INTRODUCTION

December 2016
Presented here are updated and enhanced versions of the previously published Discography of East Central European and Balkan Concertos and 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.

The composers 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 composer.

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.

The entry 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 collection.

The symphony 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 Dušek (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.

It should 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 disappeared.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

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.

Please note 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.
