Oh dear! Malcolm's great thread is about to fall off the first page, time to add something.

Here is the surprisingly hard to find Piano Sonata No.2 of Gretchaninov.

Vasil Ivanovich Pashchenko. Born 1822: died 1891, Buda-Horobiivs’ka. Composer. Lived and worked exclusively in Odessa. Very little else seems known about him. Wrote numerous works for the piano including waltzes, mazurkas, polonaises etc. many of which were based on Ukrainian themes. Very few of these works seem to have survived, and as such are very difficult to find.

I have posted three of his most well-known works:

Polonaise “On Taras Schvchenko’s Death” (Jurgenson)
Poloniase “Duma of Ukraine” (Jurgenson)
Ukrainian Folksong [transcription] (Jurgenson)
Pashchenko V - Three Pieces.pdf

That link will take you to Rob's post (in the old PP) of some
Lyatoshinsky's pieces (included op 38-2 versions)
They are still active

I suspect that oiseauxtristes (a Ravelian name surely?) won't have a logon-id @ the old forum. I'll see what I can do later today or tomorrow.
Rob don't worry as I have scanned copies duly posted for oiseauxtristes. Not sure which set you want from the Op 38 group so I have added both [Op 38 a & c......b was the Shevchenko Suite ].

Next in my study on the "P"'s:

Vladimir Ivanovich Pohl. Born 1875, died 1962. First educated in Kiev and later at the Moscow Conservatory. In 1904, he taught at a music school in Yalta, and from 1905 he served five years as director of the Moscow section of the Russian Music Society. In 1911 succeeded Rachmaninoff as the director of the Empress Maria Music Institute in Moscow. From 1918-19 he arranged with Makovsky a number of concerts and exhibitions at royal palaces across Yalta. After the revolution he fled Russia [circa. 1927] and settled in Paris where he was on the Council of The Belaïeff Editions, and a professor of composition at the Russian Conservatory. Pohl was associated with the circle around George Ivanovich Gurdjieff showing much interest in occult and oriental literature coupled with a study of Sufi music.

A very difficult composer to trace – he primary seems to have written a number of songs with just a few piano pieces [although finding information on his compositions has been extremely difficult to obtain]. Piano works include:

Op 17 Poem for left hand (1938 Belaieff)
Pohl V - Op 17 Poeme pour la main gauche.pdf
Op 19 Deux Morceaux [for the left hand] (Belaieff) 1. Valse-Impromptu 2. Valse Romantique

“Catarina” Polka (Gutheil)

I have posted the Op 17 Poeme for left hand. Any further information or music scores by Pohl would be much appreciated.

From 1907-10, he studied at the St Petersburg Conservatoire, where he received the Gold Medal and the A. Rubinstein Prize. From 1913-17 taught in Tbilisi and concertized. Settled in London in the 1920’s. Pouishnov wrote a small selection of piano miniatures, as well as an arrangement of the ballet music from “Rosemunde” by Schubert. Piano works include:
