Interesting. I didn't like the Gavotte too much. I preferred some of the others.

Hi TwoSnowflakes,

If you've listened to Kosenko's 7. Gavotte a lot, it could mean that it inspires you, which in turn might indicate that you could learn and play it yourself. If that should happen, please record and post it here. You'd be raising awareness of that music, thus serving the composer very well.

Hi Damon,

A double thank you again!

It saddens me every time I think of Bortkiewicz's Yugoslav Suite locked away in an archive since 1940! It's astounding to think that it has never been printed or circulated to sheet music stores, and of course never played for that matter. One theory is that in 1940 modern styles of piano music were still evolving. For example, the piano as a percussive, rather than lyrical instrument, figured more into the new styles. So maybe Rahter Publishing deemed these works of Bortkiewicz, in their late romantic splendor, to be too old fashioned and contrary to modernism.

It was worth a trip to Piano Street! Thracozag (Koji Atwood) has posted a handful of interesting Borkiewicz here as well.

Hi Damon,

The best feature at Piano Street in Audition Room is the Index to Audition Room found at the top left of Page 1 over the listing of recordings. The Index is alphabetical by composer, with the pianists under any composer also in alphabetic order my name being rachfan). Using the Index, you can find everything far more easily than having to search through many pages. You may have already used it, but others have not noticed it yet.
