1  MEMBERS' CORNER / Members' wish lists & requests / Request for Recording: Helmut Barbe - Canticum Simeonis on: June 22, 2020, 02:08:19 pm
I am trying to locate a recording of a piece called Canticum Simeonis by the German composer, Helmut Barbe. I performed this piece in college many years ago. I used to have a vinyl recording that had this piece on it, but the record became unplayable.

If anyone has this album, I am wondering if they could digitize just the Barbe piece and perhaps share it on YouTube? The vinyl record has been long out of print.

Svoboda is best known in the percussion community for his Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra, which was written for and performed by Neil DePonte of the Oregon Symphony.

Speaking of Gubaidulina .... in 2012, I saw the US premiere of a piece of hers called Labryinth, for 12 solo cellos. It was quite good, but I haven't been able to find a recording of it anywhere. If anyone has a line on a recording, would you let me know? Thanks.

I started with his symphonies, namely numbers 2 and 3. You can also find a copy of a radio broadcast of Symphony No. 5 on YouTube.

Thanks, Dundonnell. You have certainly done great work in spreading the word of Soderlind and Haug in numerous forums. Hopefully the massive reach of Facebook will draw even more Soderlind fans together.

I often have my doubts about Facebook too. But it's very easy to create a page or a group on Facebook, you don't have to worry about website hosting companies, and there is already a large number of groups that cater to classical music fans. So, I figured that this was a good way to get a bit more recognition for Soderlind.

Sometimes, i feel like I am a one-man marketing company for Ragnar Soderlind and Halvor Haug  Grin

I just created a Facebook page that is devoted to Norwegian composer Ragnar Soderlind. In my opinion, Ragnar (and Halvor Haug) are two composers that deserve wider recognition, especially outside of Norway. If you are a fan of Soderlind, please feel free to Like and contribute material to this new page. It is located here:

And, furthermore, a program devoted to Soderlind
12  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Individual composers / Re: Ragnar Soderlind(1945-) on: June 16, 2016, 11:13:12 am
And, to top it off, a show devoted to Halvor Haug ! This includes a live performance of his String Quartet.

I just found this. NRK has made some of their old video archives available recently, and it seems that Soderlind wrote some incidental music for a Norwegian TV show.
14  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / YouTube performances / YouTube, Obscure Composers, and Andras Szollosy on: May 17, 2016, 04:23:20 pm
I was pleasantly surprised this morning when I went to YouTube and looked up two of my favorite composers, Andras Szollosy and Halvor Haug. I found recordings by each of the composers that originally appeared on CDs that I own.

For example, here is the Andras Szollosy topic on YouTube. The music seems to have been seeded by Hungaraton itself. There are also links to other Hungarian composers that have been published by Hungaraton:

Are the record companies now contributing music to YouTube that is now out-of-print? Is this becoming a standard practice with classical record companies? If so, then I hope that Supraphon and Electrecord will start to upload some of their catalog that is out-of-print.

Two pieces of Soderlind-related news.

1) Someone just posted a live radio broadcast of Soderlind's 4th symphony on YouTube. here is the link:

I am hoping that Mr. Stuart will consider making an MP3 or FLAC available to the Soderlind fans here.

2) Looks like the Bergen Philharmonic released a CD with a new Soderlind composition on it. The composition in called "Horns in Landscape", and is for 6 horns and orchestra.

Here is a link where you can listen to some samples and buy the tracks:
