Quote from: cilgwyn on August 21, 2012, 11:20:33 AMOh good,it sounds very promising,then! Their 2cd set of the symphonies was marvellous. So wonderful to be able to hear the Fourth Symphony in a really good,modern performance & recording. And let's not forget the 1st & even,the third (it fills out the 'picture'!)The performance of the Second Symphony is the only performance I have enjoyed,other than the old deleted Measham one,on Unicorn,which I used to play allot as a teenager. It would be nice to see this reissued,incidentally! I remember borrowing the Olympia recording,from the library & thinking it was awful.Naturally,after hearing this,I can't wait to hear the new integral set of the Piano Concerto's from cpo.Nice cover design too,although,maybe not as appropriate as the design for the symphonies!After that,I rather wish someone would reissue the Olympia set of his Colas Breugnon opera!
Quote from: vandermolen on August 21, 2012, 01:06:33 PMThat old Unicorn LP with Measham conducting Symphony No 2 with Miaskovsky's No 21 was a great one. It would be great to see it reissued on CD. I'll pester Alto about it.
Quote from: cilgwyn on August 21, 2012, 02:33:44 PMPlease do,Vandermolen! Great news about this set,though;although,maybe not for my pocket! And,I know I might make myself unpopular now,but I wish they'd do the same for Khrennikov!It seems to me that Khrennikov is a bit like Marmite. Either you love him or hate him! And I AM referring to his music,of course!!! I see they are currently debating the man himself on another classical music forum. Personally,I can't get enough of the Piano Concerto's! There's just 'something' about them! Interesting to note that the person who is foremost in attacking TK,also (big suprise!) has a low opinion of his music! Surely,one can like Wagner's music,without worrying about the man himself! What must he think of Gombert?!!!
Quote from: vandermolen on August 22, 2012, 08:11:23 AMNo go with Alto I'm afraid. The Unicorn catalogue has been sold to a rival company and they don't like CDs featuring different composers, nor do they want to duplicate Miaskovsky's 21st Symphony which they've already released under Svetlanov (with great notes ). Other than that it's great news . I like Khrennikov's 2nd Symphony very much - it is very catchy and possesses depth in the slow movement - especially at the end.
Quote from: cilgwyn on August 22, 2012, 06:08:18 AMMuch as I like them (well,usually!) Chandos's inclusion of the 'Colas Breugnon overture' & 'The Comedians',is an unwelcome distraction,as far as this bunny is concerned!

Quote from: eyeresist on August 23, 2012, 06:04:47 PMAnother thing we need is a modern recording of the Requiem.
Quote from: lescamil on August 23, 2012, 07:39:13 PMThere is a new one on CPO, along with the rest of the symphonies, with Eiji Oue and the NDR Radiophilharmonie.
Quote from: eyeresist on August 23, 2012, 09:10:20 PMNo, I'm not talking about Symphony No. 3. I'm talking about the later, much longer work.
Quote from: cilgwyn on August 22, 2012, 08:56:33 AMYes,I have heard something,somewhere about the notes! Still,at least they had the courtesy to answer.Most do,mind.The only one that ever didn't,in my experience,was Nimbus! What about Regis? Or have they ceased to exist? (are they now,Alto?!) They reissued some cds of 'soviet'/Russian music. I have a certain preference towards one composer cds myself (although those old 'lollipop' style Lps,they used to do,years ago,were rather fun!) For some strange reason,those two very different symphonies complimented one another very well. In fact,when I bought the cd version,the inclusion of the 'Hamlet' music,felt like an unwelcome intrusion! Since the s/h cd,I bought, had a fault (I found out too late to get my money back! But I had the recordings! ) I made a cdr & left that pesky 'Hamlet' intruder out!
