Help with Russian & Cyrillic

Post by rob » Thu Oct 08, 2009 5:55 am

A little guide to Composer's names in Cyrillic found on the internet and amended and corrected by me a few years ago. There were a few spelling mistakes and transliterations with which I disagreed; and I have added a handful of further examples. Should anyone wish to revise the document and post an updated version I would have no objection at all.

Good idea, Rob, and a very useful list.

Very helpful list, Rob. My piano is piled with scores from my Russian piano teacher, including many without the English translation pencilled in. Now I can figure out what they are again. (It's difficult being senile.)

10 out of 10 Rob for initiative and a damn sensible and very useful list. Hopefully might save me having to translate other people's postings in future [think I'm being over optimistic here] :D !!
