Presented here are
updated and enhanced versions of the previously published Discography of
East Central European and Balkan Symphonies. Stephen Ellis, who had edited several other of my
published discographies, went through these two and found numerous
omissions of composers and works as well as corrections to be made. Most
of these deriving from his vast collection of LPs and CDs.I have
incorporated all of these into the current documents. Highlights of
these new versions include a much larger representation of music by
composers from the former Yugoslavia and its various successor states,
as well as many Polish non-commercial LPs and CDs that have been issued
over the last few decades as part of the contemporary music series
entitled "Warsaw Autumn." I trust that readers will find much useful
information and derive some pleasure from this endeavor.
(December 2016, most recently updated December 2018)
covered in this discography come from a very culturally diverse part of the
European continent. While they are geographically contiguous, they speak 11
different national languages that are written in 3 different alphabetic scripts
(Latin, Greek and Cyrillic) and their majority religions are divided among
3 faiths (Roman Catholic, various branches of Eastern Orthodoxy and Islam).
Included are composers who have composed symphonies that have been recorded
born in or identified with the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary,
Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece and
Turkey. The remaining countries in this part of Europe Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina
and Montenegro are not represented as no recorded symphonies by their
composers has been located. The time span covered is from the beginning of
the 19th century to our own time. The composers are listed alphabetically and a composer
index is placed first so the reader can immediately go via links to any particular
As in the
previous discographies in this series, no attempt has been made to list every
release of every recording of each work. There have just been too many reissues,
especially from the major labels, to make this feasible for many recordings.
Instead, what are listed are the most current issue the author has located
and the earliest release (if any on LP or CD) of that particular recording.
In general, multi-disc compendium releases are omitted unless they contain
a unique recording or the sole modern reissue of a previously released performance.
Recorded is here defined as being available in a physical format that can
be (or could have been) purchased or obtained from either a commercial or
non-commercial source. Tape recordings, DVD's and formats other than CD's
or LP's are not included.
for each composer consists of two sections. First there is a compact biographical
paragraph that notes some essential information such as place of birth, higher
musical education (including schools and prominent teachers), subsequent musical
careers in addition to composing and details of other symphonies that have
not been recorded. Compositional styles are not discussed in these paragraphs
and readers are referred to the bibliography where various reference books
that cover this subject are listed. The second part of each composer entry
consists of lists of his or her symphonies that have been recorded and the
various recordings of each work. Symphony is defined here as any work the
composer has designated as such in its title including works called "sinfonia"
or "sinfonietta." The works can be for full orchestra, chamber orchestra,
strings, winds, brass or chorus and orchestra. For every symphony that has
them, the opus number, key signature and title are noted and the year of composition
or première (if known) is stated for all. The entries of the symphonies
that have had multiple recordings are listed alphabetically by the conductor's
name. Each listing of a recording consists of the following components: (1)
Performers (in this order if all are involved - conductor, soloists, choral
group, orchestra), (2) Other works on the recording. (3) Label and catalogue
number and year of issue and (4) If the recording is a reissue, the original
LP or CD release and its year of issue. Please note that the performers listed
are for the entry work and not necessarily for the works that it is coupled
with. Also, in most instances when an entry work is included in a large collection
(especially if most of the other works are not related to the discography's
subject) the list of couplings is not given but replaced by the title of the
arrived in the various countries of this region at different times. It came
first in the areas that were part of the empires of Austria-Hungary and Prussia,
later in areas dominated by the Russian Empire and last in nations that had
long been under the suzerainty of the Ottoman Empire. In other words, the
further west you were, the sooner your composers would adopt Western musical
forms such as the symphony. Thus, symphonies began to appear in the Czech
and Polish lands in the 18th century. In fact by the turn of the 19th century,
there was a veritable flood of symphonies being composed in the former by
composers such as Franz Xaver Richter (1709-1789), Johann Stamitz (1717-1757),
Frantisek Xaver Duek (1731-1799), Johann Vaňhal (1739-1813), Václav
Pichl (1741-1805), Leopold Kozeluh (1747-1818), Antonín Vranický
(1761-1820), Adalbert Jírovec (1763-1850 and Antonín Rejcha
(1770-1836). On the other hand, the composition of symphonies did not appear
in Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey until the 20th century. Well into that century,
all of the countries under discussion, with some exceptions in the Balkans,
had built up a sizeable body of symphonic music. As in the rest of Europe,
but somewhat less so, the number of composers writing symphonies decreased
rapidly as the 20th century came to its close and this is readily discernible
in the work at hand where the vast majority of works documented predate the
latter decades of the 20th century.
Of all the
symphonies by composers who are covered in this Discography, only Dvoŕák's
last 3 can be considered as belonging to the standard recorded repertoire,
while Janáček's Sinfonietta, Gorecki's Symphony No. 3 and Liszt's
"Faust" and "Dante" Symphonies are at a middling level
of recording popularity. The others that come near this status, but only barely,
are those by Martinů, Szymanowski and Enescu. A number of other works
have been recorded several times, but most of the other symphonies documented
in this work have had exactly one recording. Beyond this, there are many other
symphonies from this part of Europe that have never been recorded. At the
end of the Discography, an Appendix has been added that contains a listing of many of them.
be noted that unlike all the previous Discographies in this series, the current
one is dominated by recordings on LPs rather than CDs. This is explained by
the fact that in the Communist Era of most of the countries whose symphonies
are surveyed here, the governments subsidized a vast amount of recordings
of contemporary composers as there was no need for these records to turn a
profit. Naturally, after the fall of Communism introduced market place realities,
relatively little new material appeared and most of the old recordings just
I have received
a lot of help in preparing this work. For this particular Discography, I am
especially indebted to my friends Miklos Pogonyi and Steve Ellis both of whose
broad knowledge of the composers of this region and the recordings of their
music was totally indipensable for this project to reach its completion. I
also received some important data from Paul Snook and David Canfield. As in
my previous Discographies, Rob Barnett and Len Mullenger of MusicWeb International
were on hand to help my work onto the internet.
that all recordings listed are CDs unless specifically designated as LPs.
Finally, as this book is published online it can always be a work in progress
as the author has the ability to amend the work when necessary with very little
difficulty. A work of this type is bound to contain errors and omissions as
so much material has been gathered from so many diverse sources. Therefore,
I ask anyone who reads this book and finds such errors or omissions to please
let me know at the e-mail address below. I would be very grateful indeed.
