I recently came into a small collection of pre-Melodiya 10" and 12"
classical discs from about the 1950s. Some of the ones that stood out to
- Mark Bernes "Beloved Town" / "Clouds Rose Over the City"
- Tchaikovsky: Concerto for Piano & Orch. 23 - Mravinsky / Leningrad
Sym. w/ P. Serebryakov
- Tchaikovsky: Symphony 6 "Pathetique" - Mravinsky / Leningrad Sym.
- Tchaikovsky: Capriccio Italien - Mravinsky / Leningrad Sym. b/w
Tchaikovsky: Romeo & Juliet Overture - K. Ivanov / USSR Sym. Orch.
- F.I. Chaliapin performing Moussorgsky, A. Rubinstein, Mozart, Gounod
- Puccini: La Boheme (3 discs only) - Maslennikov, Sakharov, Lemeshev,
Dobrin, Radio Orch. directed by Samosud.
- Verdi: Rigoletto (2 discs only) - Bolshoi Theatre Orch. directed by
- Shostakovich: Sym. 10 - Mravinsky / Leningrad Sym.
- Liszt: Piano Concerto 1 - K. Kondrashin / USSR State Sym. Orch w/ Emil
b/w Liszt: Prelude - N.G. Rachlin & All-Union Sym. Orch.
And several Russian folk songs, stories and limericks.
Would these be worth anything to anyone, considering these are mostly in
great shape? I'm wondering if I should sell this off as a lot or
individually. I need to raise some cash here, but I wouldn't even know
where to begin finding valuations. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
