Salut comrades, here is my first Russian Concerto Scan (unisokani style).
Berkovich - Piano Concerto Op.44.pdf
Isak I Berkovich (1902 - ???) - Russian composer and pianist who studied with Ivan Ardon and Anna Rexik at the Tunguska Academy. Expelled from the Communist Party for entering the railway timetable into the Lada Users Handbook.

I will eventually do some more, but to be honest the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Magna Carta and probably even Tutankhamun's loin cloth are in a better state of preservation and undoubtedly consist of superior material.

Besides, I am too busy with my Leopold De Meyer disk.

Bye

Thal

No, I've never seen any, although Malcolm would undoubtedly know more than me. But from Grove:
____________________________________________________________________________________
Sinisalo, Helmer-Rayner

(b Zlatoust, Ural' region, 14 June 1920; d Petrozavodsk, 2 Aug 1989). Karelian composer. He studied the flute at the Petrozavodsk Music College (1935–9) but suffered political persecution as the son of an enemy of the people (his father Nestor Sinisalo was shot in 1937). He also studied composition with Peyko and Voloshinov in the Moscow and Leningrad conservatories respectively (1952–5). During his student years and for a while thereafter he played the flute in the Karelian Radio SO (1936–41 and 1944–56). He was also the artistic director and conductor of the Kantele national ensemble of song and dance (1950–52), as well as a teacher at the Petrozavodsk Music College (1948–57). He gradually moved away from performing and in 1956 became head of the Karelian composers' organization, of which he had been a member since the age of 19. He remained in this post until his death. As a composer and as a public figure who made a great contribution towards the development of a Karelian national school of professional music he received many awards, honorary titles and prizes.

Although he began composing miniatures during his student years, his real début as a composer was with his Flute Concerto (1940). His historical importance stems from his composition in 1949 of the first Karelian symphony – Bogatïri lesa (‘The Warrior Heroes of the Forest’) – and the ballet Sampo. The origins of the ballet can be traced to the choreographic poem Pobeda (‘Victory’) and the one-act ballet Kyullikki, both written during World War II and subsequently lost. Sampo, written on themes taken from the Kalevala was first performed in Petrozavodsk on 27 March 1959. Numerous performances followed in Moscow (as part of a festival of Karelian art and literature held in August 1959), across the Soviet Union, and at an international festival in Helsinki (1962). Of Sinisalo's later ballets, the one that most closely resembles the earlier ballet in the dramatic sense is Kizhskaya legenda ‘A Kizhi Legend’ of 1973.

Epic, lyrical-pastoral and dance influences predominate in Sinisalo's music. In his miniatures these factors generally operate alone, while in large-scale works they are interwoven into a multi-faceted whole. Sinisalo's language was partly moulded by his feeling for 19th-century Russian music and that of Sibelius. His style equally developed from his studies of Finnish, Karelian, Russian and Vepsian folksong. He rarely quoted actual folk melody; rather, he conveyed their characteristic colouring.

Wow! my cup is over-flowing......

And thank you for the Grove information.


If someone is interested I will upload the SOUND file of his "Sampo" (1959) ballet. It's pretty interesting, something like Tchaikovsky-Sibelius-Khachaturian sound on it.

In fact, did it here (pretty rare stuff):
http://www.mediafire.com/?tomnmijni4j


Since I got started, here is also some additional information about some other 'celebrated' Soviet Karelian composers:

Ruvim Pergament (1906-1965) [-relative of the infamous Scandinavian Jewish composer brothers Moses Pergament and Simon Parmet (Pergament) ??]

- the 'Father' of Soviet Karelian music
- self-taught as a composer
- career's high-peak in the 1930s; vocal-symphony 'Aino' (1936)
- 'Karelian Suite' (1938)
- opera 'Kumoha' (1940) - the first Soviet Karelian opera !
- works: operas, oratorios, etc.

Karl 'Kalle' Rautio (1889-1963)

- originally from California, USA; moved to USSR in 1922
- 'The Karelian Wedding' (1926/38) for orchestra

Lauri Jousinen (1889-1948)

- originally from Detroit, Michigan; moved to USSR in 1931
- 'Northern Lustre' (1936) for orchestra

Leopold Teplitski (? - ?)

- 'Suite on Karelian Themes' (1939) for orchestra

Abram Golland (1911-1985) - Jewish ?

- some published chamber works, at least... director of Karelian symphony orchestra as well.


Thank you again !

For maybe 40% of the files we actually already have better scans kicking around.
