Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Kyrgystan & Tajikistan)

In fairness to these independent republics, we have in the past included them under the Russian & Soviet thread but they should carry their own thread, and to start the proceeding, a number of works by Uzbek composers, I recently found.

Biographies and piano work lists for these composers are included in my 'book' in the Information & Literature section.

Thank you Malcolm for all the stuff you share here.
How many hands or pianists for this piece ? I am puzzled by the nine simultaneous staves.

Hi Jean-Seb........its for piano solo, think the composer found it easier to spread across 9 staves, but it does work for 2 hands.

Thank you, Malcolm. Yes, I tried. I think it is however the biggest number of staves I've seen for a piano solo.

Thanks for these, Malcolm. Perhaps I should see about assembling a list of links to all the Central Asian scores that have been shared thus far. For now, running a search for the country names is probably the easiest way for people to find things. I've always tried to include that when posting scores by composers from those regions...and the same goes for composers from the other national republics within the Russian Federation (i.e. Bashkortostan, Tatarstan, Kalmykia, etc...)

Thank you caostotale, anything extra would be wondeful. There are brief bios in my 'book' and I hope, when time allows to explore more from these regions. If you remember last year or so I posted a load of scores by Tatar composers, and would like to do the same for the other regions. Some very interesting scores no doubt still be to found and enjoyed.

For today: Muhammad Atadzhanov (1959 - ) [another work by this composer in the chamber thread]

For Jean-Seb, something you can use for a talking point with other musicians, the 9 staves of Abdullaev is dwarfed by the 12 staves of Prelude No.4 from 42 preludes by Istvan Szelenyi, thankfully the composer writes only 5 bars of music in this piece which is taller than it is long.
best wishes
