Thank you Mr. H - an important composer, whose works are not as well known as they should be; obviously M. Roberge has put in a great deal of praiseworthy effort and enthusiasm. I am looking forward to reading his book - with its 1,958 foot-notes! - starting from this very evening, and I hope at last to find answers to a number of questions I have long harboured in relation to Sorabji and his musical thought.
I agree entirely with your sentiments here and, although Sorabji's music is indeed not yet as well known as they should be, the difference between the state of Sorabji apprecation today and that of, say, three decades ago is nevertheless immense; during that time there have been many hundreds of performances and many tens of broadcasts in more than two dozen countries, almost 40 recordings (many of which remain available today) and the scholarly works of various musicologists, perhaps most notably Paul Rapoport, Simon Abrahams and Sean Vaughn Owen, in addition to which the scores of his entire extant œuvre and known published literary writings have become readily available both in paper and .pdf formats - there have also been many new editions of his scores made, the earliest to be done being by hand but the majority typeset.
