I recently ran into a lot of music scores of Boris Maizel.. who was an understudy of M Shteinberg at the Leningrad Cons. and later settled in Moscow in 1945.  There are several scores of his symphonies and tone poems.   However, I don't see any recordings of his works.      A quick search on the internet does not produce much information.   Anyone know anything about this composer??

Boris Sergeyevich MAIZEL [b. June 4(17), 1907, Saint-Petersburg] — was a Soviet composer. Meritorious man of art of Buryat Autonomous Republic (1959). In 1936 he graduated from Leningrad Conservatory majoring in composition in the class of P.B. Ryazanov. In 1942–1944 he lived in Sverdlovsk, since 1944 — in Moscow.

 Most of Maizel’s creative works are big symphonic pieces. He contributed considerably to the ballet art of Buryatia. His ballet “In the Name of Love” (1958, Ulan-Ude; co-produced with J. A.
