Quote from: Luke on June 13, 2023, 02:34:17 AMActually, to me no 5 looks a lot like a very famous piece, and the composer of that piece, although not this composer's father, was closely connected to him.
Quote from: classicalgeek on June 13, 2023, 04:56:55 AMNo. 3 is by Johann Christian Bach... "The London Bach". Makes some sense that he did arrangements of Scottish folk songs.
Quote from: Luke on June 13, 2023, 06:30:32 AMIs correct. And Florestan's guess for no 5, whilst not correct, is so pertinent that it reminds me why I love this thread so much.
Quote from: VonStupp on June 13, 2023, 07:15:32 AMSince you've posted it, #5 reminds me terribly of Mussorgsky's Pictures 'Promenade' (it would have to be the d minor one). It doesn't seem to fit the theme though and I have never looked at the piano score.VS
Quote from: Luke on June 13, 2023, 07:17:49 AMYes, that's the resemblance I meant. It looks so similar (but it isn't). So the resemblance is to Mussorgsky, not Rimsky, and the piece isn't by Soulima Stravinsky.
Quote from: Luke on June 13, 2023, 08:27:38 AMClose enough. The other brother, Georgy. Dad's link with Mussorgsky is obvious, including making this edition of the Pictures. Compare with his son's piece:

Quote from: Luke on June 13, 2023, 09:23:27 AMHmmmm, how to save face....?OK, how about: I don't know how you speak English in your country, but over here 'sons' means any direct male descendant, I thought that was obvious....does that work? No? What about: yes, Georgy, the son of the much better known Andrey, whose tunes I'm certainly whistling day and night.Actually - mea culpa! I'm not sure why I thought he was a son, I must have read it, or thought I'd read it somewhere. Funnily enough, I wrote (a bit) about him, in connection to experiments he made in microtonality, in a book I was writing a couple of years ago. So I must have known the truth then, and subsequently it morphed into this horrific aberration by which I am suitably appalled. I retreat into my hole of shame.
