 The forgotten composer Ketelby April 1, 2012 By Stephen Schoeman (Westfield, NJ) See All My Reviews "How extraordinary that composers once so very popular are now nearly if not completely forgotten! Albert William Ketelby is such a composer. He wrote very beautiful music, the kind of compositions which are the equivalent of comfort food. There was a genius in his melodies and in his orchestrations. Unfortunately, his music is little performed today. "Sic transit gloria mundi". How nice, how right it would be if conductors and musicians paid more attention to Ketelby and to such other lesser known composers as Ditters von Dittersdorf and Carl Stamitz! And if audiences were informed about the lesser known or unknown classical composers! The world of classical music is not solely inhabited by the likes of Mozart and Beethoven and Schubert! Nor the world of classical music solely by the likes of Verdi and Puccini and Donizetti! Nor just by the Jupiter Symphony and the Unfinished Symphony and La Boheme and Carmen! There is a wealth of relatively unknown and even unknown glorious classical music which should be tapped. Not only by the lesser known or unknown classical composers but also by the very well known ones as well! A good place to begin is with Arkiv.org with its vast and so well organized collection of classical music." Report Abuse
