In researching information about Nikolai Anosov (Russian conductor)  I discovered an interesting fact from Wikipedia:

Recordings, and Archive of All-Union Radio

A complete listing of the recordings of Anosov in Russian or English has yet to be made, and the majority of his recordings lie unexplored in the Archive of All-Union Radio. He was the first performer of many works of Soviet composers and a significant number of operas.

Wonder what other works are buried in the archives that have yet to be made public???   perhaps, we will never know.

Oh, dhibbard, what a yawning chasm we look into when we discuss unsearched music archives of hidden treasures!!! Here in USA there are so many enticing entries of music, even recordings, in the catalogs of various libraries, especially at universities and they all appear to be designed to stay precisely where they are--on the shelves and apparently at the very back ones at that! With luck I have found a few who have digitalized some of their archival recordings and been able to wheedle some of them into sending them to me, but most don't even reply. I have always had an interest in music written by woman composers and I found a big list of music by Eda Rapoport apparently recorded on fragile acetate or something like that in New York City Library (I think) and didn't even receive a reply from them. Then without any musicological credentials there doesn't seem to be even a chance of going to these places to explore. Oh, well, I guess I already have more than enough to listen to, but I can't quash the yearning to hear some of these hidden away things--the fate of the full-blown music addict....

Yes... I was aware that the NYC Public Library and of course and Library of Congress in Washington DC has a huge collection... however, one must spend some time there in person and pay a small ransom for a librarian to go find the item for you.. if its not in some remote warehouse somewhere.    I have been able to pay a small fee to get some of those recordings made in a mp3 format from the original 78 record..   however, again that is far more rare.   I was aware that somewhere in All-Union Radio music collection is the recording of Anatoli Bogatyrev's symphony no 1 and several post WW2 composers that never made it to the 33 rpm pressings....  oh well.....Sad
