From Schuylkill88: The soloist in the trombone Fantasy was the then principal of the Philadelphia Orchestra Glenn Dodson.

Thank you, Schuylkill88, for that missing bit of information!

Following some earlier discussion of the music of Ernst Bacon and the uploads of some of that music, I have been honoured by a private and very gracious message from the composer's widow pointing out a few mistakes in my online catalogue of Bacon's music.

I shall correct these once get back from London next week.

If the hugely welcome uploads from  Karl Miller's collection and the catalogue help to raise awareness of Ernst Bacon's music I, for one, would be delighted.

I don't know if anybody's noticed this yet, but the link to the upload of Arthur Foote's Cello Concerto is no longer valid.  Could somebody restore it, or please reload it?  Thanks in advance.

Eric Delamarter
Here are some very old recordings of American composer Eric DeLamarter's music, taken from a radio broadcast many years ago, some have announcements at end, and they merely say "played by an orchestra, conducted by the composer", no more specific than that. I am including all that I have, regardless of sound condition!:
Track 1: String Quartet
Track 2: Symphony in D
Track 3: Giddy Puritan Overture
Tracks 4 and 5: Sunset Trio
Track 6: Symphony No. 2
Tracks 7 and 8: Huckleberry Finn

Eric Stokes
Here are some broadcast recordings of the 5 Symphony(s) [yes, that's how he named them] of American composerEric Stokes and his Music for Piano and Orchestra, He pretty much went his own way in composition, and though these recordings aren't divided into movements, I will include the names of the mvts because they are entertaining at the very least. Here is an article called "Remembering Eric Stokes" that was written for the liner notes of a New World CD of Stokes' music, (doesn't include any of these works) which is very informative about this interesting man. There's also a brief wiki.
http://www.newworldrecords.org/linernotes/80596.pdf

    Atlanta SO, Dennis Russell Davies (11-08-1986)

  • Symphony No.67  Hymn To The Mountains  Op.429 (1992)

In addition, this collection has:    
  • Ode to the Temple of Sound   
  • Suite 1 for Band.   

All recordings come from radio broadcasts, out of print LPs, and from private collections.  To the best of my knowledge, none of these recordings has been commercially released in digital form.

This collection is so staggering I felt compelled to come up with a booklet that was worthy of it. This booklet

http://www.mediafire.com/view/yretb1ck3bod7y6/Hohannes_Booklet.pdf

Is more than 60 pages long.  (Note-- the link is only for the booklet.  You need to go to the downloads section to access the recordings).  The Booklet has a full listing of information about each recording, as well as bibliographical information, detailed descriptions of nearly all of the symphonies in this collection, analysis of his compositional style, and also many quotes and insights from Hovhaness himself.  Material in the booklet comes from the Hovhaness web site, a conference paper on his works for band, interviews with Hovhaness, and excerpts from Chung Park's PhD thesis about Hovhannes.  (Park conducted the 2009 Visions of the East CD with an all-Hovhaness program.)

And for what it's worth, I can't stop listening to the 5th section of the Vishnu Symphony.

Many, many, thanks to Karl Miller and Jowcol for all these Hovhaness' works.
I could add a number of symphonies to my collection.
Not all the works may be called 'powerful', but they are IMHO very listenable and I'm glad to have them!

Back to the uploads of Hovhaness Symphonies.

I think there is a little mistake in the zip-files with symphony Nº 3.
On YT Symphony 3 takes about 28 min; in the upload 19 mins.
Listening to both versions I think the file in the upload called 015_Intro is in fact the first part of the symphony

That is certainly an enormous amount of music, for which many thanks.

For those like me with limited bandwidth, can you recommend a good starting point? I don't believe I've ever knowingly heard a note of Hovhaness before.

This is quite incredible Smiley

I had a total of 28 Hovhaness symphonies in my own cd collection-out of the 67 he composed-I shall (shortly) have another 22 Grin

Huge thanks to both jowcol and Karl Miller Smiley Smiley

The booklet-which I have already downloaded-looks marvellous too Smiley

Thank you, thank you, thank you, jowcol (and Karl)! I can't even begin to adequately express my appreciation for this enormous undertaking! So many gaps in my collection will now be filled!
