Christopher, I am just listening to your uploads of the Grechaninov excerpts from Dobrynya Nikitich.
Something is wrong with the Act I introduction: after 45 seconds there is a big silent gap of about 1 min 40 sec.
I tried to cut the silence but the bits did not join, so the music must have been going on.
I have downloaded the file two times but the same problem occurs. Sorry.

Given that he was writing in the USSR's darkest decades (20s, 30s, 40s and early 50s), it's a wonder that he was able to write such light music.

Some would also see exactly the same scenario as being exactly the reason he wrote such light music Wink

Agreed. With quite a bit of the work from the 30s-50s, and especially works from the Soviet territories outside of Russia, the brisk writing style, emphases on unambiguous folk materials, unabashed virtuosity, etc.. was simply required if one wanted to maintain a music career. Soviet composers simply didn't have the Western luxury of being able to openly react to the mood of the times.

Under the "United States" composers downloads, I post a collection of Karl Miller's tracks of American Pianist Byron Janis's interpretations of Prokofiev's Third Piano concerto and Tchaikovsky's first.  Enjoy.

Vano Muradeli: Symphony No 2 in D major

I have been spending some time lately sorting through a lot of files I have downloaded over the last couple of years or so; some of them are a bit mysterious now. Either I can't tell where I got them, or sometimes, even what they are.

I have a zip file for the above mentioned symphony, which I thought must come from here, but I can't find the posting of it. I did a little research into the piece itself, the results of which I post here for the benfit of anyone interested. The zip contains five files, but the symphony has only four movements. Files two and three need to be merged. Then you have::

1: Adagio-Allegro fervido
2: Adagio sostenuto
3: Allegro moderato
4: Allegro vivo

Hope this is useful to someone.

Malcolm Henbury-Ballan (MHBallan on here) has been kind enough to send me his DAT-format cassette on which this Lyrical Intermezzo was recorded, together with a number of other Bortkiewicz works (see below).  I have transferred them to MP3 format and put in the Downloads section. According to Malcolm all come from the archives of Austrian Radio and were recorded in the 1940s and 1950s.  I hope you enjoy.  Many thanks to Malcolm! Both Ukraine and Russia can claim Bortkiewicz, so I have put these recordings in the downloads sections for both countries!

Des Frühlings und des Pans Erwachen - ein lyrisches Intermezzo nach Gemälden von Sandro Botticelli, Op.44

Aus der Kinderzeit, Op.39 - arr. string orchestra

Im 3/4 Takt

Overture to a Fairytale Opera, Op.53

Elegie, Op.46 arr. cello & piano

Berceuse for violin & piano

Piano Concerto No.1 in B♭ major, Op.16

Piano Sonata No.2 in C♯ minor, Op.60

Etude No.6, Op.15


The arrangements are the composer's own.

There is quite a lot of music by Veniamin Basner here for download that I have never seen before e.g.

Symphony No. 2 "Blockade"
Symphony "Ekaterina Ismailova" after themes from Shostakovich
Sinfonietta for Flute and Strings
Complete Ballet "The Three Musketeers"
Suites of Film Music "Fate of Man" and "The White Guard"

Please note that this recording of Bortkiewicz's Piano Concerto No. 1 is heavily cut in the last movement, which runs only 4:33 vs. Hyperion's complete recording of 12:14.  Apparently, performers used to take a lot of liberties with the score; there are different cuts marked by hand in the score on IMSLP and Marjorie Mitchell's recording has various omissions, too.

Just wondered if anyone had ever downloaded (I didn't find it)  these works by the Karelian-Soviet composer G. Sinisalo:  Sampo- Ballet, Karelia Pictures and Heroes of the Forest Symphony?    were released on Melodiya but very rare.    Thanks !!
