1  MEMBERS' CORNER / Members' wish lists & requests / Re: Zvonimir Ciglič (1921-2006, Slovenia) on: February 06, 2019, 11:40:01 pm
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

http://www.mediafire.com/file/3p7abzjgslwp4ap/Prodowski_Db_Conc.mp3
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):
http://www.polmic.pl/index.php?option=com_mwosoby&id=749&view=czlowiek&litera=18&Itemid=5&lang=pl
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.
8  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / 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 http://www.filarmonia.org/radio.aspx . 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.

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:
http://erb.nlib.ee/?kid=21152901
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...
11  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / 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): http://www.filarmonia.org/radio.aspx
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.
12  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: Greek Symphonic and Opera works on: November 09, 2014, 10:44:45 pm
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.
13  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: Stepan Sulek: Symphonies on: November 09, 2014, 10:33:15 pm
For any of you who might hesitate to acquire the CD set because they already have copies of radio broadcasts of each of the eight symphonies, I cannot encourage you enough to go ahead. Even though some of the recordings in the Cantus box are 'historic', the sound quality is often nothing short of revelatory. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the whole set again and again since I received it, particularly symphonies Nos. 4 and 8.

It is on a 2 CD set called Estonian Orchestral Music 1896-2004  published by EMIK 2005.   Since its a current release on CD, would be a copyright violation.

Sorry, I had not checked this page for some time  Embarrassed
I thought that the CD set only included one movement from Ilves's 2nd Symphony. And if it also features Lemba's 2nd, I definitely need to buy it!

This composer was totally unknown to me. I no I shood haf done spelt it rite, especially since I assume Andrea is femail and we all needs to moore "gender sensitive" deese dayz. I may have been thinkin Taboolie.

Mistake - it's the Italian equivalent of Andrew. I remember a meeting where a speaker referred to an Italian friend of mine called Andrea as "she", whereupon he stood up (he was in the audience), jabbed his finger at his chin, and called out, "I have a beard!".
If it was confusing others, I would have changed my first name to remove all doubts..but I am not famous..
It is always unwise to add a pinch of salt to an already tasty dish, but let me try it all the same.
Italians have a point here. After all, Andrew, Andrea, André, Andris and all this kind of names probably come from "andros", ancient Greek word for man (as opposed to woman, while "anthropos" is the human being in general).
However, the safest is to remember that there are some national variants here. So, as a rule:
Andrea from Italy is a man,
Andrea from Hungary is a woman,
Andreea from Romania is a woamn (mind the double "e"),
André from France is a man, and Andrée a woman,
Elfrida Andree from Sweden was a woman, but then, Andree was her surname  Grin
