Jonathan - much looking forward to hearing your CD, agree with Seth, your recordings with Toccata are firm favourites.

Caostotale - excellent , many thanks for the Nikolayev sonata.

Yuri Vladimirovich Kochurov (1907-1952)
Adagio, Op.5 (1934)

A pupil of Vladimir Shcherbachev (1887-1952). He mainly composed small romances and film scores, but also composed some dense and well-crafted works such as Cello Sonata Op.1 and this 'Adagio, Op.5' for piano. This piece was performed by Maria Yudina (1899-1970) in the besieged Leningrad in 1943. It's a very impressive late-romantic piece.

Thank you Jim! I love this work. So impressive!

Leonid Polovinkin (1894-1949)
Lyrical Dance, Op.21 No.2

I am sure that his name needs little introduction on this forum.

Boris Alexandrov (1905-1994)
2 Pieces, Op.1

He is commonly known as the leader of Alexandrov Ensemble, but he was also a composer. Here are 2 Pieces by him. Very interesting.

Julian Krein (1913-1996)
8 Preludes, Op.5

Very precocious works, indeed. There are some French influences and traces of Scriabin. These were dedicated to Nikolai Zhilyayev (1881-1938).

Tyulin was born in Tallin.

Yuri Nikolayevich Tyulin (1893-1978), the creator of fundamental concepts of music theory, which were developed by him in various branches of musical scholarship: mode, harmony, texture, musical thematicism, motives, musical syntax and musical form as fundamental categories of musical thinking. Yuri Tyulin is a scholar, who made a significant contribution to research of theoretical issues of the folk music of Russia, Armenia, Georgia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and the Baltic countries. He interpreted in an original way the issues of folk songs, musical performance practice, music history, musical aesthetics and musical psychology. The special merit of the article is that it was written by a musician who, being one of Tyulin's closest students, and having analyzed the scholar's works, discloses the quintessence of his scholarly ideas and discoveries, the functional theory of music, a new interpretation of the principles of form-generation and a new systematization of musical forms, the construction of musical speech, the phenomenon of "crystallization of thematicism" and modal theory, which makes possible to comprehend the scholarly and artistic legacy of Yurli Nikolayevich Tyulin in a systemic manner.

Thank you so much, parag!

and ilu - I know, he was born in Tallinn. But he studied under Nikolai Sokolov in Petrograd and spent most of his life in Moscow and Leningrad. So I decided to upload the file on this thread :)
