The 8 symphonies of the Croatian composer Stjepan Sulek were a great recent find for me.
I find his music fascinating, cleverly inventive and quite unique.
I agree totally and hope for more cd releases i found particularly impressive 2 and 7


I can't find any of his symphonies for purchase online especially the "impressive 2 and 7" if you can provide link?

I do not know where to purchase the CD Toby mentioned (it is probably not available in the US, at least), but I do know that the complete cycle is available for download here and some can be found on YouTube.

Mr. Sbookman - much appreciated, thanks - found Gjerstrom, Bresgen, Shymko & Lubchenko, all new to me, on YT. Pavlov's on classical music online, as is Kolodub; will download them later.

Do you know, I think I actually have this set.  From some years back...I was in Croatia in 2005.  That's where I picked it up.  Can't say I remember it too well.

Although speaking of Pavle Despalj, I also picked up a two-disc set of his music on that trip.  And that I liked a great deal.  I'll see if I can find it when I get home...

Thanks to Kyle and Colin here my discovery this year has been Freitas Branco Symphony No 4. Having purchased some of the earlier symphonies on Naxos, I was disappointed, finding them as 'not as good as Braga Santos' but my hasty and ill-informed judgment was corrected by the towering Symphony No 4, an epic work of considerable slumbering power which I have played over and over again.

Excellent, Jeffrey! Pleased I could lead you to this wonderful piece :)

IMHO a striking work well balanced between dark and elegiac mood.It reminds in some ways Levina's Second on the same subject.

I agree totally!! Lloyd's fine concertos are highly underrated and I think among his best works..and they do not suffer from some of the banality encountered in some of the symphonies.

I quite agree about Lloyd's concertos, all magnificent and little heard, even compared to his symphonies. The Third is a masterpiece!
