Piano Concerti No.2 and 3 by Alemdar Karamanov
Anybody have any idea of a recording of the first and second piano concerti?

Benjamin Khaet - Piano Concerto

Cheers

Brilliant - many thanks Lutoslawski - lovely clean copies. And also a new composer to me.....Khaet.

And not aware of any recordings of the Karamanov concertos beyond No. 3..........he wasn't well thought of by the Soviet authorities, and it remains to be seen if anyone would have commercially record these to date.....but we can hope.

Thanks for the Karamanov. There exists a nice website about the composer with recordings and excerpts thereof along with some poor quality scans of his music.

Thank you so much for that. The recording is one of the most stunning piano performances I have ever heard - the semiquaver passages are of MIDI quality. I would love to play these pieces, but could never match the velocity of the recording, and, more important, I don't have the extra-large hands which I think would be a must-have to play this music (note how little, if at all, the large chords are spread in no.7 and elsewhere).

You're doing some wonderful work. These preludes are incredible.

Lately I am hooked to the music of Igor Shamo after hearing this complete piano music recording:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpUksTE ... sJdk8eXEno

After looking for some of the scores here and elsewhere, I don't seem to find the following:
Ukrainian Suite (only no 2 - Vesnyanka and no 6 - Dance are available. Alfor's one circulated here, seems to be his son's identically named suite)
Songs of friendship (only no 3 - Romanian Song is available)
Classic suite (no 4 - Courante is available)
Three Dances (nothing available)

Could not find also any place to order them online. Does anybody have more info about that?

Also, I am happy to share the sheets here if anybody is interested and if it's allowed of course.

Unfortunately Ukrainian music is very hard to find outside of Ukraine..........all these works would have been published back during the Soviet period and I doubt they would ever be republished by a more major global publisher. All you can do is see if a copy comes up through one of the many 2nd hand music retailers, ABE or one of the Russian sites mentioned on Pianophilia etc. But in all the years I've been researching, I have rarely come across any of his music (primarily because when they were published they were in small quantities and Ukrainian composers tend to be more obscure than their Russian counter-parts). Alternatively, you could try the National Ukrainian Library - try getting any e-mail sent in Ukrainian, as you're more likely get a response - but I suspect because of copyright, they may refuse copies. Alternatively, try to contact the pianist, Dimitri Tchesnokov either through any on-line site for him, or via the recording company, Piano Classics..........say how much you enjoyed his performance, and ask where he obtained his scores..........sometimes musicians may share their scores (have done this many times with a pretty good success rate).
