Fellow member on here Carpaccio.Espagnol, who shares my curiosity about music from Ukraine, has retrieved from the Vernadsky National Library in Kyiv the score of the piano concerto of Myhaylo Skorulskyi (1887-1950). He found it after being directed there by the composer's grand-daughter

It is here - https://www.mediafire.com/file/f0la266yycnrrpy/%D0%A1%D0%BA%D0%BE%D1%80%D1%83%D0%BB%D1%8C%D1%81%D1%8C%D0%BA%D0%B8%D0%B8%CC%86+-+%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%BD%D1%86%D0%B5%D1%80%D1%82+%D0%B4%D0%BB%D1%8F+%D1%84%D0%BE%D1%80%D1%82%D0%B5%D0%BF%D1%96%D0%B0%D0%BD%D0%BE+%D0%B7+%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%BA%D0%B5%D1%81%D1%82%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%BC.pdf



Apparently the score hadn't been touched in decades.  According to Carpaccio.Espagnol - Volodymyr Vynnytsky (http://glierinstitute.org/ukr/famous-musicians/006.html) played the piece at a Skorulskyi 100th anniversary concert, which was probably in 1987.  He is said to live in America.   And reportedly a conductor by the name of Kurt Adler (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Adler) took the piece on tour around Europe with the Zhytomyr orchestra where the piece met with some success. 

I'm afraid I can't read music in a way that I can hear the music in my head, but I find his other work which has been recorded (principally the ballet Song of the Forest, posted on this website) highly melodic and late-romantic in style and so I hope this piano concerto might be in the same vein.

This document has the score in the format of solo piano part + orchestral part in a version for piano (I am sure there's a better way of phrasing that!).  Carpaccio.Espagnol is hoping to obtain the full score for all parts in due course.

It would be great to hear the opinions of those who can read music in a meaningful way.
