Stcherbachev? Which composer is this?

Post by Pianoman » Tue Jun 09, 2020 10:54 am

I have another one for you guys: "Stcherbachev"

I've found two possibilities for a first name:
1- Nikolai, author of "Bagarrures-petit supplement"
2- Vladimir, author of a piano transcription of Glazunov's "Danse de Salome"

The Stcherbachev I want is the author of a Piano Etude called (in portuguese) "Tormenta" ("Torment" or "storm" in english, maybe)


Any help about this composer?

No! never thought of the "yov" ending! Thanks!

What i've found:
List of works by Nikolay (uncle): https://imslp.org/wiki/List_of_works_by ... herbachyov
List of works by Vladimir (nephew): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Shcherbachov (not very detailed)

Neither lists has the work I'm looking for (Etude "Tormenta") or anything that resembles it...

After a little more search I'm almost sure that the work "Tourment" it is from Nikolay Shcherbachyov (Stcherbacheff) because I've found a list of his works and it seems that his Op.26 (Fantaisie-Etudes) contains two parts: 1. "Sous bois" and 2. "Tourment":

I have a scan of Op.26 (it's on IMSLP also)
Stcherbacheff, Nikolay - Fantaisie-Etudes, Op.26 (pf).pdf
and it's called "Fantaisie-Etudes, but I can't quite see where the part 2 ("Tourment") starts because the work looks like a suite with many parts. This goes accordingly with Stcherbacheff's work list at the end of Op.26 (it says "formant suite"...):

Any lights on this matter?
Thanks

Those aren’t from the Op.26 set, rather they are the Deux fantaisie-études pour piano (WoO) issued by Bessel.

See page 116 of Pazdírek here:

I think you meant page 118.
And there is also page 119 where "Tourmente" is the title of the page(!) and also says it was issued separately by Leduc.

Yes. It's the first of the 2 pieces you mentioned before. I couldn't find the one I'm looking for, though...

Thank you so much! that will be a great tool for me!

Many thanks Jim, to take some of your valuable time helping me.


EDIT: I can't seem to find Pazdírek's Volume 26 in any language... (ENG, FRE, GER)
