As an administrator of this forum I would like to commend members who take the time to thank others for their contributions in this way

I sometimes forget to do this myself but I also know how gratifying it is to know that others appreciate a post or an upload

In the Russian/Soviet downloads folder:

Alexander Goedicke (1877-1957)
Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 30 (1922)
      Adagio -- Allegro moderato
      Andante cantabile
      Allegro
   Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra
   Boris Khaikin, conductor

from LP: Melodiya D-04786/87 (released 1958, never reissued on CD to the best of my knowledge)

A sprawling, conservative symphony in the grand Russian tradition, not overtly nationalistic, from the early years of the Soviet Union.

Many thanks for these. Both Bunin and Ignat'eva were Feinberg's students, and I've heard them both play (the former is still playing a lot of Feinberg, into his 80s). I expect Polina was also one of his students. I have heard that M-A Hamelin recorded sonatas 1-6 last week, and there are rumours that there will be a series or festival dedicated to Feinberg, Medtner and Szymanowski in Helsinki perhaps next year.

You're welcome, and thanks for the information on the pianists. I've long thought that these performances were particularly atmospheric, so knowing some of them were students of Feinberg certainly explains their affinity for the music.

This disc was my introduction to Feinberg's music when I found it in a used record shop back in the 1980s, and the 12th Sonata has become one of my favorite piano pieces.

For me, the strongest of the sonatas are 1-4, 6-10, 12, especially 2, 6, 7, 8 & 12.
Bunin's other recordings are all top-notch too. He also knew Alexandrov who wrote a concerto and solo pieces for Bunin. I think Golubev wrote for him too.

Thanks for this Maris.  Do you by any chance have the record cover image as well?

Sorry, Christopher, I don't have the LP anymore and no scan or photo. As I recall, though, it was one of Melodiya's generic jackets, though.
