Ernst Pepping symphonies 1-3, also a couple of pieces from the Pogonyi Archive, the Serenade was very good. I haven't tried out his choral and sacred works yet, but feel like it  will be interesting. He studied with Schreker, and apparently wrote quite dissonantly until the 1930's. I will visit him again.

Thanks for that. I have to admit I hadn't heard of Pepping but he does sound an interesting chap. I see there's a CPO two-CD recording of the three symphonies and the piano concerto and so I will sample the snippets on Presto to see if they appeal.

Sumptuous stuff, wonderfully played!
I'm a big fan of the Sinfonia Drammatica! Great ott fun! A veritable, blockbuster. Respighi pulling out all the stops! A glorious melody in the second movement (Andante sostenuto). A thrilling,on your feet finale! I love it!!! Smiley Smiley Smiley I have the Chandos recording! (That said,I know some who don't respond to it,though!)

Pizzetti's Canti della stagione alta ( Concerto for Piano & Orchestra) is another sumptuous,Italian opus,that get's the old juices going,here! I pestered Chandos for a recording,to no avail! Happily,the Marco Polo recording,is one of their best,though!

I love Belkis and Metamorphoseon, exuberant and ripe (just how I like 'em)...

Thanks for the tip. I have very little of Pizzetti's stuff - just the Messa di Requiem, De Profundis and the 1st Violin Sonata. I will investigate Canti della stagione alta.

I remember a choir tour to Tuscany way back in 2006 when we performed the Pizzetti Mass on a baking-hot night to a packed church with people standing at the door listening...

I liked his skinhead,learning to be a skinhead! And his vicar sampling the wine & getting,gradually,more and more inebriated! It reminds me of my father (89 yrs old,this month) judging the village show's homebrew (or maybe,wine?) competition,when I was a youngster!

I've been a skinhead since I started to lose my hair at 14 (37 years ago)!

Vaclav Dobias: Symphony No 2 Czech Philharmonic Orchestra/ Karel Ančerl  Supraphon Ančerl Gold Edition

I've got this on,now! I'm not sure it's terribly subtle;but I find it full of interesting sonorities,and a thrilling ride. The Czech PO playing like demons here. Lot's of big drum thwacks!! Shocked Grin It certainly is a blockbuster of a symphony. The sound is good stereo,but a little reverberant,to my ears! I love the sound of those old,Soviet era,Czech orchestras (and the Russian,ones). I find this rather absorbing,actually. Epic,even! Come on,Chandos! Not sure they could beat this recording? But I'd love to hear this in up to date,digital sound,as well!

NB: I'm inclined to agree with Victor Carr Jr,now!!! Shocked
