Dear Gamma1734,

Thank you for sharing this awesome waltz! I was wondering why you described this score as a waltz by Alexander Sheremetev if the cover says that this is an opus by O.D. Sheremeteva (a woman). Here is some information on her:

Olga Dmitrievna Sheremeteva, born Skobeleva (1847-1898), maid of honor of the court, daughter of Lieutenant General D.I. Skobelev from his marriage to O.N. Poltavtseva; sister of the hero of the Russian-Turkish war, General M. D. Skobelev. In 1871, she married Vasily Petrovich Sheremetev (1836-1893), Lieutenant of the Cavalier Guard Regiment, large landowner of the Nizhny Novgorod province, owner and builder of the Yurinskaya estate (Sheremetevsky castle).
Olga Dmitrievna Sheremeteva was fond of floriculture and music. She was a student of the famous singer Pauline Viardot, under whose guidance she composed romances, waltzes, marches. During the Russian-Turkish war Olga Sheremeteva war a sister of mercy. She died in her estate in the Ryazan province.
It would be great if you corrected the name of the composer in the description on YouTube under your wonderful performance of Feuillet d'Album, Valse [1887].

Best regards,
Olga

You can listen to the first movement of his first sonata here: https://musescore.com/user/4151271/scores/7635548

His sonatas appear to be dodecaphonic with Caucasian influences

Thanks for your reply. The link didn't work as this was the message I saw "Oops! This score is unavailable".

Thanks. It works this time. His sonatas are very different than his jazz preludes. Not jazzy at all in this case.

Hence my warning. He's not alone among Soviet composers in having output divided into serial academic, folk-derived, juvenile and jazz/popular modes.

Trying to find the sheet music for this had no luck on IMSLP or other sites. Registered here but can't find it.

Here is the piece played by Gamma1734 on you tube.



Any help is appreciated

One of the three main Russian sites mentioned in Gamma's how to find music.
NB It's always wise to work in the source language for searches i.e. (Google-)translate to Russian/French/...

Yeah I was thinking about making another video specifically for the tarakanov one, because
it's a great site. Maybe together with the starinnye one, but right now Im too busy
with other things
