Mr Gorchakov is better known on record than might be thought.

But this is the entire Wikipedia article on him
Quote
Sergei Petrovich Gorchakov (Russian: Сергей Петрович Горчаков; 10 February 1905 – 4 July 1976) was a Russian classical music composer.[1] Gorchakov is best known for his uniquely 'Russian' orchestration of Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky.

This is his entry in the list of  PAAE orchestrations
Quote
Sergei Gorchakov[25] (1954: recorded by Kurt Masur and the London Philharmonic for Teldec; Also recorded with Karl Anton Rickenbacher, conducting the Cracow Radio Symphony, for the RCA Records. A live 1980 performance by the Leningrad Academic Symphony Orchestra under Konstantin Simeonov was recorded by Melodya.)

Google did not show those recordings but did show one on Naxos and one by the Fort Worth Symphony (its own label I think).

Thanks, Jeffrey. Conductor there was to be New Zealander Gemma New.
Which concerto?  Actually, doesn't matter.  That's a big loss.

I'm thinking I pass on live musical events until after I receive a vaccine, or have been infected and survived the virus.  I would prefer the former.

See, now I'm imagining how Abduraimov would handle the cadenza.  Other than splendidly, I mean.
