Quote from: pjme on November 04, 2014, 09:44:37 AM I enjoy You Tube . there's a whole world of lesser known music and forgotten composers to be explored.I posted only the first movement of the pianoconcerto. But both the slow mov. and the finale can easily be found. Peter
Quote from: pjme on November 07, 2014, 12:13:00 AMThat symphony was premiered by the N.I.R. symphony in Venice / 1955, together with Milhaud's 7th symphony, Concerto for orchestra by Alexander Tansman and the Fantaisie concertante by Malipiero. Afaik, Franz André was the conductor.N.I.R. stands for Nationaal Instituut voor de Radio-Omroep ( I.N.R. for the french section) - the name of the Belgian National Broadcasting institution from 1930 till 1960. Arthur Meulemans and Jean Kumps were the first conductors of a small "Radio orchestra " of ca 30-40 muscians. From 1935 André was able to organise a large, professional orchestra. Still, the history of the radio orchestra is a chequered one and reflects the complex ( at times hilarious and/or agressive ...) political situation of our bilingual country.... Peter
Quote from: Christo on August 26, 2015, 11:31:45 AMThank you all very much. I wouldn't ever have known enough about Sauguet without your help. Bought the four symphonies this Summer and am winding my way through them, thus far especially the Fist, Third and Fourth, that I all like very much. Have to find the courage yet to dive into the Second (only touched it with my toe).For me, Sauguet is a category of his own. But if I have to compare him with some-one, it would be Honegger.

Quote from: André on June 13, 2018, 10:01:37 AM+1 for the Expiatoire. I listened to all 4 symphonies not too long ago after a prolonged hiatus and was struck by their extraordinary quality. Sauguet also composed a delicious piano concerto. I used to have it on LP, with Vasso Devetzi, but alas I've never found it on cd.
