I'm mostly starting this thread to try to hunt down a particular piece; it was something that I stumbled across on Youtube, but which has since disappeared.  Unfortunately, I can't remember the piece or the composer.  It was in a live performance by Anton Dikov, a virtuosic encore similar in style to Lyapunov or Tanayev.  It was about 5 minutes long . . . maybe in E flat minor?  Lots of double-notes in the RH, sort of like Scriabin's Op. 65 No. 3.


That's all I remember!  I feel like the name was peak 'Russian-sounding' like Abromovsky or Romanitsky.  But aside from that, any other cool short pieces from the Futurist composers?  Here are a couple that I really like.

this is a great topic, off top of my head i cannot think of a piece exactly fitting your idea of what it might have been , i can consult a freind of mine, an authority of sorts on the russina piano literature that in the tip of their pinky they have more knowledge in this area than i'll ever have on my best of days.
here's a cool one

more to come, i love this area of the Soviet and surrounding parts literature.

J Powell put out a Konstantin Eiges piano words CD, it is superb, and worth listening to/seeking out. I love K Eigies (his father also composed, but Not as big a fan, though you can search for Oleg Eiges 5plastic etudes for comparison)
