Dear Opus23#10 - and of course I thought of you first of all when I've came across this marvelous photo. You've sent it to me printed in the newspaper and that photo in the newspaper is much more dear to me than this one, though this one is more "clear" : - )
I can't believe I never updated my favourite topic on this board for almost three months!
And there were new photos that I came across in this period. One from ebay:
With Sir Henry Heyman - violinist,
picture taken in Bohemian Club Grove
And my group in Russian facebook - vkontakte - there are already 8 563 members in it now!http://vkontakte.ru/club5026591
You can congratulate me! Especially because I never developed it in these three months!
May be because I have a good support - among the administrators of SVR's group is Denis Evstuhin, I mention this name because he is not just the ordinary human being like me but a true pianist : - )
You can listen to his new record of SVR's Sonata here:
Among other new records on youtube you can watch
Igor Tchetuev playing Rachmaninov Paganini Rhapsody
We've studied in the same music school in Sebastopol, Crimea with this guy, I am happy that he plays Rachmaninoff!
As for interesting records around SVR on youtube - there are "new" records where one can check
Arthur Nikisch conducts Carnival Romain (1920)
Nikisch conducts Weber Oberon Overture
and a friend of mine brought me the disk of the compositions by ISSAY DOBROWEN
envy me! this one:
and youtube*com/user/Beckmesser2 keeps downloading on youtube rare records from the collection known as The Dawn of Recording - ot the teachers of SVR playing - Taneev, Pabst and Arensky.
