Skorulskyi, Mykhaylo Adamovych (1887-1950)

Adagio of Mavka and Lukash, from the ballet Song of the Forest

Orchestra of Donetsk National Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet named after A.B. Solovyanenko
(violin solo and conductor unknown)

I've posted up fragments from this ballet before (above).  This particular recording of its "climax" piece is "ripped" from a complete live performance by the Donetsk ballet which is posted up on youtube ().

The Adagio is about 7 minutes long and is for violin and orchestra.  To me this version is a true encore piece, and hits the spot more than any of the several other versions out there, including the one released commercially with Abram Shtern on the violin and the Kyiv Opera Theatre Orchestra under Borys Chystyakov. I am embarrassed to say I have often had it on repeat for up to an hour at a time! I hope you like it as much as I do.

But everything seemed to die out around, do not rustle over Malinovka in the evenings fervent girlish songs. There is a severe 1919 year. A lot of troubles had to be experienced by the villagers. And then there's the new attack - in the district there was a gang of Gritsko - the son of the local rich Balyasnoy, who appropriated a magnificent title - pan-ataman Gritsian Tavrichesky. However, no matter how much Gritsko did, his affairs were bad - a bandit gang was falling apart before his eyes. Feeling that he did not stay long ataman, Gritsko decides to the last villainy - he plans to forcibly take in his wives the beauty that attracted him Yarinka.
And Yarinka does not know anything about the impending disaster. She is happy in her soul, because she has long loved the young shepherd Andreika.
One morning, lifting up the pungent dust clouds, Gritsian's mounted gang appeared on a rural street. Next to the ataman is his rightful adjutant, Popandopulo. Looking at him, it's hard to keep from laughing. He wears a riding breeches of green billiard cloth, a cap with a pancake, and all of his small frail figure is hung with weapons. "Hey, Yarinka," Gritsian stops the girl, "prepare for the wedding!" Today at eight o'clock we'll be married. " In despair, Yarinka rushed out of the village.

Ryabov, Olexiy Panteleymonovych   (1899-1955)

More biographical info (using google translate):

http://www.belcanto.ru/ryabov_alexei.html

Ryabov was a Soviet composer, one of the oldest authors of the Soviet operetta.
Alexey Panteleymonovich Ryabov was born on March 5 (17), 1899 in Kharkiv, Ukraine. He received his musical education at the Kharkiv Conservatory, where he was simultaneously engaged in violin and composition classes. After graduating from the conservatory in 1918, he taught violin, worked as a concertmaster of the symphony orchestra in Kharkiv and other cities. In the early years he created the Concerto for Violin and Orchestra (1919), a number of chamber instrumental and vocal compositions.

1923 turned out to be a turning point in Ryabov's creative destiny: he wrote the operetta "Colombina", which premiered in Rostov-on-Don. Since then, the composer firmly linked his work with the operetta. In 1929 in Kharkov, in place of the Russian operetta company that existed for many years, the first operetta theater in Ukrainian was formed. In the repertoire of the theater along with Western operettas were Ukrainian musical comedies. For many years Ryabov was his conductor, and in 1941 he became the chief conductor of the Kiev Musical Comedy Theater, where he worked until the end of his days.

Creative legacy of Ryabov has more than twenty operettas and musical comedies. Among them - "Sorochinskaya Fair" (1936) and "May Night" (1937) on the stories of Gogol's novels from the book "Evenings on a Farm near Dikanka". Widely known in Ukraine was his operetta on L. Yukhvid's libretto "The Wedding in Malinovka" (outside the republic, the operetta of B. Aleksandrov was distributed to the same plot). Not being endowed with a bright compositional personality, AP Ryabov possessed undoubted professionalism, knew the laws of the genre well. His operettas were staged all over the Soviet Union.

"Sorochinskaya Fair" was a repertoire of many Soviet theaters. In 1975, it was placed in the GDR (Berlin, "Metropol-Theater").
