So what are we to do with this list? Please either say something about these works or at least provide links to them. Otherwise you might as well post an extract from the local telephone directory.

Sir,

My discoveries are like an extract from a telephone directory?

Google search, sir; listen; form your own opinion. Or not.

Oh dear, may end up being my last post here !
Gentlemen, it's New Year's Eve - perhaps we don't always understand each other as best we might, but I for one come here to escape the cynicism & point-scoring of the 'real' world, maybe even of other 'erudite' forums.
'...decorous atmosphere full of freedom and delight';think I read that somewhere. I for one welcome Mr. Bookman's listings of works to discover, and have managed, with the odd hiccup along the way, to learn much from them. Will be hoping to uncover something from the latest 'batch'.
We'll always have our own favourites, and opinions, gentlemen( & ladies ?) and no harm in that, but let's be united by a love of the greatest music in the world....please !
A very Happy New Year to all colleagues here.

( & ladies ?)

Indeed!

A late candidate (discovered a few days ago) may turn out to be Henning Mankell's piano concerto


I couldn't make head or tail of this at first but am getting places on repeated listenings. Something similar happened a few years back with a double CD of his solo piano music.

OK, let's take the thread title at its word. What is your DISCOVERY (single) of 2013? No lists, one item; the best of the best of the whole year.

I'll give you my answer - this forum!

Fine answer. Mr. G. - sadly can't claim AMF as a discovery this year....so will vote for another place where I've enjoyed spending time recently, the Reddit Classical sub-forums. Some posts there (as, I suppose, everywhere !) that are, for want of a better word, 'unworthy', but a surprising amount of good links and, to my untrained eye, knowledgeable input of all sorts.
Introduced me to my favourite piece at least in recent months: Golijov, 3 songs for soprano & orchestra (with Dawn Upshaw, which always helps!).

I was given a recording of Dora Bright's lovely concerto, the pianist very good, the orchestra not so much--this is one of my favorites of last year. Also found music by Dilorom Saidaminova on YouTube. Very hard to narrow down!

I bought the cpo version and as expected it sounds (technically) much better.
Musically though, so far I like the 1947 version better (only after a first listen to the cpo disc).

Very glad cpo decided to bring all his symphonies!

While I'm writing this I listen to Paul McCartney's ballet 'Ocean's Kingdom'.
Until now, this is my first discovery of the year 2014.
Though this file is audio only, I can imagine the dancers on stage!

You find it here:  http://classic-online.ru/uploads/79900/79859.mp3

In my orignal post I clipped and pasted the apparently with closed eyes. So it is McPhee where it's about.
I'm deeply sorry misleading you guys.

I'll take that as my answer too, then.  Mainly because I can't remember what, exactly, I've listened to this year as opposed to last year, or the year before, or the year before that...  ;D

May one inquire whence came the recording?  I've always wanted to hear something of Bright's, but wasn't aware of any recent performances.
