Jean Sibelius--Symphony No.1 in E Minor, Op.39 and Symphony No.4 in A Minor, Op.63. Both are performed by the Vienna Philharmonic under the baton of Lorin Maazel. And I thought I was feeling depressed until I listened to the 4th. Wow!

A belated thanks, Roehre for the notes on Badings.
I am just starting to discover so many 20th Century Dutch
composers - there may be 100 or so.
Green Knight - that Second Symphony by Leon Orthel that was
on youtube, is a good sampler, but is not the complete version.
i have seen it at 15 minutes on one LP, and is probably the taped
version that i heard once and taped it off the radio.
Radio Nederland used to distribute free tapes to radio stations, at least to get us introduced to all these Dutchmen - in that way,
the good old days were better.
But i recently got a set of 13 10-inch discs which includes
Orthel's Second symphony, and on there, it is longer than 15 min.
Will visit more of these here and on the modern forum.

Last night:

Gian Malipiero - Fantasie di Ogni Giorno (1953)
Vittorio Rieti - Introduzione e Gioco delle Ore
Arnold Schoenberg - Begleitungsmusik, op. 34 (1930)

James C. Fretz is on a distinguished road
Default Berlioz: Benvenuto Cellini

A recording of a live performance (one which I attended) at the Met some years ago.

Perhaps not quite as great a work as Tryens, Cellini has much more of an aura of fun about it. The writing is simply amazing. Probably not an easy work to present in its best light.

The plot is rather silly, implausible. Thankfully, one doesn't go to the opera for the plots alone.

Radio Nederland Wereldomroep (RNW) distributes recordings of live performances of Dutch repertoire. Some of these, like those by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (i.a. conducted by van Beinum-Haitink-Chailly-Janssons) found their ways on semi-commercial LPs (DAVS, with scores) and CDs (Composers' Voice) by Donemus.
A couple of them even appeared on Decca.
A treasure trove it is.

You are right about the treasure trove of that Dutch music, Roehre.
First i saw one set of 7 LP's put out by Radio Nederland, then
later i find that it is only one of a series of sets they produced!

That 13 disc set i mentioned on 10" discs was maybe a forerunner
to the usual 7 disc sets (of 12" discs).

listened to some of this Radio Nederland music yesterday:

Leon Orthel - Symphony No. 2
Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by Bernard Haitink
this was about 17.5 to 18 min. long and is the complete length.
The Radio Nederland programs were a half hour, and usually had
2 composers featured. I am guessing that to fit the Orthel Sym.
No. 2 on it, they took off the last 3 min. section - it has the same
theme as in the first section. This version is listed as 14'37",
and different performers - Willem van Otterloo conducts
The Hague Phil. Orch.

Geza Frid - Rhythmic Studies
Radio Chamber Orchestra conducted by Roelof Krol

Mambo,
I've got Orthel's 2nd Symphony (Sinfonia piccola, 1940) in a recording by Het Residentie Orkest (= Hague Philharmonic)/van Otterloo made October 1959, duration 15'29" taken from an originally commercial Decca record, re-issued by Donemus on a 2LP set in 1983 (CV8303).
I know Van Otterloo's interpretations (which are/were highly regarded, everyone expected him to succeed Van Beinum after his death in 1959 as principal conductor of the Concertgebouw Orchestra - only to learn that the young Bernard Haitink got the post in 1961) always differred slightly in their timings. This Orthel seems to me in the middle section slightly slower than it IMO should be.
