Post Subject: Mysterious Russian TrombonesPosted by Paul S on: 7/20/2008
Since I can't read Cyrillic/Russian, I may never know anything significant about these wonderful piano/trombone duets.
I am guessing from dates on the label that the compositions are from the early 1800s through the 1930s.

The album jacket is the usual-for-eastern-Europe thin-ish paper, with a dark-ish color photo of a couple of gigantic Czarist chandeliers hanging from a HIGH, fancy coffered ceiling.

Label is Melodya, stereo, "CM 01921-01922, 1.04.70; recordings are good, distant mike(s) in large reverberent space; sounds like omni or "S" set-ups.

The trombonist is truly remarkable, the accompanist very accomplished, and the compositions are quite interesting, as well.

I look forward to one day learning how to share pictures!  I need to start by figuring out how to get the picture files down from 8 megs!
