Carl Garaguly / Tivolis Koncertsals Symphoniorkester - Nielsen. Symphony 2, Little Suite - Fona 1963


Carl Nielsen:
Symphony no.2, op.16  "The Four Temperaments"  
I: Allegro collerico  ~  II: Allegro comodo e flemmatico  ~  III: Andante malinconico  ~  IV: Allegro sanguino
FLAC  Mega Download
Little Suite for string orchestra, op.1   
Prelude: Andante con moto  ~  Intermezzo: Allegro moderato  ~  Finale: Andante con moto - Piu mosso
FLAC  Mega Download  
Tivoli Concert Symphony Orchestra  conducted by  Carl Garaguly 
Vox / Turnabout  TVS 34049   STEREO  1968 Decca release. Matrices: S 2683 -1L / S 2684 -1L
Cleaner tape-to-disc transfer than the US Vox versions - though the recording is somewhat bright (so have marginally treble-enhanced the Suite) but which now sounds excellent and exciting; as also is the performance/orchestra... Recorded: c.1960 ?    Not on CD    Sleeve-note >>>

  1. So pleased that you are doing better - sufficiently so as to be occupied with transcribing again.

    Do hope that you are satisfied with your own progress?

    This Vox transcription (when you have uploaded the links?) will take me back to my youth. One of the very early purchases. Heliodor, Saga, Vox (& Turnabout), Concert Classics, Ace of Clubs & Diamonds were the staple of my purchases.

    Thanks and all the best for your continued recovery.

    Cheers,

    Douglas (UK)

    1. That's fast !! The links are now here - previously on Zippyshare

      Recalled this as being in my files - so as it's out-of-copyright (?!), here it is again....

      I've not done any transfers for weeks - just 'recovering' @ a reasonable pace - but might upload the Symphony 1/Jensen..some Chaliapin...Rozsa... anything that won't require hours of editing..and after I've finished some HiFi adjustments..as my hand numbness is much diminished ..but was 'wobbly', yesterday, after szome sunbathing..anyway..Hobson's Choice - as have been Totally neglected by any NHS 'after-sales service' ...as, essentially, whilst 'in their care;'..

  2. Hi again, Found the links now - not showing previously.

    Now downloading - looking forward to listening to this recording afresh?

    Cheers.

  3. I will look forward particularly to the Rozsa and the Jensen recordings.

    Or was it the "the spirits" that made you wobbly - I'm sure that they were prescribed?

    Cheers.

    1. I quickly get drained of energy (causes speech problems). Since halving the medication (quartering the Statin dose: Poison - can cause Diabetes type 2) I've felt very well The Rozsa is the excellent 1957 Frankenland SO - reissued on Varese - much better than the RCA Italian stereo - both composer-conducted

  4. Just had my lunchtime prescription - a thimble full of Bourbon - perhaps I will be wobbly now, or is it the concoction of statins and other drugs that I take with my whisky? Supposed to be good for the old ticker.

    Keep myself going by doing about 50 miles walking per week. Also serves a purpose of isolating myself from my music - peace a quiet - refreshes my ears and brain. You can get too much sometimes.

    You might think of me being a heretic - just listening to the excellent MFP "Strings for Pleasure play Simon and Garfunkel" - excellent arrangements although strings are a little thin. Currently ploughing through my collection of 5,000 LPs. Mostly in good condition - but encounter a few mouldy ones and a few second-hand ones in poor condition, which reminds me why I prefer CDs to vinyl. No clicks or surface noise. But I will never get rid of my vinyl even though I could do with the space. Oxfam will have to clear them, when I'm pushing up the daisies.

    Take care of yourself.

    Will listen to the downloaded Nielsen shortly.

    Cheers.

    1. Next up: "Strings for Pleasure play the Best of Henry Mancini" ??
      For some reason, those MfP's were sometimes imported from the USA..

      Half-a-Mile will currently 'do me in'

  5. Funny you say that - I can see it in the pile waiting to be listened to, along with their version of Burt Bacharach!

    Good old MFP (and CFP).

    Next month "a mile"?

    Cheers.

    1. Next Stop: Aldi (1mile + round-trip )
      Have been kept alive by Tesco's fantastic Home Delivery the past 2 months (otherwise, 2 miles)

  6. You are from the same mould as I - Aldi and Lidl - the tops/life savers! Cannot do without them.

    Cheers.

    An outstanding version, sounding exactly like my LP copy!

    Do you by any chance have the relatively contemporary stereo Turnabout LP of the suite "Once Upon a Time" by P. E. Lange-Mueller, conducted by Johann Hye-Knudsen?

    Best,

    1. Hi Steve, I recall the good review - but, even with around 125 UK Turnabouts later-on, it never turned-up (nor the Nielsen Commotio) - despite getting EMI 'oddities' like Gade's Elverskud and the Violin Conc (1985/1983 - the latter not on CD the last time I looked)

    It was a very good Lp of marvelous music. The Swedish tenor sounded remarkably like a reincarnation of Bjoerling. I managed also to acquire a Swedish LP of this -- might have been from an HMV affiliate -- that was also in stereo, with cleaner sound. Now the entire collection of 13,000 Lps has been sold but this remains one of the elusive items that I never found on a CD issue.

    Come to mention of it, though not in any way relevant, years ago while perusing record covers, I found a listing for the D'Indy Second Symphony in a French mono-era recording -- might have been Cluytens or another French/Belgian conductor -- and despite looking thru WERM, countless catalogues, and Lp listings, never found it. My guess is that it dated from around 1954 to 57, and I've always been curious about the performance (which would be a nice alternative to Monteux and Plasson.) Ever heard of this obscurity?

    1. D'Indy is entirely missing as a composer in UK catalogues - my only other source would be the EMG Monthly letters - and only if they'd imported it.
      I guess you got a good price for that lot - possibly realising that only a few would ever be played again! Wretched things are more trouble than they're worth - obsolete technology from the start - but CD's seem to be little more than a cassette-tape replacement...or, at least, how they're produced.
