Thanks for introducing us to his music. It is certainly worth exploring IMO.

Enjoying Medtner's PC 3 (Tozer).  Planning to buy discs by other performers as well.

Just how does the Bernstein Symphony make it into a compilation like this?

Where's the family resemblance to the rest?

Only that Melodiya did have a certain preference for Western contemporary music with societal comments, when they took it up in recordings. They premiere-recorded the Nottingham Symphony by the British, communist composer Allan Bush, for example, and Honegger and Britten were also among their Western favourites. They'd avoid the more edgy, Western avant-garde from the 20th century.

I was thinking about buying another box called Treasures of World Music, but I should rather buy this set. Or, the both.  :)

Valere Burnon, a Belgian pianist who has studied in Germany, is one of the youngest promoters (22 years old) of the music of Protopopov.

He has a World Premiere recording of the Opus 32 Preludes by Serge Protopopov: I understand that he went to Russia to study the original manuscript.





Amazon Deutschland offers a download. 

Here is the announcement on Burnon's FaceBook page:

https://www.facebook.com/ValereBurnon/?ref=page_internal

An excellent performance of all the works listed!  Highly recommended, and not just for the rare Protopopov work!

Enjoyable, if not exceptional, recording.

Samples of Kalmykh music

Very nice - thanks. The second extract reminded me of 'The Butterfly Lover's Violin Concerto' (which I like).
"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

'The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good' (Stanley Kubrick).
