Two of these have been seen here before, but I don't think anybody's shared the Rzayev piece:

I'm not sure which of Balanchivadze's numbered piano concertos this is. A kid's recital video of the first movement can be seen at:

...some considerably unsung composers in this volume. We've previously seen some piano sonatas by the latter two female composers. Nososelova was an honored artist of Chuvashia and also authored a book about Andrei Eshpai.

Thank you Caos for these gems. Krasnoskulov is definitely somebody new for me.
One can find a 3 minute-incomplete recording of the Rzayev Concerto, played by his daughter (dedicatee) with Niyazi conducting.

Thanks thirded!

Altough...I am not an absolute friend of „ad usum delphini“ music :mrgreen: .

Maybe this has something to do with the notorious „Schülerkonzerte“ which interesting enough have
survived for violinists. Although of doubtful quality, imho, Izhak Perlman could not resist
to record some of these.

Let's hope a closer look at the posted concertos will proove that they are of a better quality than their violin siblings ;) .
