In case the mention of Gonchiksumla in the US thread curiositated anyone.

These are from two old Melodiya LPs in Paper sleeves. And I like the music very much, and don't look to compare it to anything!

Hope there are many more Mongolian uploads.

As a youngster,I recall being intrigued by the Gonchiksumla Lps in the old Russian Record Company catalogues. A Mongolian composer was nearly as exotic as it got. The temptation was there,but for some reason I always resisted sending in my order (postal orders,back then! ;D)

I still regret not ordering the Boris Asafiev 2 Lp set of  The Fountain of Bakchsarai (hope that's spelt right?!) & some other excerpts (The Flames of Paris,I think?). The exotic sounding name probably helped increase my curiosity. Years later I managed to tape around twenty minutes of the former,broadcast on the sadly missed R3 Saturday listeners request show. A two hour show,the idiots axed! :( Anyway,while not hugely original,the music is rather enjoyable in an old fashioned,even for it's time,way! Perhaps Melodiya or some other cd label will reissue the set,one day!
Meanwhile,I was rather amazed to see that the Bolshoi Ballet's production of Asafiev's 'The Flames of Paris'  (a Stalin favourite,apparently! ;D) has actually been released on dvd!! :o

I saw the show in live performance at the Bolshoi Theatre in September (a friend took me for my birthday). It's a clumsy and rather leaden work, predicated on a suitably maudlin Soviet kitchsy story of a poor-but-honest girl who is abducted and manhandled by beastly toffs. Despite listening to it for more than 2 hours, not a note of it left any impression on me (well, other than a rather improbably harmonised version of La Marseillaise )  It's more miserable than Les Miserables.

At the BT the new version has been choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky - who has made something of a career portfolio of dusting-off soviet cast-offs. However, even Ratmansky's lively and attractive staging can't breathe much life into this weary warhorse, and I found myself twiddling my thumbs until the next lighting or choreographic stunt. As with all their productions, the quality of productions revived even from the previous season dips woefully.  Ratmansky is notorious as a meticulous task-master ("You miss one rehearsal - you're out!") and probably the show was very tight when it premiered last season.  But the cat's away, so the mice are at play... unsynchronised lines of performers, action which fails to finish in time with the music... and one girl who literally fell off a 1-meter platform upstage   ::)  I hope the material filmed for DVD release was taken from last season's shows!  :-)
