Some more files from Jezetha of GMG.

http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=191b3b8d4da3c14fab1eab3e9fa335ca5742b1295e67a80f

including a Shostakovich 4,

I'm fairly certain that this is a live DSCH4 from Kondrashin and the Concertgebouw, which can be found in the huge (and expensive) anthology of Concertgebouw recordings of the 1970s. If Ron were here, he'd urge you to download it. What the heck, I'll urge you to download it...it's an electrifying performance, even if you do know his Moscow one!

You're probably right. The thread from which it came certainly suggests it's Kondrashin (when two + two are added together).

There is no doubt about it, it is the RCO/Kondrashin recording. However, how legal it is to download it is another matter. :(

which consists of the following:

I'm not the White expert round here, but that shouldn't be a hundred and forty-something, rather than fourteen, should it??

Oh and incidentally:
This is another blog that is well worth following:

http://classicalintheair.blogspot.com/

Posting high quality recordings of mostly new music concerts from the radio. Too much to download, let alone listen too ...
I don't remember whether I ever tried to click on this before, but now when I do I get: "This blog is open to invited readers only." Anyone know anything about that?

No. it is no.14 (c.23 minutes long) which dates from 1960.

That happened a month or two ago. Nervousness over copyright issues, I think. I've not been invited, and I'm not sure how one would go about that.  :'(

Thanks Jonathan for sharing the live recordings (and Auto for advertising them!).

Which is not surprising in the light of this:

As a young man I harbored the populist idea of writing for the public. I learned that the public didn't care. So I decided to write for myself. Since then people have gotten interested - Elliott Carter

Certainly understandable. Still, it's a shame that sharers of new music recordings from German radio should feel under the same pressure as those sharing Nirvana tracks.

Here's a site accidentally discovered which offers a recording of Jani Christou's Phoenix Music, which by coincidence was posted on the Green Board by Gerard in a 1967 recording. This site appears to offer other thingies which some may find of interest (Duckworth, Spahlinger etc).

evanj drew attention to http://highponytail.blogspot.com/ on M&S. Amongst other things, it offers different versions of the Barraque Sonata and the incomparable Wanda Wilkomirska playing the Szymanowski Mythes. Trouble is I can't seem to access them. Any tips?

I've just:
(a) clicked on where the word HERE appears in green in the text under the cover picture of the Derek Bailey "In Whose Tradition" LP
(b) been transferred to a Mediafire download page
(c) clicked on "Download" which appeared when I moved the cursor over the icon for Side 1 of the LP
(d) begun to download a .zip file containing said Side 1.

How far did you get?

Yesterday I downloaded the Ferneyhough - both files. It took a while, but everything worked OK. This also contained the score. Very cool. Thanks to evanj for the heads-up.

Thanks indeed. I saw no score with this package though.

There's a folder called scans and inside, along with photos of the LP (front and back), includes the pdf of the score. I think it depends if you download the complete package or just the two files.
