Note to moderator: Please move this post if it gets in the way of discussion and would be better elsewhere.Thanks.

Here is a list of British and Irish works that I have noted are on the Internet archive(archive.org) (Miklos Pogonyi Archive), which I  don’t think are available in any other format (except where marked) at the moment. I could well be wrong. Just because the work is named doesn’t mean it’s available, although I believe most are (because I’ve listened to them!). Apologies if you see one you want, and ultimately it either isn’t there or is otherwise marked ‘unavailable’’private’ or something similar. Finally, there may be many more out there I haven’t noticed yet! However, it may be a useful index to add to the forum’s own archive.
 
Denis ApIvor - Sym 2, Neumes, Overtones, Violin Con, 4tet 1 (poor recording) 2 (disc marked ‘ApIfer’) Track marked 4tet 3 is not by the composer. 2 acts from opera Yerma (Act One missing?).
Seoirse Bodley - Symphony No.3, Metamorphoses on the name ‘Schumann’.
Brian Boydell - Symphony for Strings, Jubilee Music
Alan Bush - Symphony No. 3 ‘Byron’ – much better recording than in archive, sung in English (rather than in German (original) on the other recording in the AMF archive). Other works in archive: Suite of Six (4tet), Suite for 2 pianos.

One of the items in the archive is shown as incomplete - Hoddinott's opera The Beach of Falesa - but in fact the missing Third Act is to be found listed elsewhere in the Pogonyi archive on a separate 'tape' or transfer. It is interesting to note that this appears to be a different performance from the recording extracts of which I provided for the AMF archive a decade or more ago. Mine was taken from the BBC radio broadcast, but there had been an HTV television transmission some days earlier (and indeed I had highlighted the excerpts I wished to record from both that telecast and an earlier live performance). I suspect that the new and complete version in the Pogonyi archives was taken from that HTV transmission, both on the grounds of sound, some discrepancies in the sung notes, and what I think sounds like an editing join before Geraint Evans's concluding monologue in the last Act (I was told at the time that there had to be a pause in the television recording at that point on technical grounds - too much smoke emerging from the exploding temple).

I agree that there are some very valuable and unique recordings in the adventurous Miklos Pogonyi archive, and that of Alan Bush's Byron Symphony for example is a vast improvement on the existing recording quite apart from being sung in English rather than German (although the first performance was in the latter language). One wonders how many other private archives are out there with rare and unusual items lurking in their depths?

Many thanks to Latvian for the following works by Malcolm Arnold, including several premieres* - all the series are now represented in the archive in off-air recordings (including nos. 1-6 in wonderful broadcasts under Rumon Gamba). One of the most significant symphonic cycles by a composer of any nationality...

Symphony No.2, Op.40 (1953)
BBC Welsh O/ Malcolm Arnold (br. 21/10/1971)

Symphony No.3, Op.63 (1957)
RLPO/ John Pritchard (br. 1958)

Symphony No.4, Op.71 (1960)*
BBC SO/ Malcolm Arnold (br. 2/11/1960)

Symphony No.5, Op.74 (1961)
BBC Northern SO/ Malcolm Arnold (br. 1/5/1966)

Symphony No.6, Op.95 (1967)*
BBC Northern SO/ Malcolm Arnold (br. 28/6/1968)

Symphony No.7, Op.113 (1973)
BBC SO/ Malcolm Arnold (4/10/1976, br. 16/3/1977)
 
Symphony for Brass, Op.123 (1978)
BBC SSO Brass/ Jerzy Maksymiuk (br.10/4/1986)

Symphony No.8, Op.124 (1978)*
Albany SO/ Julius Hegyi (br. 4/5/1979)

Symphony No.9, Op.128 (1986)*
BBC PO/ Charles Groves (br. 20/1/1992)


All are safely gathered in (though not necessarily free from sorrow or free from sin)...

My dear friend, thank you for this - what a catalogue you've listed! I'm not entirely sure how to access it, any pointers? Is it listen-only or downloadable?

They can be streamed and recorded. I use a program called Total Recorder which captures Internet streams very nicely, and then I edit them with another program called Audacity. The former can be purchased for a reasonable fee and the latter is free. I've also found it necessary to edit quite a few of the recordings from the Pogonyi collection as many are at a low volume and others have sudden variations in volume.

I got many recordings in this collection from Miklos himself. He was a friend for many years and we exchanged recordings frequently. As a matter of fact, quite a few items in his collection on Internet Archive came from me.

Maris already mentioned the most important facts, but for completeness, I should maybe recall an older discussion about this collection:
http://artmusic.smfforfree.com/index.php/topic,7100.0.html
Miklos's collection was just vast for sure. I also had the pleasure to exchange quite some stuff with him in his late years. In fact, Miklos still had a lot more, since all the tapes he had have not even been included by the archive guys.

Quite right, Holger! And you and I have fed each other's collections over the years as well!

Audacity - not a clue. Know I'm way behind the 8 ball on such things, but still find it hard to believe that with an education beyond degree level, some of these IT programs feel like a probe from another galaxy.


You and me both. I had Audacity on an old PC and it flummoxed me completely. I am more at home with fibre needles, a dog and a trumpet.

I have put an MP3 of the vimeo video performance of Parry's The Pied Piper of Hamelin in the BIMA where it is labelled with the additional tag "[unknown performers]".

Sullivan's incidental music to The Tempest (1861-62) is now in BIMA. This is the 1956 recording by the Vienna SO and F. Charles Adler which was on a long-deleted Unicorn LP. More or less complete, dialogue is not included, unlike in the recent Dutton release.

And here is

Alice Mary Smith
Overture: The Masque of Pandora
BBC Concert Orchestra
Barry Wordsworth, conductor

Broadcast on BBC Radio 3 2 June 2021

Thanks to calyptorhynchus for posting this which gives me cause to remember that, early in my association with the late Patrick Meadows, we worked on preparing printed editions of three of Alice Mary Smith's Piano Quartets. I am compelled to say that while they were pleasant enough, I didn't find them memorable. The same may be said of the two symphonies (recorded by Howard Shelley and the London Mozart Players for Chandos) which I found interestingly dull. I will listen to The Masque of Pandora with, I hope, an unprejudicial ear.   Smiley
