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!

Why don't you try using a cypher?

I ran across the album a few days ago, finally got the front and back cover images as far as the GSC image gallery, couldn't figure out how to get it on/in this post.  Stand by.

Any mention of the fine pianist, or recording details?

Best regards,

Tamara Venglovskaya on piano. Maybe his wife? That would make this an extra special record, in my book!
the price of the record was 1 ruble, 45 cents, if that makes a difference.

I have Dutch in-laws who told me Holland is overflowing with State-funded art, including many otherwise-vacant warehouses chock full of paintings and sculpture.  I sort of love this idea when it applies to Music, like the "best" Socialist years in Russia, when students could attend the Ballet Russe for about 50 cents, and there were several worthwhile performances to be seen/heard at any given time.  This is, indeed, a special LP, which is why I called attention to it in the first place.   Thanks again for the translations!

Best regards,
Paul S
