I wasn't sure where to put this, I noticed several people mention the loss of the great website that Onno van Rijen had put together on Soviet music, and I told him about how it was missed. He said to let everyone know that the internet provider he used suddenly raised the price of hosting extremely high so he had to let it go, but if there is interest he may be able to resurrect it in another place that is less costly. I hope there will be replies to this and I will forward any signs of interest to him.

Glad to here....  his website  was very informative.   In some ways, we have several pages here that were just copied here, especially about composers works and several of the mediafire files are here also.   Since you know him, ask him to join here and he can contribute to the forum.  Even tho it is not exclusive about Russian/Soviet composers,  we have a large amount of information here.

Great news indeed! As stated before, I would suggest that his complete site should find a new home here.

I would be delighted if Onno's site could be restored. An English language collection of such information is now sorely lacking and an invaluable research source. The combination of complete opus list, dates, composer info and recordings is not assembled in a single site for these composers as far as I know.

Due to problems with my provider (Starting Februari I had to pay a lot of money if I continued hosting) I ended up with my website.
In the past period, I have reviewed whether and how to realize a new website. This resulted in choosing Wix.
The new website is still under construction and that will be the case for the time being.

I'm curious if this new version is attractive to visitors of my new website.

Onno (at least I presume it's you),

Have you given any thought to resurrecting your Soviet music community?  That would also be very welcome news to many of us!

Hello Onno,

Very good to see you here in this forum.
Have been missing my soviet "encyclopedia".
Great it (comes) back.
