    Another Langgaard work this year too- symphony 2 (Vaarbrud, Break of Spring, with soprano solo) (1912-14, revised 1933), April 22nd @ Konzerthaus: Großer Saal, Vienna.

    Also, already mentioned the Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players' program of April 17th (I'll be in NYC soon but will leave before I can catch this), but forgot to mention that the Pfitzner is accompanied by works of Dotzauer and Brahms- the latter his trio in A major (still "Brahms?" for some, I know; I agree with Malcolm MacDonald that it most likely is by Brahms) and the former Dotzauer's string trio in E-flat Op.52 (published ca.1819? by Böhme of Hamburg.)

    Also, http://www.englishmusicfestival.org.uk/programme.html this, including maybe the 2nd ever public performance of Montague Phillips' symphony in C minor (1911) if I understand right (it says "world premiere performance, but of course since the work was premiered in 1912, that may have to be taken with a grain of salt- maybe world premiere of the new edition, since the holograph, according to the same link, was lost...)

    Does anyone have more information about what "concert overture" by Stanford that is that's being premiered?

    Presumably it's the Concert Overture in A minor, composed in Juy 1870 and, according to Dibble's biography of Stanford "unperformed? and unpublished, autograph in private hands".

    The Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players have posted a bare outline of next year's season (also, there's one concert left in this season, on May 15. They have a summer session too, iirc.) Just the names of the concerts and dates for now, but surely among them the March 13 2018 one, "Reicha's Reach", is intriguing?

    The merged SWR Symphony Orchestra announced its 2017/18 season:

    Vaughan Williams, Symphony no 1. 3/4 March 2018 (Liederhalle Stuttgart)

    Likewise, the Bamberger Symphoniker announced its 2017/18 season:

    8/9/11 Feb 2018: Vaughan Williams, Symphony no 6 (Manze)

    27/28 Jan: Bantok's orchestration of: Johann Sebastian Bach »Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme« BWV 140

    29 Sep/1 Oct 2017: Ernest Chausson »Poème de l’amour et de la mer« für Gesang und Orchester

    20/21 Sep 2017: Suk, Asrael Symphony

    All these works are not totally unsung, but 1) seldomly played in Germany, 2) probably the most unsung one can get from the most orchestras...

    Best wishes, ewk
