...and here's volume 9, which still includes a few foreign names, though not nearly as many as before. It's interesting to see a prelude by Richard Cumming, a fairly unsung American composer who wrote decidedly tonal works. Lots of sonatinas here:

Sad Moment, 7. Evening Tale, 8. Mechanical Ballerina, 9. Grim Knight, 10. Dance Lesson, 11. Rain Dance, 12. Cheerful Ditty (1970-80)

Gliere - Romance Op.16 No.2.mp3
Hi Guys,
I attach with a huge amount of humility a recording from 2004 of me playing the Romance. It was recorded on a minidisc at some distance from the piano in a converted chapel with swimming pool acoustics. I admit to being quite pleased with the performance under the difficult circumstances as it was recorded in a public concert and you don't get two chances to do what you know you can do, so please don't judge it too harshly. I will say though that I think it is better than the link Parag found. Why it has never been properly recorded baffles me it is a glorious piece of music.
best wishes
Brian
Brian,

Thanks you so much for the score and for posting your beautiful, sensitive, and virile performance of the Romance. I had been planning on learning the Gliere Op.30 No.9 Prelude when I finish the Bortkiewicz Op.10 Ballade, but now this Romance has enchanted me, so it will be next.

Thanks remy, compliments greatly appreciated.
Incidentally from this weekend I am playing a series of house concerts (Rachmaninov and Rimsky-Korsakov) with my soprano and I will be playing the Gliere along with the Arensky Elegie Op.16 and the Glinka Nocturne Razluka (La separation) which is also a neglected gem in my opinion, as intermezzi between the groups of songs and arias.
regards
Brian

just a friendly FYI and 're-up', I just purchased both volumes from an antique dealer and was pleased to find out that volume II was digitized by the folks at google (via their collaborative imaging project). Volume I is here on the old PP archive, but a search did not yield any mention of volume II in the old board archive or here on the active PP.

This can be downloaded from google but I went ahead and created a direct link:

Modern Russian Piano Music Volume II - Liadoff to Wrangell (Ditson, 1915)
http://www.mediafire.com/?pk8v41x0b036ccy
these two books are wonderful collections, and as hard copies, quite beautiful, highly recommend picking up any surviving copies if folks come across them, nice hefty large scores.

FYI for folks that may have missed it-
Vol I

Thanks for the effort, but that's not the piece in question.
