1  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Holst Perfect Fool Opera on: July 30, 2021, 10:04:15 pm
Lyrita will be issuing Sir Charles Groves’ BBCNSO recording of Holst’s Perfect Fool opera on 3rd September
2  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: Maliszewski Symphonic Works on: July 28, 2021, 10:59:54 pm
You can hear the whole set, all 3 hours 17 minutes of it, if you have access to Spotify
3  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: Dutton Epoch? on: July 16, 2021, 10:54:55 pm
The trouble with recording choral or operatic works, which seems to be Dutton’s current or recent direction, is that they are a lot more expensive to produce.
I am not alone in wishing that Dutton would go back to what they did so well - orchestral works by people such as John Veale and Stanley Bate.  There is still much of their orchestral music to explore.
4  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / General musical discussion / Re: What are you currently listening to? on: July 11, 2021, 08:20:00 pm
Thumbs up for the Bax sonata, and also for Birtwistle’s Violin Concerto. I do not care for a lot of his music, but this work is worth a listen - try the Rattle LSO dvd.
5  MEMBERS' CORNER / Members' wish lists & requests / Re: Aaron Jay Kernis and other US symphonists on: July 09, 2021, 07:55:07 pm
Kernis is yet another underrated US composer of symphonies, along with Harris, Creston, Piston, Adler, Bolcom, Rouse et al.
Whilst there are recordings of some symphonies by these composers, there is no comprehensive coverage of their works, let alone complete symphony sets in most cases.  Even ignoring the present Covid-related problems of recording and performing, there seems little interest within most US orchestras to promote their own symphonic legacies, so potential audiences are missing out on a glorious selection of music deserving of multiple hearings.
6  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: Ján Cikker: On Life: Symphonic Triptych on: July 09, 2021, 06:15:47 pm
After the Toccata cd of his piano music, which is well worth a listen, it is good to hear some of his orchestral music being made available.
For those who are interested, the whole album can be accessed on Spotify, as can the Toccata cd and other works.
7  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Individual composers / Re: In memoriam composer ESTER MÄGI (10.01.1922–14.05.2021) on: May 19, 2021, 12:54:31 pm
I, too, am sorry to read of her death, albeit at a great age.
I have enjoyed the Toccata cd since it was first issued, and hope that her passing may encourage some more recordings of her works . . .
8  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Florence Price Symphony Cycle on: May 06, 2021, 12:30:05 pm
According to Slipped Disc this morning, Yannick Nezet-Seguin and the Philadelphia Orchestra will be recording a cycle of Florence Price symphonies
9  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: Berkeley's "Nelson" on: April 13, 2021, 05:48:10 pm
Much as I like Berkeley’s orchestral and instrumental output, I shall not rush to buy this.
I just wish that Lyrita would issue more of what has always been its strength - orchestral music.
The same goes for Dutton - I used to buy every issue, but it seems to have gone off the boil as far as orchestral works are concerned.
10  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Re: Daniel Jones Symphonies forthcoming on Lyrita on: March 23, 2021, 06:19:24 pm
Care to share the details of this company issuing lists? - I thought that they had all vanished!
11  INTRODUCTION & FAQs / Greetings / Re: Hello Again! on: March 21, 2021, 09:31:44 pm
Really pleased to have you back in action, and looking forward to continuation of your valuable input - you have been missed!
12  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / Malcolm Arnold Symphonies 2 & 4 on: March 17, 2021, 01:04:43 pm
For those with access to the BBC Music Magazine, the April issue has, as its free CD, recordings of Arnold’s Symphonies 2 and 4, in performances from the Northampton Arnold Festival in 2018 and 2019.
The Arnold Festival takes place every October (except last year, for obvious reasons), and in one recent season all nine symphonies were performed over the space of four days - the only time the whole cycle has been performed together, as far as I know.
13  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Re: Rubbra’s early Piano Concerto in A minor, op30 on: February 23, 2021, 02:36:53 pm
Thanks, Albion, as ever for your action on this.
14  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Rubbra’s early Piano Concerto in A minor, op30 on: February 23, 2021, 10:50:42 am
Gleaned today from the pianist Simon Callaghan’s website (simoncallaghan.com):
There will be a concert and recording on 27th June by Simon Callaghan with the BBCNOW conducted by Martyn Brabbins of the early Piano Concerto in A minor, op30 by Rubbra - a work I have been longing to hear for years - coupled with Holst’s Folk Songs from Somerset and Richard Blackford’s ‘A Gaudí Symphony.
Has anyone here ever heard the Rubbra?
Can someone please try to record at least the Rubbra when it is broadcast?
15  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Re: Ruth Gipps BBC Radio 3 on: February 17, 2021, 12:38:02 pm
Further to my original post, I think that the Sinfonia Pacifica must be by Peggy Granville-Hicks, as I can find no trace of a similarly titled work by Gipps.
