I find it extraordinary that Šulek is so little recorded, you would have thought that his obvious influences from Mahler would have meant German record companies at least would be on it him.

I've just been listening to the his fifth (I think all his symphonies are impressive, but the fifth is extra impressive). I love the way he finds new sonorities to play with, often involving low instruments: tubas, bass clarinets &c. I believe in the fifth symphony he uses a bass oboe (Heckelphone), a rare instrument, but perhaps someone who as seen the score an comment.
