Thank you so much to Stefan (Carpaccio.Espagnol) for his youtube channel of Ukrainian music.  I particularly liked the recording by violinist Abram Shtern of the Adagio of Mavka and Lukash from Song of the Forest ballet by Mykhailo Skorulskyi (1887-1950). So I have converted it to mp3; and I also did some digging around and found some more youtube clips, all recordings of live performances of the ballets. I have also converted these to mp3 and put in the downloads section.  Lovely harmonious atmospheric music, with hints of Khachaturian (who was actually 17 years younger).

I've come across another Ukrainian composer on youtube whose piano concerto has Rachmaninovian movements, and is melodic, harmonious and late-romantic throughout. All the more surprising therefore when I found that his dates were 1926-1988 which lies well outside the date range of composers whose music I like.  His name is Yury Znatokov, from Odessa.  I have posted up his Piano Concerto No.1, Violin Concerto No.1 (in memory of Aram Khachaturian), and fragments from his ballets "The Triumph of Love" and "The Princess Volkonskaya".

Could you please indicate the right order for the complete Song of the Forests ballet?
Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

It's a collection of clips taken from youtube, I don't know the order I'm afraid.  Do you enjoy the music?

@Christopher

This is beautiful music indeed. Somehow, it reminded me of Glière's ballet music.

It is beautiful isn't it.... I keep listening to it over and over.  Which Gliere music in particular does it remind you of? I would love to listen/   Of course, Gliere was a fellow Ukrainian.


There is actually a full(-ish) Melodiya-label recording om LP from 1971, with Boris Chistiakov conducting the Orchestra of the Kyiv Opera and Balet Theatre.  (Melodiya-D-029901—2)

If anyone has it, please do post up!  (If you are in London, I can do an LP to CD/mp3 transfer for you!)

The record cover looks like this:

It does remind me of Glière's ballet music, specifically The red poppy and The bronze horseman - at least in some numbers.
Thanks for your offering, but I'm afraid I am rather far from London (South America, as a matter of fact).

Hello everyone !
WARNING : The audio file of Vitaly Gubarenko's "Symphony No. 1" (posted on 1st June 2013) contains four times the last movement of this symphony "Allegro vivo" (8 minutes 25 seconds x 4) !!!
So the first three movements (1 Moderato ; 2 Allegretto ; 3 Andante) are missing !

Yes, of course I know that this symphony is in four movements, and I know their titles, as well as the conductor and the orchestra !!! I just said that your audio file (which lasts 33:35) contains four times the 4th movement (8:24).
So please re-upload the symphony, with its four movements (total duration : 32 minutes).
Musically,
