I have put in the Downloads section pieces from this concert "Leningraders: 900 Days in the Name of Life" ("ЛЕНИНГРАДЦЫ. 900 ДНЕЙ ВО ИМЯ ЖИЗНИ") which was held and broadcast in St. Petersburg in 2014 to mark 70 years since the end of the Siege of Leningrad. The music chosen was written by composers living, and in some cases dying, under the Siege.

The concert was a "son-et-lumičre" spectacle, and you can hear speech and the sound effects of war at some points in the music.

Bogdanov-Berezovsky, Valerian Mikhailovich (1903-1971) - overture-poster to the opera "The Leningraders"
Shostakovich, Dmitri (1906-1975) - “Oath to the People's Commissariat”
Zhelobinsky, Valeriy Viktorovich (1913-1946) - “A man bent over the water”
Bogdanov-Berezovsky, Valerian Mikhailovich (1903-1971) - People's scene from "The Leningraders" opera
Kamensky, Alexandr Danilovich (1900-1952) - Heroic Partizan March
Bogdanov-Berezovsky, Valerian Mikhailovich (1903-1971) - Violin Concerto in memory of Tchaikovsky - Part I
Kochurov, Yuri Vladimirovich (1907-1952) - Heroic Aria
Bogdanov-Berezovsky, Valerian Mikhailovich (1903-1971) - Entr'Acte and Scene in the bomb shelter from the opera "The Leningraders"
Veysberg, Yuliya Lazarevna (1880-1942) - lullaby from the opera Geese-Swans
Asafyev, Boris Vladimirovich (1884-1949) - choral miniature "Holy God"
Goltz, Boris Grigorevich (1913-1942) - “A Star Shines High in the Sky"
Asafyev, Boris Vladimirovich (1884-1949) - “Maybe I Will Die"
Miaskovsky, Nikolai Yakovlevich (1881-1950) - cantata "Kirov is with us" - parts 2 and 4
Kalafati, Vassily Pavlovich (1869-1942) - Ceremonial march “Stars of the Kremlin”

Kalafati’s "Solemn March of  Stakhanovite Workers’ Movement" ("Torzhstvenny Marsh Udarnikov", 1931–1933)  Op.25  for chamber  orchestra,  ordered by Soyuzkino (the Soviet film studio of the time), is the same exact work as his  Stars  of the  Kremlin (above),  with  a few minor changes.

Yuliya Veysberg was the daughter-in-law of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, married to his son Andrei.

Hasanov, Gotfrid Alidin xva (1900-1965)

Also spelt Gasanov.

From the republic of Dagestan within Russia.

He wrote the first Dagestani opera "Khochbar" and I have finally managed to locate a copy and put in the Downloads section.  The quality sound is very low though, so if anyone has a converter system to improve the volume that would be much appreciated!

Three more recordings of this opera have been brought to my attention, the sound quality may be better:

(2017 version)
(1996 version)
(2010 version)
