Dacapo have confirmed to me that they have no plans to record any more Tarp beyond the three volumes advertised. This means that we shall get no Tarp beyond the earlier neoclassical music composed up to the mid-1960s. This-to my mind-is a very sad decision! Tarp went on composing until the early 1990s. He produced nine symphonies in total. Dacapo recorded No.7 many many years ago. I was looking forward to having the rest on disc.
To record almost all of the early music of a composer and then ignore the later music is actually reprehensible. The later symphonies can be heard in off-air recordings on You Tube but sound quality obviously varies. This was an opportunity to fill a major gap in the Danish symphonic repertoire on disc but Dacapo has decided to fill only part. Sad!!
