It does remind me of Glière's ballet music, specifically The red poppy and The bronze horseman - at least in some numbers.
Thanks for your offering, but I'm afraid I am rather far from London (South America, as a matter of fact).

This is beautiful music indeed. Somehow, it reminded me of Glière's ballet music.

Thank you so much to Stefan (Carpaccio.Espagnol) for his youtube channel of Ukrainian music.  I particularly liked the recording by violinist Abram Shtern of the Adagio of Mavka and Lukash from Song of the Forest ballet by Mykhailo Skorulskyi (1887-1950). So I have converted it to mp3; and I also did some digging around and found some more youtube clips, all recordings of live performances of the ballets. I have also converted these to mp3 and put in the downloads section.  Lovely harmonious atmospheric music, with hints of Khachaturian (who was actually 17 years younger).

Could you please indicate the right order for the complete Song of the Forests ballet?
Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Symphony No. 1 op. 16;

Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra
Frank Beermann

Symphonies Rich in Innovations
Edvin Kallstenius studied the natural sciences prior to receiving musical
training from Stephan Krehl in Leipzig from 1904 to 1907. He was a music
critic and from 1928 to 1946 served as the Swedish Radio music archivist in
Stockholm. Additionally, he was a member of the executive board of the
Swedish Society of Composers from 1933 to 1961 and of the Copyright
Association from 1932 to 1957. Although as a composer he admired both the
sublime and the lyrical Beethoven and was of the opinion that the old forms
still had much to say, he filled these old forms with his unique harmonic
designs and his own personal content. Throughout his life he held to a
personal style that was rigorous but rich in innovations. He avoided rigid
commitment to a monolithic tonal language by resorting to melodic intensity
reinforced by harmonic expansions and interaction between introverted
romanticism and gestures of greater vigor pointing toward expressionism. He
was an uncompromising craftsman whose scores contain meticulously precise
playing instructions. His music is not always easy to follow; he himself
was held to be brusque and obstinate and was nicknamed »Gallsteinius« (Mr.
Gallstone). His first symphony is one of the most remarkable symphonies
composed in Sweden during the 1920s. After the symphony’s premiere Ture
Rangström wrote, »Kallstenius is not a charming composer who invites one to
applaud.« But the composer’s honesty, intentionality, and feeling did not
escape him: »He does not play the coquette with his modernism.« In any
case, in our Swedish discovery series his music always holds in store
particularly interesting finds!

A Master of Classical Modernism
Rangström, Wirén, Pettersson, Atterberg, Peterson-Berger: these names
represent high points in Swedish music history and have found a
discographic home on cpo. Today I would like to add another important name
to this Swedish Olympus of composers: Lars-Erik Larsson. Along with Dag
Wirén, Larsson currently continues to number among the most popular
composers of classical modernism in Sweden. Their popularity of course is
explained in part by the fact that both continued to abide by the tradition
of tonality without being epigonic reactionaries. Andrew Manze, to whom cpo
owes a wonderfully inspired edition of the Brahms symphonies, is now
presenting a new recording with Larsson’s most important symphonic works as
performed by his very own Helsingborg Orchestra. One of Larsson’s three
symphonies forms the focus of each of the three CDs. And now, to begin, the
first symphony. Brimming with natural freshness and youthful new
beginnings, it reflects Larsson’s enthusiasm for the first two symphonies
of Sibelius and in melodic respects, especially in its last two movements,
is also guided by Carl Nielsen. Even in this early work Larsson displays
mastery commanding respect.

Thanks for the link, elroel.
A most beautiful, exotic and romantic ballet by a composer I'd never heard of.

This is indeed a wonderful version of the Herbstsymphonie. I have not heard Botstein's commercial recording and ASV unfortunately did not record it in their wonderful Joseph Marx series, so many thanks for the opportunity of listening to it.

I would like to add the very "romantic" André Mathieu.

Since visiting the CBC web site, I have been able to hear some very memorable music from Canada.
Since there is a dearth of Canadian music downloads and/or any discussion of Canadian composers at this site , I wondered
how and why this situation has occurred. I find some of their music to be of the highest quality and am discovering new jewels
nearly every day. Like UK, they have a interesting mix of ex-pats and homegrown composers.

This is not a "comprehensive" all-knowing list, but I feel these composers deserve much more public exposure.

Jacques Hetu
Jean Coulthard
Malcolm Forsyth
Harry Somers
Talivaldis Kenins
Srul Irving Glick
Oskar Morawetz
Rudolf Komorous

and an interesting new one I am eager to hear to hear;
Sydney Hodkinson

Would it be possible for someone to upload "Magic Herbs" by this composer?
This is a most beautiful cycle of symphonic songs and deserves to be better known.
