OVSYANIKO-KULIKOVSKY, Nikolai Dmitrievich (1768-1846)

Symphony No. 21 in g minor

It seems that this symphony was the handiwork of Mikhail Emmanuilovich Goldstein (1917-1989). The Symphony was 'discovered' in 1948 by him in the archives of the Odessa Conservatory, where he was then a librarian. It was premiered in Odessa and Kiev in 1948, and published in 1951 by the Soviet State Music Publishers and edited by A.G. Svechnikov for the modern orchestra. OVSYANIKO-KULIKOVSKY was an actual historical figure and landowner who had presented his serf orchestra to the Odessa Theater in 1810. Goldstein immigrated to East Germany in 1964, leaving the madness of this hoax behind him. [See Allan Ho and Dmitry Feofanov, Biographical Dictionary of Russian/Soviet Composers (Greenwood Press, 1989), pp. 182-183.]

Hiroshi Yasuda indicated and Kenzo Amoh confirmed that Praga PR 254017 and BMG(Japan) BVCX 4026 are identical, since the timings of the individual movements are same, and, furthermore, because PR 254017 sounds like a studio recording.

CD: Hunt 2HUNTCD 714 (1990), 2 disc set
CD: Arkadia CGDI 714.2, 2 disc set
Hunt 2HUNTCD 714 claims the performance came from the 1961/8/14 live performance in Bergen, but this date is dubious. Mravinsky gave a concert on June 12 in Helsinki (See Shostakovich's 5th in BROADCASTS ON RADIO AND TELEVISION.) and a concert on June 24 in Bergen (See Beethoven's 3rd.). The date of this recording is probably some day in June of that year. The Bergen Festival usually starts around the birthday of Edvard Grieg, June 15.

MISATTRIBUTIONS, UNCERTAIN RECORDINGS, AND FAKES

Glazunov: Symphony No. 8

WERM3-178 attributes the recording on Old Melodiya D 01460/1 to Mravinsky/Leningrad Philharmonic, while B-196 attributes it to Boris Khaikin/Leningrad Philharmonic. Frank Forman's copy of the disc reads Khaikin.

Glinka: Ruslan and Ludmila: March of the Black Sea Sailors

Though B-210 lists this work on Melodiya SM 02863/4, SM 02863/4 does not include this work, but includes the Overture.

Glinka: Valse-Fantasie for Orchestra in b minor

Multisonic CD 310269-2 attributes this recording to Mravinsky/USSR State Symphony Orchestra recorded in 1986 as the recording of the Moscow Radio. The conductor is probably Yevgeni Svetlanov.

Schubert: Symphony No. 9, "The Great"

Unknown date and venue, Studio; RE: na
LP: Zafiro ZL 406 (1983)
Spanish LP Zafiro ZL 406 (1983) claims that Mravinsky conducted the Leningrad Philharmonic on the recording and that the disc was manufactured under license from Melodiya. However, Mravinsky once told to Aleksandr Nevzorov that, while he was fond of and much interested in this work, he never conducted it. Kenzo Amoh compared this recording and Melodiya S10 16099/100 (1981) recorded in 1980 with the Leningrad Symphony Orchestra conducted by Aleksandr Dmitriev, and found that both are identical, since the timings of the individual movements are exactly same.

Shostakovich: Violin Concerto No. 1

Unknown date and venue, Live, Monaural; RE: na
Violin: Leonid Kogan
LP: Hall of Fame HOF 512
LP: Hall of Fame HOFS 512, Electronic simulated stereo
James Creighton incorrectly attributes this recording to Kogan and Kirill Kondrashin/ Moscow Philharmonic. Kogan made two recordings of this concerto with Kirill Kondrashin/ Moscow Philharmonic. One is the 1962 Moscow studio recording (Melodiya LP D 8451/2, Shinsekai LP SMK 7562), and the other is the 1966 Moscow live recording (Revelation RV 10084). Kogan's other recordings of this work are with Yevgeni Svetlanov/USSR State Symphony Orchestra (1976 live, Melodiya LP S10 30917/8) and with Irwin Hoffman/ Chicago Symphony Orchestra (1966 live, Radiothon CD CSO CD95-2). Paul Miller compared HOF 512, Shinsekai SMK 7562, and Melodiya S10 30917/8 by using variable speed tape recorders to make A-B comparions, and found that all are distinct. Furthermore, Kenzo Amoh confirmed that HOF 512, Revelation RV 10084, Radiothon CSO CD95-2 and Mravinsky's recordings with David Oistrakh (1956 Leningrad and 1957 Prague) are distinct. Neither Aleksandra Vavilina (Mrs. Mravinsky, former principal flutist of the Leningrad Philharmonic) nor Yelizaveta Gilels (Mrs. Kogan, violinist) know about this recording. The performers on Hall of Fame HOF 512 have so far eluded every effort of the compilers to identify. This disc is shown in James Creighton's Discopaedia of the Violin, First edition published in 1971.

Unknown date and venue, Live, Monaural; RE: na
Violin: Ruggiero Ricci
Symphony Orchestra of USSR
CD: One Eleven EPR 95030 (1996)
Aleksandra Vavilina (Mrs. Mravinsky, former principal flutist of the Leningrad Philharmonic) does not know about this recording. Ruggiero Ricci performed with the Leningrad Philharmonic in 1962 and 1963 according to Fomin's "Leningrad State Philharmonic", but conductors and works are not shown.

Tchaikovsky: Symphonies Nos. 4, 5 and 6

Unknown date and venue, Live; RE: na
CD: Halloo HAL 09/10 (1997), 2 disc set
Kenzo Amoh confirmed that symphonies nos. 4 and 6 are identical with the DG 1960 studio recordings, although noises (coughs) are placed in the beginning of some movements, and an audiences applause after the finale. Furthermore, Kenzo Amoh confirmed that symphony no. 5 is identical with the 1978 Vienna live recording.
