I remain fascinated by the whole concept of piano concertos for children. Quite unheard of in my experience, but perhaps at some of the so-called "school-of-the arts". Alas, musical culture in the US is a far cry from that of Europe & Russia and as a composer it would never ever occur to me write for such a venue since it's highly unlikely to find one, yet looking at all these highly interesting pieces on offer from Russia that caostotale has unearthed for us, these works speak for themselves.

I must say "FORTH-ed". :D

You are all welcome. To be sure, I didn't scan any of these. They all come from the following Russian-language site, which is likely pretty tricky to navigate for those of us who don't read Cyrillic:

http://ale07.ru/index.html

This is also the source of many of my other pedagogical contributions (see the threads on bayan, guitar, or several of the children's piano books on the regular Russian/Soviet thread). I figured I would relay the items of interest to Pianophilia as I translated them for my own personal cataloging/research.

Fleubis: I find myself consistently taken aback by the ridiculous amounts of pedagogic material and songbooks that were churned out during the Soviet era. Some of the 'repertoire' and 'concert piece' series (especially for genre-crossover instruments like guitar, bayan, and accordion) have volumes numbering up to #50 and beyond. I particularly enjoy the 'Young Pianist's Library' volumes that have done quite a bit to introduce me to new composers from largely-obscured parts of that massive territory (i.e. the volumes dedicated to Buryatian, Uzbek, Uralic composers etc...). While I'm certain that a lot of the work is probably boilerplate, I enjoy digging up unheard-of composers' biographies and learning of new symphonic cycles, concertos, and other serious works that might be worth a closer look.

caostotale, I commend your research into this all but forgotten era. While much of it lies in well deserved obscurity and plainly hack work, there are hidden gems here that need to be unearthed. Glad you are giving us all the chance to explore this material.

Well said, Fleubis. A big thank you to Caostotale for all effort!
Best regards, Ferruccio

Hello dear Members!

Does anybody have information of Alexander Mosolov's Piano Concerto, No.2?

Thank you!

Or in English:

„You live in Helsinki, correct?“

(Which would mean that Emil definitely knows the meaning of the alias „isokani“ - but what are the characteristic attributes of an „isokani“?!)
