    Dupont released an album of improvisations last year. My local classical station played a track a few days ago so that's how I was made aware of him.

    I've been wanting to get the symphonies for awhile now. Thanks for reminding me. Love this piece. I have the quartets and love them.

    Count me as a recent fan of Holmboe!

    Another new discovery for me, is Leslie Bassett. Pretty much everything I've heard of his on YT is good, if not great.

    I haven't heard a lot of Bassett, but I did perform a piece of his (not quite as good as Ralph Sauer does here!)

    Frank Martin should be more well known, he was fantastic. I love the Chandos disc Les Quatre Elements (The Four Elements)/In Terra Pax.

    Especially for people with a very short attention-span.

    The record for longest symphony belongs to "geriatric prodigy," Havergal Brian.

    Sure, but it wasn't his birthday.
    If it isn't Krautrock, it's krap.

    Listened to the album this piece is on today, and this piece, in particular, twice today. Axel Borup-Jorgensen's Marin.

    Just discovered this piece in my Ravel box. The hybrid piano is called a lutheal.
