A recording project here.

A number of lo-res JPGs of (piano and other) manuscripts start here.

There are a number of recordings on YouTube. The Nocturne, Op.38 is quite nice...

...as is Mélancolie, Op.76

Here are PDFs of Mélancolie and the Nocturne. I resampled the JPGs up bit with a minor improvement. Still not great.Nocturne, Op.38 (MS) larger.pdfMélancolie, Op.76 (MS) larger.pdf

There has to be a published edition of some of his music - any info on same please share with us.
Here's a published edition of the Melancolie Op.76, i couldn't find one for the Nocturne.

Not to be uploaded. Stravinsky still very much under copyright.

Unfortunately, there is only half a piece (Melancolie) in the file. Is it possible to add the missing pages? Please...

Thank you so much for the quick response! This is very mesmerizing music. So sad and touching... I've never heard of this composer before. Now I'm in search for his music. Do you happen to possess his other piano pieces? I would be very grateful to you.

It appears to be from a collection of his piano music issued in 2010. I haven't seen a copy.

I hope folks can perhaps help a little with the translation, I am including a rough 'google-ified' part but welcome revisions for a more accurate table of contents of composers and titles, also there is a name on the inside cover that seems to be an editor but it may be also the arranger as it seems to state 'version by' so perhaps he did all the transcribing and arranging?

Russian - Tango for Piano Russian edition Noty Танго для фортепиано.pdf

редактор-составитель А. Полонский
Russian - Tango for Piano Russian edition Noty Танго для фортепиано.docx
towards the end:
Number number 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17, 19, 21, 22, 23 - Treatment A. Polonsky.
Number number 1, 3, 4, 9, 20 - Transcription A. Polonsky. Number 18-B treatment Lyudvikovsky

not too sure what they mean by the difference in Transcription vs. Treatment? Does that mean the Transcriptions were already in Tango form and Polonsky just set them for piano solo? and The others may or may not have been in piano solo form and Lyudvikovsky simply did the Tango versions and Polonsky just took those and then set to piano? More than a little confusing, but it's a great album. I'm learning the first as a complete play through of the book is a goal of mine at the moment, I have always liked that Babajanian melody.


Bonus points for anyone that can give us the meaning of the handwriting :)
The book was someone's gift. The handwriting says: To dear Olechka on the day of graduation from the music school. May music always sound in your house! May 24, 1984.
