    ****Youtube links for every piece below****

    These are obscure pieces that once existed on out-of-print CDs but now make their home on youtube, so it would only be appropriate for me to provide links so that this game is more enjoyable.

    Unfortunately, it appears that the Lyatoshynsky has been taken down from youtube in the intervening period from when I first made this game to now.

    Mosolov: Piano Sonata no. 2 [1923-1924]
    Mosolov: Piano Sonata no. 5 [1925]
    Mosolov: Piano Concerto no. 1 [1926-1927]
    Obukhov: Révélation [1915]
    Obukhov: Le Livre de la vie [1924?] (only the preface has ever been recorded)

    Polovinkin: Piano Sonata no. 4, op. 18 [1926-1927]

    The sheer variety of musical styles by Soviet composers at this time (mid 1910s - early 1930s) is pretty incredible.

    Avraamov and Mosolov are full-blown acolytes of futurism.
    Feinberg sounds like Rachmaninov but with more "bite".
    Lourié sounds like post-Rite but pre-neoclassical Stravinsky.
    The Lyatoshynsky (if it were still available) sounded like a carbon-copy of Alban Berg's SQ from 1910.
    Obukhov sounds like a proto-Messiaen.
    Polovinkin sounds like Prokofiev but with more "bite".
    Popov anticipates Shostakovich by a few years.
    Roslavets sounds like a more formalized Scriabin.
    Shcherbachov sounds like French neoclassicism.
    Wyschnegradsky is one of the first major composers of microtonal music.
    And last but not least, Protopopov seems to be exploring totally uncharted territory (i.e. his music is pretty unclassifiable); it's a shame he only wrote 3 or 4 pieces.

    He wrote a lot more than 3 or 4 pieces (see here for a complete list), but the vast majority of his output has yet to recover from Soviet condemnation. There's going to be a recording of his Op. 32 preludes coming soon, so I look forward to that.
