Hello everyone!
I know that this is a shot in the dark and probably sounds crazy!
I collect piano books and was interested in knowing the name of a Russian piano book in which, the 17th piece is "Little Rondo" by C. Maikapar.
It is written in Russian and I cannot spell it, but the translation is little rondo by C. Maikapar. I only have pgs. 22-24 which have this piece and so, have no clue which book it is.
Has anyone seen this book? I'll be very grateful if someone shares which book it is.
Thanks in advance!

I think the Little Rondo may be by Samuel Maykapar.
I'm at work right know, but I'm doing a search as soon as I get home.

C. Maikapar or Samuel Maykapar, neither of them is listed on IMSLP. However, this You Tube recital of "Little Rondo" uses the spelling Maikapar for it's composer. I couldn't find anything listed for either of them in the catalogue at our City Central Library. I hope someone solves the mystery for you...and me.

Thank you, Bluebilly.

That's the piece....but I need the book in which it is published. It is Russian.
One more thing....It is indeed S.Maikapar. See, I used the translator and C in Russian translates to S in English.
The exact translation of the tittle is as follows:
Rondo, Sonatina, Variations
17. Little Rondo. S.Maikapar
This is on Pg. 22 of the book.

While googling around a bit, I found this:

"Майкапар, С. Маленькое рондо / комп. С. Майкапар. - С .22-24"

which, according to by very rudementary Russian knowledge means:
"Maykapar, S. Little Rondo / Comp: S. Maykapar - p. 22-24"

Incidentially it is also the 17th song in the book, so maybe this is the one you're looking for. The book is called
"Советская фортепианная классика для детей"
which translates to
"Soviet piano classics for children"

Googling for the name of the book (in cyrillic, just copy-paste it) does bring up some bibliographic references from public libraries but I could not find any online bookshops.

Hope this helps anyway.

I bet a Russian bookstore could help you find a copy.
