Lourié

Post by chrispiano »

Could anyone possibly help me: I'm giving a recital in February 2010 with works by Russian composers - they have asked me to play Artur Lourie's Two Compositions for piano (I believe it was written in 1936), and I have spent weeks looking for a copy to no avail! If someone could possibly point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated as I am at the point of tearing my hair out!!

Kindest Regards,
Chris

Chris, I moved your post to the Scriabinists thread where Lourie definitely belongs.

Here's the only decent Lourie worklist I have:
Lourie List of Works.pdf
And here is the Phoenix Park Nocturne of 1938, which is I believe the second of the two pieces to which you are referring.
Lourie 1936-8 Two Compositions - 2 A Phoenix Park Nocturne 1938.pdf
I suspect the Berceuse de la Chevresse (1936) is the first of these Two Pieces, published together with the Phoenix Park Nocturne in 1942. Sadly I do not have the Berceuse.

A couple of useful webpages: http://www.lourie.ch/ & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Louri%C3%A9

What else do you plan on performing in your recital? Do please post a notice in our Recitals & Concerts forum...

Rob has beaten me, I was too slow. The Two compositions by Lourié indeed are "Berceuse de la chevresse" and "Phoenix Park Nocturne". These were originally published by G. Schirmer, but they are out of print. Like Rob I don't have the Berceuse.

Re: Lourie - Berceuse de la Chevresse

If you e-mail Schirmer's they will provide a copy from their archive [and cost aren't usually too bad]......I've obtain quite a number of works from their archive over the years.

In addition to Julian, another offspring of Scriabin to have composed was his daughter, Marina Scriabine (sometimes Skrjabin). A couple piano sonatas, a score for a ballet, and a quartet for ondes martinots, according to World Cat, all in manuscript form, housed in the Free Library of Philadelphia (USA) and apparently available electronically to students/faculty of a few American/Canadian universities.

Many thanks to all of you for helping, at least I've got a starting point now!! When I get hold of the first piece, as long as it does not break any copyright restrictions, I'll upload it for you. Thank you for your suggestion with regards to giving you my concert dates, the one for next year, the date has not been confirmed yet, so I shall keep you updated, however, I am giving a recital on in November with works from Alkan, Liszt, Chopin and Rachmaninov.

Many thanks once again for all your help, it is duly appreciated.

I'm not sure if this had ever been discussed on the older forum, but does anyone know if there's ever been a print edition of Samuil Feinberg's 3rd piano concerto, op. 44?

I would please like to see Roslavets' two viola sonatas. Or have these been recently copyrighted by Schott also?
