis Kalnins Violin Concerto. I am a big fan of Latvian music and was unaware that this recording existed.

Kalnins is a very interesting and somewhat enigmatic composer for me
I have found his music to be quite uneven, but when he is good he is great..The Volin concerto is a wonderful work..
I finally acquired the CD of his Symphony of the Beatitudes (originally composed with texts in English, and later adapted for a Latvian version), with "The brethren cemetery" and the better-known New Brunswick Rhapsody. The symphony's originality is not immediately striking, however it is certainly worth investigating in more depth.
Actually, Jānis Kalniņš, from the only few works I've heard of his, puzzles me less than the much better-known Imants Kalniņš, whose music includes some very striking moments (in his frontal, almost provocative directness) alongside many whose substance I still fail to grasp.
10  Various types of music / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Peruvian orchestral music on: July 25, 2015, 04:28:54 pm
Although the programmes of Peru's classical radio Filarmonía are very prone to last-minute change, one cannot ignore the following, scheduled for Tuesday 28 August. Times are PET (Lima), identical to CDT in the United States (Houston, Chicago), or BST -6 (London), or CEST -7 (Paris, Berlin...).

The URL for live listening is . Once the radio window opens, you still need to press the "play" button.

I am particularly keen on hearing the symphony (the Third, from 1974) by Rodolfo Holzmann, a German-born composer who spent most of his career in Peru.

Jorge Bravo de Rueda (Perú)
Virgenes del Sol ,para flauta y cuerdas
José Bernardo Alcedo (Perú)
La chicha, canzoneta peruana
Mariano Melgar (Perú)
Delirio, yaraví
Carlos Sánchez Málaga (Perú)
Te Seguiré, huayno
Armando Guevara Ochoa (Perú)
Feria andina
Armando Guevara Ochoa (Perú)
Festejo N° 1 para cuarteto de cuerdas
Rodolfo Holzmann (Alemania)
Sinfonía “Huánuco”
Gioachino Antonio Rossini (Italia)
Obertura de la ópera “El barbero de Sevilla”
Charles Camille Saint-Saëns (Francia)
Habanera para violín y orquesta Op.83
Juan de Dios Aguirre Choqueconsa (Perú)
Saqsaywaman, poema evocativo
Claudio Rebagliati (Perú)
Rapsodia peruana, un 28 de julio en Lima

If anyone reads this and has the capacity to record the broadcast and share it on this forum, it would be fantastic.

Another excellent and somewhat enigmatic czech composer is Kardos,Dezider(1914-1991)
a couple of his symphonies are on utube. Strange and compelling misc IMHO. not to be missed
Kardoš was actually Slovak (Hungarian speaking I suppose). The 6th symphony and Slovakofonia are more persuasive to my ears than the 7th, even though the latter builds on a powerful basis.

Here are the detailed contents of the EMIK 2-CD set mentioned by dhibbard:
Ilves's 2nd symphony being in two parts, and the second part being available elsewhere, it would thus be complete. On the other hand, we still need a recording of Lemba's 2nd...

While every music-lover curious about Latin American music may be familiar with his name, probably fewer have had a chance to actually hear any of his eight symphonies, although a MIDI rendition of the spiky and pastiche-like Bourrée of his Third can be found on YouTube.

Luis Humberto Salgado Torres (1903-1977)
Symphony No. 7 in E minor, dedicated to Beethoven (1969-70)
Adagio sostenuto; allegro con anima - Adagio sostenuto - Allegro ma non troppo - Allegro maestoso
Orquesta Sinfónica de Guayaquil / David Harutyunyan

Broadcast by Radio Filarmonía (Peru) earlier today. Quite a substantial and interesting piece.
14  Various types of music / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Luis H. Salgado's Seventh symphony on: January 31, 2015, 03:04:05 pm
Not to be missed, Peruvian classical music radio Filarmonía shall broadcast three pieces by Ecuadorian composers performed by the Guayaquil Symphony Orchestra conducted by David Harutyunyan, on Wednesday 4 February at 10am PET (Lima time), 4pm CET. Watch out particularly for the Seventh of Salgado's eight symphonies.
The station can be heard live through this link (start manually by pressing the Play button):
I may not be able to record this broadcast, but if anyone else manages to do so, it would be great to post it here.

Ah... Unfortunate that I didn't see this before (which would have not been sufficient anyway). The giant CD-box dedicated to works by Greek composers of the 19th and 20th centuries, released in the framework of the Cultural Olympiad, is very enlightening and would deserve a sequel indeed.
