As with many of her later works, the music explores folk themes from the far-eastern regions of Soviet Russia (in addition to Yakutian themes, her work represented the folk musics of Bashkir, Buryat, Kazakh, Kirghiz, Tatar, Uzbek, and Mongolian peoples).

For my own part, this was a landmark etude in how not to damage an extremely old, brittle, and oddly-shaped miniature score.

Enjoy,

Varvara GAIGEROVA
String Quartet no. 2, 'on Yakutian folk themes', op. 17

(the piece has quite a few pages and was just large enough to be too big for attachment).
Does anyone have any idea where to find her symphonies, or anything else (besides the viola piece and piano works)?

I couldn't find biographical info on this composer. The mugham form is usually associated with Azerbaijani music, though I've seen the composer referred to as 'Russian'. This is yet another work that was published in a Soviet compilation volume in the late 1980s, ever a good source of obscure works by nearly-unknown composers.

Akin to Prokofiev, Kabalevsky composed only two string quartets during his career. I've not yet happened upon the first quartet, which like many other Russian works of the 1920s-30s, was published as a miniature score by Universal-Edition A.G. Like the Mosolov quartet, that one is considerably rare.

Here's a folk-inspired quartet work by a Georgian (or Abkhaz) composer who studied under Myaskovsky. According to the bio, he penned a total of six numbered quartets over the course of his career. I'm not sure if this 1938 publication counts as the first of these. Nos. 2 and 3 are listed as available (though rare) on Worldcat. The rest I've not seen anywhere. Based on the time period, I would assume that, if published at all, they were published by the Georgian SSR state publisher like Tsintsadze's and Gabichvadze's quartets. Bio at:
