Improvements to the article[edit]

While the article is interesting and seems well written it is very poorly referenced and I believe that attention from an expert is needed to not only to provide sources for the material contained therein, but to locate sources that can be used to shed additional light on the subject that may have come to surface since the original article was created. For example amongst the surviving scores of the composer Marcel Tyberg is a two movement completion of the Unfinished Symphony and the question thus arises, was he an entrant and if he was does any evidence survive to confirm this.

Secondly the linked 2010 radio program presents an account that seems to differ from the one presented in the article, which is more accurate.

Finally does anyone have a copy of the Paul Rapoport book the original author mentioned so that the full list of winners can be included in the article?Graham1973 (talk) 13:20, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

This article might help: (Most of the general information and reports about the circumstances of the competition that follow here are taken from ‚Havergal Brian and his Symphony "The Gothic"‘, a thesis submitted in 1970 for a Master of Music at the University of Michigan by Paul Rapoport.)

Thank you for locating that. It does clear up a lot of questions. I'll have to look through it and the article carefully before using. Any further sources would be very welcome, this must have left some impression in the international press of the day.Graham1973 (talk) 09:46, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
