Thought I would post this... interesting work.  Released on Melodiya.

Robert Gazizov - Concerto for Piano and Orchestra with solist Alexander Polezhaev and Veronika Dudarova conducting the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra. Released on Melodiya in 1981 as S10 25195/6 (LP). This LP does include Robert Gazizov's Symphony No. 1.


Robert Gazizov was born in Ufa, Russia. In 1968, after graduation from the college of art in Ufa he entered Prof. A.S.Leman's class of composition at the Kazan Conservatory.

The seventies saw the composer active in the composition of choral and stage music. Almost immediately after his gradiation he wrote the children's ballet "Ali Baba and the Forty Robberies".

The eighties have marked a shift to another, more mature stage in his creative work.This instrumental compositions are different in content,structure and expressive meaning.

His "Concert for Oboe and Chamber Orchestra" deserves special attention. It has been created in the wake of barouke musical tradition and is remarkable for depth and capacious polyphonic thinking. He has managed to find a common meeting between jazz and Bashkir national music. The main of them are the predominant role of improvisational elements, sophisticated multi-layer rhythmical organization, variational principles.

Such in the genesis of jazz elements in the "Lyrical suite" for chamber ensemble, "Concert for Piano","Concert for Orchestra #1";,"Concert for Orchestra #2"; and other compositions.

After that, he created many works for chambers ensambles. There are string quartets #3 and #4, sonata for two piano, quartet for violin,viola,cello and piano, and other works.

One of the latest composition is the symphony #3 for a large symphonic orchestra. This work was written complicated harmonic music language with using modern technical ways.

Robert Gazizov has written music for many plays by Bresht,Ostrovsky,Eoneskoy and other authors.The composer had created music for the movies:"The Secret of Gold Mountain","Young Man from Good Family"(three series).

Symphonic and chamber works performed at many large cites of the Russia(Moscow, Leningrad, Kazan and others), Italy(Rome),Germany(Berlin,Halle) and other countries.

His music was performed by famous conductors:Yuri Silantiev, Veronica Dudarova, Igor Stegman, Igor Zhukov, Andrei Chistyakov(all Moscow), Fuat Mansurov(Kazan), Roman Kofman(Israel).
