1  About music in general / The listener / Re: Russian Symphony Orchestra Society on: February 17, 2019, 02:22:56 pm
apparently premiered the complete Suite from Noure and Anitra of Ilynsky.    I don't see that was ever released on either LP or CD.  The question... was it released on a 78?  I believe it was.

When you say "I believe it was" - is this a guess or you have seen something to this effect?

Does anyone have the ability to record from internet radio?  I don't...

So, who has retained an event manager who apparently doesn't know how to manage events, asks on music boards, and surfs the web to look for providers?  DO let us know so that we can make an informed choice about whether or not to attend their concerts!  Grin Roll Eyes
4  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Lyatoshinsky's 3rd Symphony and Grazhyna on Chandos on: January 28, 2019, 11:55:16 am
I bought the Karabits "album" (3rd Symphony and Grazhyna) on Apple's Itunes, but the files are corrupted - they have no sound content!  Has anyone else had this issue?!

No, but I wouldn't touch Apple's Itunes with the bargepole I keep specially for not touching things with.


Oh, how come?  Is the quality bad?

If I'm going to BUY something, I want as physical CD that I have for ever. Otherwise I'll use a subscription service.

I used to be the same.  2000 CDs later I am now wishing I had the free space!

So anyway, Apple has confirmed to me that the album as released to them lacks any sound.  They have alerted their engineering team who in turn have let the record label know.  Bizarre that something as fundamental as this wouldn't have been checked prior to release...! Anyway, they have refunded me.  They can't give a date for when ("or if") the record label will correct the album.

So if anyone else had had issues with this album as purchased on Itunes, this is why.

The Administration's reply is absolutely reasonable.  In short, people should know what it is they are posting, and provide a summary of what it's about if it is in a language that is not the language of this site.  Otherwise people could post about simply anything, and the rest of us waste our time trying to find out if it is of interest.   

Did anyone get to Yakutsk by the way?  How did they deal with today's temperature of minus 39 degrees?!

Symphony n°5 was premiered with harp concerto at Moscow Conservatory.

Concerning my posts ,I must point out to Administration that i'm italian and my own russian is scarce so i am unable to translate two times russian phrases.

It's very important to know what you are posting.  The post you are referring to was about a concert of Verdi's Requiem, that's all.  That piece of music is very popular and is probably performed every week in a concert hall somewhere in the world.  So therefore it's not really worth a post.

You've left out the most important information Neil:  it's free entry!  Come on people, what are you waiting for?  Expedia sadly doesn't list any flights between London airports and Abakan International Airport leaving today or tomorrow, and alas the concert is on 27th.  Maybe those flying from other cities will have more luck. It is a 4 hour 40 minute flight time from Moscow if that helps, and a four hour time difference.  Tripadvisor lists the Top Things To Do In Abakan here - https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractions-g635883-Activities-Abakan_Republic_of_Khakassia_Siberian_District.html - in case you find yourself at a loose end before and after the concert.

For the benefit of members here who don't speak or read Russian (I am guessing 95%?), you should say what is written on this poster.

Frankly, the only use for the Kiev Post is when the Andrex runs out. 


Well it alerted me to a piece of music of which I was previously unaware, so it hasn't been totally without merit.  As a general comment on the state of the press in the region (including Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and much of CEE), freedom of the media, and capture of media organs by (often government-friendly) oligarchs, your comment is fair.
10  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Prokofiev - early unknown symphony on: January 17, 2019, 12:35:50 pm
An expert he may be..but things are so chaotic now that Ukraine has aligned with Turkey it makes me leery of any news from that region. None the less, the music from Ukraine is still of a high quality.

This is a complete non-sequitur.  How does a country's alliances make it one that puts out fake news?  As for "unstable" - it is certainly going through difficult times but arguably has for the most part stayed remarkably cohesive despite the terrible pressures being put on it from its north-eastern neighbour. And areas away from Donbas are calm and safe (you've been too?).  Define "aligned".  Last I checked, the alignment is between Erdogan and Putin, despite their differences over Syria. 

What is your angle on the region?  Do feel free to tell us about yourself.

And finally, you brought this up but what on earth does it have to do with a lost-and-found symphonic fragment by Prokofiev?
11  Little-known music of all eras / Wish lists and requests / Re: Kabalevsky operas on: January 16, 2019, 10:54:06 am
The owner of Aquarius Classics ( http://aquarius-classic.ru ) has told me that he has an old recording of Kabalevsky's "The Master-Craftsman of Clamecy" (this is the first version of "Colas Breugnon") - among other old recordings of Russian operas - but is waiting to raise $450 per opera in order to release them commercially on CD.

It doesn't seem like a huge amount of money...

How hilarious - one of the categories there is called "Novels by well-bred nineteenth-century ladies"!  Novels by working and middle-class ladies are clearly not considered worthy. "Hurray" for classism and sexism  Undecided

Rimsky-Korsakov's opera "Sadko" isn't set in India, but has the sublime "Song of the Indian Guest"..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7KXsVfopUs
