Sulek is one of the finest composers and most gifted orchestrator I have encountered in a long time.
Some say he may be guilty of pouring some old wine into new bottles, and milking his themes a bit,
but he is someone who should never be missed.
IMHO, his 8th symphony sounds mch like a tribute to the human spirit (ala Beethoven's 9th)..and was a revelation to me.
I have not heard anyone else who gets such an awesome fullness from an orchestra  - and this piece would certainly
bring the house down. It should be much better known and played much more frequently.
I would love,love,love to see these pieces here as well:

Epitaf (1971) symphony?
Runke (1972) symphony?
First Piano Concerto (1949)
Second Piano Concerto (1952)
Fourth Classical Concerto (1983)
Ballet-De Veritate (1977)

Actually, as I mentioned in the comments on that page, the 4th classical concerto is very different (and slightly less convincing than the previous three in my humble opinion). What you can hear here is Two Interludes from the opera Koriolan. Gripping music indeed.

It couldn't hurt to send Klaus Heymann (Naxos) or Burkhard Schmilgun (CPO) an e-mail regarding Sulek Smiley I would think CPO would be more interested than Naxos in recording such repertoire, but I could be wrong!

anything I could do to further the Sulek's cause..do you have the email addresses for these gentlemen?
I'm also thinking that the adventurous Warren Cohen of MuscaNova may have an interest:

Hmmmm....finding the e-mail addresses of Heymann and Schmilgun has proved more difficult than I had thought. I checked the Naxos and CPO websites-no luck there! I believe you can register to this website: http://www.classicalnext.com/ to find out the e-mail addresses of notable musicians and record company owners. If that doesn't work, please let me know!

Will do, I understand some members here (Eric Schissel) have communicated with Heyman..
BIS,Ondine and perhaps Albany or Chandos would bite..I'll check it out..
and there is also Rob Barnett here, he has had a profound impact on my musical choices:

I didn't know Eric was a member here! And yes, Rob Barnett is an excellent reviewer and enthusiast of the byways of classical music!

If any of you guys are on Facebook, Klaus Heymann has an account there.  I have communicated with him via that network.

Same with me... And there he told me that Sulek was "too obscure" for Naxos. (Quite a questionable assessment, I would say, with due recognition of all that Naxos and HNH has achieved over the years.)

I kind of suspected Mr. Heymann would say something like that. I sincerely hope Naxos doesn't go down the same undesirable route as BIS Roll Eyes Could anyone try convincing Herr Schmilgun-perhaps he would be more interested? Undecided

Obscure?? How does one counter that statement? An enterprising sponsor (Like Novartis Pharma) could co-sponsor a debut of Radio Croatia Symphony for pennies on the dollar and finance it that way..I trust Croatia is not too obscure for everyone else.

Sulek is certainly not obscure to members of this forum or now to Utube where several of his works are showing up as "must Hear".
Following an email to Rob Barnett, he alerted me to this fact and is assessing Sulek as we speak.
Before Heyman controlled Marco Polo, many wonderful but obscure composers saw the light of day there.
Maybe this is his wake up call..
