Re: In-Between: The Microtonal Universe - Ivan Wyschnegradsky

I will not pretend to understand much Russian, but this critic, Anton Dolin, has a "radio" show on YouTube.

After some movie reviews, he starts talking about Ivan Wyschnegradsky, gives background information which mentions Scriabin, and then offers an excerpt of a work by Wyschnegradsky for two pianos tuned a quarter-tone apart.

Go to 10:12 for the start of the segment, which is not particularly long.  The music of Wyschnegradsky starts c. 11:49.

This link about Ivan Wyschnegradsky is much more substantial and is in English.  It was part of a Ph.D. presentation at Harvard University:
