A big thanks to Malcolm for his Kazakhfest. Here are a four more Zhubanova files: my cleaned version of the Four Preludes and three other pieces from an unknown set. (I believe the same set from which the Legend Malcolm uploaded originates.) --nms--

--edit--
They appear to be from Twelve Pieces for Children and Young People for Piano. See this page for a listing of her published works (will need to be translated):

Thank you very much Jim Faston for your nice scans!

On IMSLP I found a composer whose name is Vladimir Drozdov. His piano music is quiet interesting. Does somebody have more of his works (Piano Sonatas)? On IMSLP there are unfortunately only a few works by him.
Best regards

I found quite a number, including four piano sonatas, on IMSLP. He is not to be confused with Anatole, of whom there are pieces on IMSLP as well as on this site..

Anatoly (?) is his brother I think. Would be interesting to discover the other Piano Sonatas 1 - 11, 13 and 15 - 16

Jim - first, many thanks for the Zhubanova, and a translation of the list of published pieces / works attached.

WalterNiemann - Yes, Vladimir is the brother to Anatoli, a few of his works were published in Russia but many works were published during the 1950s by a very obscure publisher in New York, and the family are now allowing some works to appear on IMSLP and there has recently been a new printing of a number of works by the composer. I'll see if I can locate the publisher for you. There are a number of performances on YouTube as well. Many of Drozdov's works were never published and that includes many of the sonatas (a fuller list of works is included in my 'book' in the Literature section of this website).

Vladimir Drozdoff

May find the attached works list of interest - covers everything known to date.

The new album of works, I mentioned, has either been published or is due to be published by the Drozdoff Society - so you can search for the album on-line. Contains the majority of works that were orignally published by the composer in the USA. Unfortunately, the remainder of his works are in manuscript, which alas includes many of the piano sonatas (and think most of these are now held by the St Petersburg Conservatoire as a gift from the composer's family).

Thank you very very much Malcolm!

I didn't know that Drozdov composed that much!
Best regards

Thanks indeed, Malcolm. It is a shame so many of Drozdoff's compositions remain unpublished.

Mikhail Fabianovich Gnessin (1883-1957)
From Shelley, Op.4 (Arranged for piano 4 Hands) / To Children, Op.27 / Little Pieces, Op.29

Although Mikhail Gnessin wrote many interesting works, his name is largely forgotten! And it seems that no musicologists are interested in his excellent output.
I tried to edit these files, but due to some glitches in these files I couldn't do it. Can somebody clean up these scores?
