Found on the internet, these scans are not very easy on the eyes. However, until a better scan comes along, I'm still thankful that somebody went to the trouble of copying this large and rare volume. This contains pretty much all of B. Tchaikovsky's major vocal works.

contents:
- Poems (2) by M. Yu. Lermontov (1940); 1. Autumn, 2. Pine

- The Last Spring, vocal cycle on words by N. Zabolotsky, for mezzo-soprano, flute, clarinet, and piano (1980); 1. Joyful Mood, 2. Spring Movement, 3. The Sun has Risen, 4. Green Beam, 5. September, 6. Autumn, 7. Who Answered Me?
- Signs of the Zodiac, cantata for soprano, harpsichord, and string orchestra, on words by A. Blok, N. Zabolotsky, F. Tyutchev, and M. Tsvetayeva (1974); 1. Prelude, 2. Silence, 3. There, Far Away, 4. The Four Roads, 5. Signs of the Zodiac

Here are three volumes of romances by Vadim Veselov (1931-1990), a St. Petersburg-based composer who studied under Vadim Salmanov and Yuri Balkashin. Starting in the 1960s, he worked as an editor for the St. Petersburg (Leningrad) branch of the state publishing house 'Muzyka'. The large volume here and many of the volumes published by that branch bear the same distinctive cover design, i.e. giant three-dimensional treble clef (see also, Arkhimandritov's piano sonata, song cycles by Nagovitsin, Abeliovich, etc...). Considering his strong focus on Blok's poetry, it's not surprising that Veselov was the compiler of this previously-posted volume ( viewtopic.php?f=19&t=958&p=25019#p25019 ).

Anyhow, quite a few of his romances can be heard at the following page:

A somewhat well-known mid-century Soviet composer, Vadim Salmanov (1912-1978) was born in St. Petersburg and studied under Theodor Akimenko (theory) and Mikhail Gnesin (composition). He headed the composition department at Leningrad Conservatory from 1947-1951 and held various teaching posts throughout his life. According to Onno van Rijen, 'his early works are marked by a broad Russian melodism, with the harmonic structure following the models of Prokofiev and Shostakovich. After 1960 he adopted more advanced techniques, including polyphony.' His major works include four symphonies, six string quartets, two piano trios, a piano quartet, a sonata for piano and string orchestra, and numerous other orchestral, vocal, and stage works.

His symphonies, string quartets, and oratorio 'The Twelve (A. Blok)', are available on CD.

Biographical details for this composer can be found at:

https://translate.googleusercontent.com ... z5crOenNUA

The author's bio can be found at:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuil_Marshak

I understand that the composer's name is a transliteration of Dietz, but I've decided to go with the convention that's been used elsewhere (e.g. I believe both Alfor and the Sibley Library scanned copies of his first sonata).

Apologies for the large file size. If someone would like to edit it down to b&w, that would be a welcome bit of help!

Mikhail Dmitriyevich TITZ (TITS, etc.) (Ukraine)
Sun, vocal cycle on words by Samuil Marshak, for voice and piano, op. 42 (pub. 1969); 1. Sun, 2. Quietly swaying flowers, 3. I don't know when the nightingale flew in, 4. The forest is rustling, 5. I'm sorry, my love, 6. Start of the day

Related to the recent post in the string quartet thread, here is a volume of choral works and arrangements by Kalmykia-based composer Mikhail Grachev. This volume is a striking example of Soviet-era ethnomusicology, gathering together folk songs from numerous minority populations around the RSFSR, including some by indigenous peoples from the far north.

Thanks for the optimization, Jim!

Here are two volumes of romances from David Saliman-Vladimirov, who was born in Odessa, studied under Gliere and Vasilenko, and was a very prolific composer of 'official' works (e.g. oratorios about Marx, Engels, Lenin, etc...). A bio and works list can be seen at:

https://translate.googleusercontent.com ... wcLYJ6lUKA

As can be seen with the list, he was also a prolific writer of 'national' works, including many pieces inspired by Yakutia (today known as Sakha), the far-eastern Russian republic where he was situated for a number of years and where he played a musical leadership role.
