Re: Tchaikovsky's November

I have a CD of Rachmaninoff playing this piece via a Bosendorfer 290SE Reproducing Piano. The CD is the second of two featuring this Reproducing Piano, both entitled "A Window in Time", the first featuring all SVR's works recorded on piano rolls, the second featuring his transcriptions of ...

Re: Alexander Siloti

Hi, StewH here, if I may....Siloti's father's name was Ilya, thus Siloti's "patronymic" was Ilyich.

Re: adagio from Cello Sonata Horowitz & Rostropovich

A beautiful performance, no doubt! But have you viewed the videos of Karel Bredenhorst and his pianist (not accompanist!), Sofja Gulbadanova, on the same site? All four movements of the sonata are there--such a performance, it was most moving. With young musicians such as these two performing SVR's ...

There appears to have been some spam posted here and a couple of other places. That's what my comment was aimed at. 8)

Re: 20th and 21st century artists Influenced

Marianne, Which version of Rachmaninoff's 4th do you know? The original 1926 one doesn't sound split at all - it's actually quite logical! Daniel & Marianne--It is Max Harrison's opinion, and one that I share, by the way, that since the manuscript of the 1926 version has been published, there i...

Earl Wild's paraphrases

No one has mentioned Earl Wild's transcriptions/paraphrases of several of SVR's songs. Harrison mentions them in his SVR biography, and I have ordered them from Amazon.com. Looking forward to hearing them with a view toward evaluating them as "another set of Etudes-Tableaux," in Harrison's...

I wonder - is it possible to cut out all the archive video out of that film and make a separate movie?


I wouldn't want to guess at the problems you would encounter in attempting to edit the original film--all in all, probably not a good idea.
