I have been following this discussion with interest.

Unfortunately, I have little to contribute to the discussion regarding
Hadley, other than to say that I also have listened to his
compositions over the years with some modest pleasure.

I am curious to know if the full contents of these recordings are
listed in the James North NY Phil discography. I have several of the
earliest recordings on super-thick Columbia 78s that Stransky did with
the orchestra ca. 1916, I believe, and find them fascinating to listen
to, despite the fact that the recorded sound, the content and the
conducting strike me as marginal. These were recorded by a group that
was drawn from Mahler's NY Phil and I know that a fair amount of these
players were still in the orchestra when Hadley did his recordings.
For that matter, there was a disc recorded in the 60s that I believe
made it onto CD at some point that was included with some recording of
Mahler on Columbia (Walter or Bernstein, I can't recall) where several
players that weren't all that long retired reminisce about Gustav.


Sorry if I ramble.

Thanks,

Peter Hirsch

> Reading the thread on the NY Phil Ginn Recordings...While I will agree with Don that Hadley was not a great interpreter, I find his work to be quite fine, even if it was not "inspired." He was a significant musician in the history of America Music and I believe his work should be considered of some value. Thanks to discographer Fred Fellars, I have transfers of recordings he made for Okeh and many of the Ginn discs. As many of you may know, there is also a surviving video of Hadley conducting the New York Philharmonic.

Dave has also supplied me with several recordings of Hadley's music, as has conductor John McLaughlin Williams. John has made commercial recordings of the music of Hadley and has also given me copies of some of his concert performances of Hadley's music. During his lifetime, Hadley's music was performed by virtually every major symphonic organization in this country. But, as with so many composers like Piston, Creston, Whithorne, Kelley, etc, very little of the music has been performed since his death.
