The Steinberg Symphony No.4 "Turksib" is a jolly, epic piece though and thoroughly enjoyable in a "let's write music thoroughly acceptable to Uncle Joe" sort of way. Trying to forget the poor folk who must have frozen to death building the railway may be difficult for some but the music is certainly rousingly patriotic. Although not mentioned anywhere in Guy Rickard's notes was it the fact that Steinberg was Jewish that led to his eclipse?

One of the reasons that more Soviet era music has not been re-recorded with modern technology, is that the reorganized Melodiya still owns and has reasserted its copyrights or may be in the process of reasserting its copyrights in the future.. leading some record executives to shy away from any new projects... i.e.  Vasilenko, Peiko, Alexandrov, Popov....  I was told that by Klaus Heymann back a few years ago.

My understanding was that in the USSR copyright was regarded as an insidious capitalist thing, and Melodiya recordings were issued without copyright. Certainly it was never mentioned on the LP labels or sleeves.

Of course, that is also the reason the Soviets pirated Western recordings regularly. Toscanini and many others never received a penny in royalties from Moscow.

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948
