Alkan’s vocal music
I recorded a selection of Alkan's unpublished art songs on my undergraduate degree recital in April of 2015. This performance followed an extensive research project focusing on his accomplishments and compositions.

Liszt’s Etude op.6 no. 11
I have recently posted an article on and with the title :F.Liszt; Etude Opus 6 nr. 11, History and Analysis. This is about one of his 12 ”youth etudes” with a discovery of mine.

Alkan’s Chants and Mendelssohn’s Lieder ohne Worte
Some months ago I burned a CD with the twelve “Songs Without Words” of Felix Mendelssohn’s Opus 19 and 30 performed by Daniel Barenboim.  I arranged these on the disc so that each song was followed by the appropriate Alkan Opus 38 variation from the disc recorded by Stephanie McCallum. It is a very satisfying way to listen to all these lovely little pieces. If members have these discs in their collections, I advise the same exercise.

Nominate “Alkan” as the name of a crater on the planet Mercury
Craters on Mercury are named for literary, graphic, or musical artists who are reasonably well known and have been dead for at least three years. The International AstronomicaI Union (IAU) is currently looking for names for five recently discovered craters on Mercury and the names will be announced  in a few months.
The public has been invited to submit suggestions for names. I think it is a good time to submit Alkan's name and I have done so.  Please add your voice to mine: details can be found here. The deadline for suggesting a name is 15 January.
