    My Essential Classical Albums.

    I believe his ballet music – Gayane, Spartacus is most famous with moments of great beauty. Masquerade is worth to check as well. I can not recommend any particular recording of these at the moment, but guess any decent Soviet recording of suites from these could work, Svetlanov’s maybe. Once I had an LP with ballet music suites conducted by composer himself but that was of rather archival quality.

    I could go for Prokofiev piano concertos any day. Argerich shines here, agree. From recent recirdings Yuja Wang comes to memory with No.2

    Some of most interesting ex-Soviet composers are or were not Russians. Everybody knows Pärt. Valentin Silvestrov has a lot of excellent recordings for ECM. From earlier composers Aram Khachaturian was very good.

    I am not sure I deserve a honor to be kept in your memory) anyway, I am in India for cold part of the year, and not bother much about Soviet “music”... We all know too well bad or secondary things in the world have at least the same if not more visible tribe of followers, as things good and original. Happy listening!

    Is it somehow related to Maria Schneider? Her Cerulean Skies composition from Sky Blue album is one of astonishing beauty.

    I glad you’ve done with Richter. When I see someone recommends Richter for whatever reason I skip all other recommendations from the same source. Need to check Celine Frischs, even if harpsichord is not so involving and may be difficult to my ears sometimes.

    Comparing of his two versions of Goldbergs is a joy.

    Schiff’s Bach is very dear to me
  10. Well, then be ready - when cossacs will play it alive in your backyard it will be late to beg for stop..)
  11. I rather believe Horace is saying: be here, throw away futile thoughts about something which may never come, but most important of all: stop listening red army music!
