Weidensaul-Bach and Khatchaturian

    I am looking for some specific information on the Weidensaul transcription of the CPE Bach harp Sonata, and the Oriental Dance and Toccata by Aram Khatchaturian.

    First, I know the year in which Weidensaul’s transcription was published because of the copyright date. But I need to know the actual year when the transcribing was done, before publication.

    Second, I am having difficulty locating details about Khatchaturian’s Oriental Dance and Toccata. In what year was it composed? How much did Vera Dulova have to do with the process? Etc. Many listings of Khatchaturian’s works don’t even mention it, much less give it any sort of date or opus number.

    I would be very grateful for any suggestions as to how I might find this or other related information.

    If you can get hold of Natalya Shameyaeva’s book, “the development of harp music in Russia in the 20th Century”, there is some quite useful info about the Khatchaturian and Dulova’s involvment.

    I believe Jane was working on it in 1980 or so. The actual date is not that significant, I don’t think.

    I know the date of transcription is probably not extremely important but, at the same time, it is something I want to know. Thanks for your input.

    Kathleen Bride would probably know the exact dates.
