Your composers A-Z?

Post by Mark Antony Owen » Sun Jun 04, 2006 6:17 am

Are there any letters of the alphabet not represented in your collection? By which I mean, of course, composers whose names begin with these letters?

For me, only 'I', 'Q', 'U' and 'X' aren't represented at all.

How about you?

U and X are unrepresented in my collection; I do have one Quantz CD and all the other letters are represented. I is represented by Ibert, d'Indy, & Ives, & I'm surprised I have no Ippolitov-Ivanov. I'll have to get to work on that, as well as Ussachevsky. Forget about Xenakis. You don't need him.

Oh, if d'Indy is 'I' and not 'D', then that letter's covered, too! :wink:

Plenty of gaps in mine as I have nothing by composers whose names begin with A, I, J, L, O, Q, U, W, X, Y and Z.

The U is the only not represented.

The I has several composers of value: Ives, Isaac, d'Indy ...

The X has only one composer: Xenakis.

The Q only one work of one composer: Quantz.

The same with the Y: Ysaye.

I would suggest Ullmann to those people missing U's.

I hope nobody is missing the B... Xenakis is the only composer i know beginning with X. But he should of course be part of every serious record collection. But who am i to talk, i miss I, which means i don't have any Ives. (Yes, i know, not good at all). I also miss J, Y and Z. Or is Frank Zappa acknowledged as a classical composer nowadays?

Nothing under "J?"

There are many - but the most obvious one is Janacek - one of the twentieth century greats.

As for "Y" - Naxos helps us here, having included in their series on Japanese composers a couple of very interesting discs of music by Yamada and Yashiro.

And there's also Richard Yardumian, a long-time Philadelphia resident, who is represented on CD by his Symphony 2 and Armenian Suite (at least - I think there may be a recording of his Violin Concerto, too). Yardumian sounds like a more straightforward Hovhaness - not so exotic, but using lots of Armenian folk tunes.

Can we sneak in Victor Young, because of his glorious film music?

As far as "Z" is concerned - you are missing out if you don't have any Zemlinsky or Zelenka. The former, from the last century, wrote lush orchestral and vocal works, as well as a few excellent operas (also string quartets). The latter, Zelenka, lived from 1679-1745, and is well-recorded, his unusual and individualistic music brilliantly composed.

Two more "Z"'s: Karl Zeller, Viennese composer of wonderful 19th-century operettas....and Hans Zender, great and imaginative contemporary German composer and conductor (still living).
