  • Ippolitov-Ivanov Caucasian Sketches

    Can I confirm who did the music that was previously done of the "Caucasian Sketches" by this composer with VSL?  I am going to finish the Procession of the Sardar and wish to present it with the other movements which I remember being very good.  Please reply to this thread....

  • William,

    That was me! I'm glad you liked them, and I've been looking forward to hearing your rendition of Procession of the Sardar.


  •  thanks Brian - you did all three of the others?

  • I only did the second and third movements. I'd like to do the first, but I think it would be a bit beyond my abilities.

  •  O.K. - who did the first movement?  I can't remember but it was an excellent performance.  Or maybe I am hallucinating a memory and it was never done...  [8-)]

  • I actually don't remember ever hearing a VSL version of the first movement. I started with "In a Village" and then later did "In a Mosque", but I didn't think anyone did the "In a Mountain Pass" bit. If someone did, I'd love to hear it.

  •  So someone has to do it!  Uh-oh... 

  • I'm looking at the score now. It's tempting, but I think it might take me a year to do it. And even then, I'd probably spoil it...

  • No way would you spoil it.

    Not to put any pressure on you...

    However, Ippolitov-Ivanov may be doing so.  If you awaken in the middle of the night in a cold sweat with a strange Russian hovering over your bed, you will know why.

  • I was wondering who that was...
