In searching for some biographical information on Tyrmand (see below) I also found these three pieces.

Malcolm

Eta Moiseevna Tyrmand. Born 1917, Warsaw : died 2008. Belarus composer and teacher.

In 1938 she graduated from choral faculty of the Warsaw Conservatoire, after studies with Kazuro: graduated again in 1949 after studies in piano with Shershevsky at the Belarusian Conservatoire, and in 1952 after studies in composition with Bogatyreva.

From 1941-1947, taught at various music colleges, and was the piano accompanist at the Opera and Ballet Theatre in Frunze. From 1949, teacher at the Belarus Conservatoire (since 1979 as Associate Professor), and a music school in Minsk (to 1962).

The Humoresque and Impromptu of Alexander Tsfasman. -nms- but I did a bit of cleanup on them.

Hi Jim

Many thanks for the Tsfasman.........anything by him always welcomed.

And I did wonder if the Maykapar is the Arietta from the Op 22 Grande Sonatina............I have very poor copies of the 1st & 4th movements but have yet to come across copies of the inner movements........and it doesn't match the Arietta from Op 6 Peteite Suite, so hopeful it is the piece I want.

It may well be from another work - I checked everything I could find. There is a works list in progress on IMSLP that lists three Ariettas for piano solo: one from Op.6 and one from Op.22, neither of which I have copies of and one in Op.8 which is a different piece.

Thanks Jim - did check my own worklists, and have copies of the other works, hence why I surmised it may be from the Op 22 Grande Sonatine. Until I can see a complete score of the Op 22, I can only hope !

And many thanks for the recent Tsfasman - always greatly appreciated.

Hi! I have a question on an edition: I am tempted to buy the big and cheap Boosey book with complete Etudes, Preludes and Moments Musicaux by Rachmaninov but I'm a little dubious regarding the print and score quality.
Can someone give me a very rapid insight on this edition? Obviously for the price I don't expect a masterwork of engraving art, but only a well legible edition.
Thank you a lot :D

Thanks for scores! Malcolm's awesome encyclopedia says that he is I.V. Pokrovsky, and there're publications by Jurgenson. The only information about him in russian internet is that he died in 1906 and he lived in Saint-Petersburg, where he was involved into organization of "modern music evenings", which are famous because of russian premiers of music by Debussy, Ravel, Franck, Stravinsky, Prokofiev and many other composers of that period. I can also check some libraries and maybe even archives to find more information (for example, his full name), so I'll write when and if I will know something.

I have a list of other works in my 'book' in the literature section. Would seem his first name was Ivan.......not sure if that helps Nikita ? Any further information would be wonderful.
