Sunday 20 September 2009, by FQ, Laurent (Vnouk) // Publications

Vsevolod Vsevolodovitch Zaderatsky has written a book about his father’s works and life. This book is well documented and inserts a lot of musicological analysis of Vsevolod Petrovitch’s works illustrated by excerpts from scores. "Per aspera …" was named Book of the Year by the russian newspaper "The Book Review" and the russian magazine "What to Read".

This book includes a large set of photographies and a complete catalog of composer’s works and published scores. I updated the correspondancy articles from these sources : works and published scores.
