4  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Cui - Ivan the Simpleton on: July 30, 2020, 06:33:12 pm
Cesar Cui's fairytale opera for children Ivan the Simpleton ("Ivanushka-Durachok") has just been released by Aquarius-Classics.  It is actually a recording from 1949 though I presume it has not previously been released.  You have to buy directly from Aquarius, via messaging them (address on the website) and then paying by paypal. I've just ordered mine, $13 including postage (I've bought from them before with no issues).

(This recording was previously mentioned here - http://artmusic.smfforfree.com/index.php/topic,6362.0.html )

5  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Stanislav Lyudkevych - Ukrainian Live CD on: July 30, 2020, 06:22:48 pm
This CD of Lyudkevych's music has just been released. 

Ukrainian Live, Vol.1

https://www.discogs.com/sell/item/1146805964

The recordings are old, but possibly never previously released.  They are:

- Sinfonietta (Rec. 1962)
- Subcarpathian Symphony (Rec. 1982)
- Symphony A Minor (Rec. 1968)

Lviv Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, Demian Pelekhatyi

I asked the seller what will be on "Vol.2", given that this is called Vol.1, but he doesn't know!

  ......As a would-be moderator  .....

Christopher,  I am not a would be moderator and not presently a moderator and have no desire to be a moderator.


Thank you for your post

The situation is that Maris(Latvian), David Hibbard (dhibbard) and I will act as co\moderators. Anyone else who might wish to help would be welcome

In the case of spam posting there MAY have already been a case of this and I think it only fair that a decision may have to be taken quickly and, if necessary, unilaterally to remove such a post within (say) 24 hours. I would welcome any comment


Colin's message in the thread "The FUTURE of this FORUM" of 18th March 2018 was incorrect?

I just posted a piano concerto by Gudiashvili in the downloads section. I can't find any other info about it.
Any idea of composition date? Which number?

Robert

Thank you very much for this!

It's not a good idea to re-post other material without either checking if it is accurate, or giving the source of the information. As a would-be moderator, surely you appreciate that.  Do your frequent postings about Zolotarev also come from fyrexianoff/other unchecked sources?  Perhaps you could provide a link to the post by fyrexianoff where he discusses Gudiashvili?
11  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Nikoloz Gudiashvili - Sonatina No.1 for piano on: June 03, 2020, 05:02:26 pm

Nikoloz Gudiashvili (1913 1998)
His fifth piano concerto can be found throughout youtube, it's a concerto popular amongst children in russia and ex soviet countries.


Perhaps you could provide some youtube/other links to back up this statement.  A quick search of youtube under "Gudiashvili" reveals a sonatina, prelude, quartet, quintet, love song.... no piano concerto though.  Same when I searched for გუდიაშვილი and Гудиашвили - his name in Georgian and Russian respectively.

Sorry to speak bluntly, but you have a frequent tendency to make statements like these which then do not stand up to scrutiny and can only be assumed to be false.  Is this deliberate?  See your many postings on Zolotarev by way of example - which include concrete statements that you have seen or even possess actual recordings but which you then seem unable to substantiate.  And you wanted to be a moderator...

Thank you for this Maris.  Sadly David didn't see fit to inform us of where he has been "seeing a good number of Melodiya 78 RPM listed".

What you say about Ukrainian music, Christopher, is true, though it applies to a large number of countries...


I think it applies particularly to Ukraine and Belarus.  They sadly seem still to have a very Soviet attitude to material in their archives.  If you ask about recordings they have, they react suspiciously and demand to know "the formal reason" that you are asking.  I don't even know what that means.  Saying "because I would like to hear the music" does not seem to be good enough.  This is a shame.  I compare that with, for example, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania who have made huge steps to make their music freely available. I believe the countries of Central Europe have been similarly open.  (By contrast, I understand that getting archived music from the UK's BBC can be very painful...)

And Ukraine, with a population of approx 45 million, is likely to have a proportionally higher number of hidden treasures.
