Though I may respectfully disagree with the stylistic tastes of the people at 'Unsung Composers', I did like the way they partitioned discussion and download links. In the spirit of that arrangement...

Thank you Holger for the Rakov pieces. I don't know much of his work aside from several piano sonatinas that he composed. The only work of his that I've heard is a short piano concerto (no. 2) that Fyrexianoff has posted on Youtube. That work is pretty much the definition of lightness, clarity and is well-described by the comment that suggests a 'Russian Poulenc.'

After reading his bio on Wikipedia and noting the strict conservatism of his style, I find it rather interesting that Edison Denisov was one of his students, as he's one of the more boldly avant-garde composers to work in Russia during that time.

His music (including LPs) has also been cataloged at the following site:
