One name missing so far is the quirky but estimable Jakob van Domselaer, whose music I discovered on CD some years ago; but there are a number of works available on YouTube to explore.

Especially Proeven van Stijlkunst (1913-7) (Experiments in artistic style). The early part may be a bit opaque, but what follows certainly makes up for that.

Daniel Ruyneman's Hieroglyphen (1918) is recommended also

Symphonies 2&3 have been commercially recorded and in my judgment are accomplished
and communicative works of enduring worth.  The rest of the Symphonies were uploaded
somewhere (here or UC) in poor sound which I found with nowhere near the command of Nos. 2&3
and thus understandable they've been commercially ignored. 

My favourite is the 4th Symphony - which is on YouTube
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZXKgJz0EIM

I'd also recommend the 2nd Orchestral Scherzo op 38 which can be found at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FntVRiChqIA

I realise I posted the same recommendations a couple of months back: apologies for the repetition.

Many thanks for the interesting post! I'm reminded of the 3rd movement of Berlioz's Harold in Italy, which, I assume, refers to a similar bunch of chaps?

I have to admit that I immediately made a version for a student steel band group after discovering it a few years back. The only problem was the lack of a proper ending - which I felt necessary to supply.

I see much more on my iPhone

It's not immediately obvious how these are to be downloaded . . . ah - it's my computer . . .
25  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / General musical discussion / Re: Double Dutch on: September 09, 2016, 12:46:26 am
The 4th symphony is magnificent for this listener, as is the 2nd orchestral Scherzo.

That's sad - I hadn't realised he'd died.

Here's a note on Kupkovic by Gavin Bryars

Here's Gidon Kremer playing his Souvenir

But that's only the overture. With works of more major length the point may be valid.

Actually I'm put off going to concerts with too much well-known repertoire to sit through before the piece(s) I really want to hear, but that's just me I guess.

Paul Dessau's piano piece Guernica was an encore I heard a few months ago. By no means a familiar piece. I disliked it, but was glad of the opportunity to hear it.

it's a popular subject

One of my favourites is this (unknown composer) from a 1920s German orchestra

Very many thanks! I look forward to gorging myself tomorrow.
