This is wonderful piece. Thank you so much autoharp. It is not much played here. it is has wonderful thrust forward momentum.
I investigated Boris Tchaikovsky and found the same roots so to say (or the same college). I found another composer I forgot - Shebalin. He was well known and now is not played much. There is more melodious and lyrical tendency in his music.

I mostly know Shebalin as composer of ballet. I forgot the name of it and looked on the net and then listened to his first symphony.
This is not motoric music, still firmly rooted in 20th century tradition. This is much closer to Tchaikovsky's tradition I think.
I used to like motoric movement but my tastes changed since.

Kabalevsky was played very often and he has a lot of motoric movement. .

Kabalevsky also has Preludes and Fugues. This particular was played a lot .

Kabalevsky's preludes were not as difficult and were played a lot. Needless to say that most of them were major keys.  I don't think they are bad pieces, but have no idea if his name will be remembered. I think he will be remembered in Russia perhaps. I looked on the net and his music is still played a lot.

Thank you so much for good example of Shostakovich octet. I don't know if there are other movements on the net .
