New Recordings & Broadcasts / Re: Dutton - New Releases
« Last post by TerraEpon on Today at 00:55 »
Some interesting new releases just announced here: https://www.duttonvocalion.co.uk/
Of especial interest to this forum is the Chaminade disk.

Well huh. I won't even complain about yet another recording of the concerstuck (which I, incidentally, JUST got....fantastic disc) to get a recording of Callirhoë.
Delicious.

What catches my attention is the Maximillian Steinberg disk - finally, the 4th symphony! And the Hubert Clifford, although he's too modern for this site. How do the British do it? Chandos, Hyperion, Toccata, Dutton - four great, essential labels for classical listeners all on one small island nation. Puts the US to shame! Ordering now...

I don't know if Fanny was converted at the same time as Felix, but she was quite possibly Christian by the time she composed the sonata.  I think she would have been 18 when Felix was 13.

I just discovered this recording today, what a superb symphony, what a superb performance, well, I did not expect anything different from Manze, at least having some Vaughan Willams Symphonies from the proms in mind.

I just bought the Brilliant CD Box (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Stenhammar-Symphonies-Concerto-G%C3%B6teborgs-Konserthusk%C3%B6r/dp/B004W5MNR2/ref=pd_sbs_15_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=P9FM8796TPV5FA227ZXM) including the Järvi recording you mentioned, Alan. Can’t wait to listen to the CD as soon as I have the time to do so.

The konserthuset webpage has been reworked, the new URL is http://www.konserthuset.se/play/stenhammar-symfoni-nr-1/

Best, ewk

Composers and Music / Re: Adolph Gollmick 1825-1883

Pedantic point perhaps, but 1866 was Gollmick père's year of death; he was born in 1796.

BTW: I would consider recordings with the Nordwestdt. Philharmonie conducted by W.A.Albert much more likely to originate from the 1980s rather
than being new productions for cpo.

While Albert's tenure as a principal conductor with the NWR ended in 1971, he has made various recordings with them afterwards (with works by Pepping, Nicodé, Korngold, Volkmann and others) until the 2000s. From what I heard, the two Sträßer symphonies were recorded in the late 1990s, and were always intended to be released on CD.

It should perhaps be emphasized that cpo doesn't "order" recordings from radio orchestras. I have read amazement that "cpo recordings" are broadcast by radio stations, but that is part of the agreement. These regional orchestras' missions usually include recording the work of regional composers, and they work together with the radio station that they're associated with, and cpo, on recording projects. Something like this is the case for other labels, too, and cpo can be regarded as a "house label" for most of these regional broadcasting stations. This explains how some cpo recordings are available on streaming services, or as downloads, and others aren't – the licensing agreements differ. And some situations are beyond cpo's control. But they might be a bit more open about it from time to time.

I've posted mp3s of the off-air recordings of the first two symphonies (and the Concert Overture for good measure) in the Downloads Board here.

Thank you, Mark!

Thank you, Giles. It's good to know that you too thought it a fine work. Maybe, judging by what you say about the quality of the broadcast performance, I'm better off sticking with Heidsieck's rendition, which unfortunately I can't share here as it comes from a commercial LP.
