Wish granted!

"Wit’s latest releases are preceded by an astonishing catalogue of more than 180 CDs. Casting his mind back over this formidable output, what handful of projects stand out for him as the most rewarding peaks in his career? What does he remember with the greatest pleasure? ‘Oh! It’s so difficult to say! I’m very happy that we did all of Szymanowski, Lutosławski, Penderecki, Kilar and Gorecki—and many things of Paderewski and Wieniawski too. And we’re now going on to Moniuszko, Weinberg maybe, Panufnik and Bacewicz, so there’s a lot of Polish music still to come, which of course pleases me very much."

Awesome, Brian! I couldn't imagine a better advocate for Bacewicz's music than Wit. He's right at home in Polish music.

I'd like some orchestral recordings of 20th century Serbian composers like Dragutin Gostuski, Vasilije Mokranjac, Milan Ristic, Petar Konjovic .... Either for existing older recordings from ex-yugoslavian times to get reissued on CD (currently mostly not available in any form) or new recordings by local, or any other, orchestras. Though chances for either to happen are probably negligible in current economic climate.

Better stereo versions of these badly under-served masterpieces:

Four Saints in Three Acts Virgil Thomson

A Little Night Music Stephen Sondheim

and the complete symphonies of Michael Nyman.

Seem like he meant the Bacewitz quartets and not the symphonies though.

Any/all of the chamber music by her that is not currently available or never recorded would be very much appreciated.  :-)

The previous quote about the symphonies - specifically the 4th - peaks my interest - there was only the old Polish radio broadcast performance of this, from manuscript, I believe - so someone will need to take photocopies/corrections of the original for rehearsals.  It would be a miracle if the scores from the original performance were still around and intact?

I think he meant the symphonies - he has recorded Moniuszko and Weinberg since that interview, so I don't see why not. The problem is last year the Warsaw Philharmonic signed an exclusive deal with Warner, so Wit will have to record with a lesser orchestra from now on. Naxos is still releasing a backlog of Warsaw/Wit recordings made before that contract - next month's new Penderecki album is a 3-year-old recording.

I'd like to see a new set of Khachaturian symphonies recorded (Naxos would be good :) ) The Tjeknavorian set with the Armenian PO on ASV was really not very good, and the CDs themselves suffered with deterioration.
I'd also like to see a new recording of Shchedrin's ballet "Anna Karenina". The Simonov recording, which has had several incarnations, is great but it's very treble-heavy (trumpets to make your ears bleed).

Just want to add the parenthesis that "Naxos would be good" of course means that the performing organization provides the means, and as a result, the recording, and Naxos is just the distribution channel.  A by-now marvelously well-positioned distribution channel, to be sure  8)

- A complete cycle of the 13 symphonies of Daniel Jones. Currently we only have Nos. 4 & 6-9 available.

- Peter Maxwell Davies' 7th, 8th & 9th Symphonies. It's a shame that one of the great living symphony cycles is not available complete on disc.

I now remember there was a similar thread already on GMG. I reproduce the list I wrote at the time:

I'd really want to see these operas recorded:

- Roger Sessions: Montezuma
- Alberto Ginastera: Don Rodrigo, Beatrix Cenci and Bomarzo (the latter was available on LP on CBS, but only transferred to CD in a limited release by the Argentine consulate in Miami--with rather sloppy prodcution standards  >:( )
- Manuel de Falla/Ernesto Halffter: Atlántida (both the pioneering Frühbeck and the later Edmon Colomer recordings are long OOP, and the work deserves wider recognition and a modern version)
- Heitor Villa-Lobos: Yerma.
- Ernst Krenek: Das Leben des Orest, Pallas Athene weint
- Vincent d'Indy: Fervaal. His L'Etranger (available from Accord) was a bit of a letdown--a sort of poor man's Parsifal, with rather tacky mysticism--but I still would want to get to know this (apparently) more ambitious work
- Reynaldo Hahn: Le Marchand de Venise (a mid-70's performance from the Palais Garnier under Rosenthal is available from a "live opera specialist" in Italy  ::) , but in poor sound and with annoying radio commentary at some moments).
- Henri Pousseur: Votre Faust (again, there was a LP of this available, but it was never transferred to CD).
- Deodat de Sévérac: Heliogabale.
Alas, no recording of any of these works has materialised over the past months (that would have been too good to be true). I have located bootleg recordings (from a reliable sorce) of Beatrix Cenci, Fervaal and Héliogabale, though  (but haven't yet bought them).

EDIT: Another work that needs a recording is Gaspare Sponitini's Agnes von Hohenstaufen. There's bootleg recordings by Vittorio Gui (early 50s) and Riccardo Muti (1970 IIRC), both from the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, but in Italian translation. And Fernand Cortez by the same composer would be nice to see as well. The only studio recording (in the original French,  on the Accord label) is long OOP and prohibitevely expensive (second-hand from MP sellers).

As they are amongst the finest ever (her brother, Felix Mendelssohn, said of them: the most beautiful that man can create), it's time there was a compete recording of Fanny Hensel's lieder (I believe the count of them is 243, but that may have changed).

Erato, do you have this?  True it's not a full cycle, but it comes with an excitedly positive review from Jens.



More the pity that the live recording of SQ5 by the Pro Arte Quartet -- in an otherwise excellent cycle of the quartets -- has substandard sound.  Hopefully some young quartet will take up these works on record.

Reissues/box sets:
Arditti Quartet: The Complete Gramavision, Montaigne and Naïve Recordings
Taneyev Quartet: Complete Recordings
Juilliard Quartet 1946-1970
RZ's Jani Christou edition

New recordings:
Theodor Kirchner: Sämtliche Klavierwerke
Remaining orchestral works of Jan Křtitel Václav Kalivoda (perhaps CPO is already doing this?)
Some more music by Horațiu Rădulescu
Gabriel Fauré: Intégrale de la musique de piano sur les instruments de l'époque
Carl Nielsen: Suite Op. 45, played by Martha Argerich (ok I know this one will never happen)
James Dillon: Nine Rivers
Richard Barrett: CONSTRUCTION
Beethoven: String Quartets Opp. 127-135, played by the Chiaroscuro Quartet (period instruments)
Bartók: Quartets 1-4, played by the Arcanto Quartett
Hindemith: Das Marienleben (1923 version) sung by Juliane Banse with the accompaniment of... idk probably Siegfried Mauser if he's still alive
Schubert: String Quintet D956, played by the Arditti Quartet with Rohan de Saram (yeah this probably won't happen either but let's be real, not like any of these things will happen, and I am curious)
Brian Ferneyhough: Works for orchestra
Liza Lim: The Navigators
Bernard van Dieren: the string quartets
things by Miloslav Kabeláč

and many more!

Maybe some of the random scores I sometimes find at the library and search for only to find that the composer has never been recorded before, eg Jean Martinet's Orphée and Karl Georg Peter Grädener's String Trio in the last couple of weeks.

In light of the news that there is a presumably and/or hopefully new Jean-Rodolphe Kars recording of the Vingt Regards coming next month, this seems a good time to ineffectually hope for the pianist to record Liszt's Harmonies poétiques et religieuses.  He might be able to match Michel Block in the Benediction.

A new Bartok cycle from the Emerson Quartet.  I have their 1989 recording on DG, which is excellent.  However, I saw them perform the entire set in a single concert in 1995 at Tanglewood, and their interpretation had really expanded and developed since the recording.  I gave up on a live CD from that performance (it was recorded), but am still hoping they'll re-record this cycle.  It would be devastating.  For me, anyway.

I can entirely recommend the Bloch/Griller set.  A slightly older-sounding recording, but the performance is just excellent.  I have the Pro Arte recordings, but the recording quality isn't that good for a modern DDD recording, and (my opinion) the performance isn't as good as the Griller set.
