Only too happy to oblige...As I've said, this particular YT channel is a veritable treasure trove for those amongst us with a penchant for Russian/Soviet music!
3  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Rodion Shchedrin plays his own concerto on: February 06, 2018, 07:08:25 pm
A very approachable Soviet concerto from Rodion Shchedrin, played with exuberance by the composer himself. Posted on YT for some time - excellent channel for Russian/Soviet music...

Two youthful piano concertos from Miriam Hyde, rather fetching in a late-Romantic, 'Rachmaninovian' style:

Many thanks for your translation of the short biography. I have an interest in Soviet music, but must confess to not having heard of Gennady Vorobyov, until coming across your posting on YouTube. Since then, I've had the pleasure of listening to his symphony on a few occasions. Look forward to making further discoveries on your channel.

Thanks! The information and links are greatly appreciated. After finding so little on the Internet, a misspelling of either the composer or conductor's name did occur to me.
7  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Gennady Vorobyov (1918-39) on: December 24, 2017, 04:48:50 pm
Thought Iíd post a brief enquiry about a Soviet composer Iíve recently come across on YouTube, a Gennady Vorobyov (1918-39) from the Chuvash Republic of Russia. Before his untimely death in 1939, he almost finished a Symphony in C minor, which was, apparently, completed by fellow student, Nikolai Peiko. On first hearing, the work sounds quite accessible, in a late-Romantic style. Iím curious to know if anyone else is aware of the existence of this obscure composer, as I have unearthed nothing from Internet searches or New Grove. My efforts to uncover information on the conductor of the recording, Vitaly Kitaev, have also failed. Hereís the YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EiCufnNYGE. Seasonís greetings to allÖ
8  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Lucija Garuta - Music New CD released with Piano Concerto on: November 28, 2017, 09:27:51 pm
Many thanks for the advice. I confess to having been rather hasty on leaving Amazon, not noticing the list of independent vendors! However, I may follow up on djarvie's suggestion and take the download option from iTunes...

Just listened to Liene Circene's performance, posted on YouTube, and the music is sensational, blowing my proverbial socks away! I'd love to buy the new recording, but the CD is temporarily out of stock on Amazon.co.uk and their sister website, Amazon.ca (I'm based in Canada) doesn't even sell it! I'd be grateful to hear any suggestions with respect to where I might purchase this CD online. Thanks in advance...
10  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Sergei Bortkiewicz - Piano Concerto No. 2 for Left Hand on: November 15, 2017, 12:45:43 am
Hi, I'm new to this, so I hope this works. Below is a link to a YouTube performance that I've recently enjoyed, namely Nadejda Vlaeva's interpretation of Sergei Bortkiewicz's lovely piano concerto for the left hand. The sound is a bit 'foggy', but the picture is sharp enough on my laptop. I can't say I've seen a concert pianist read music from their tablet before Smiley
