Re: [ARSCLIST] Assistance Please with Russian Waltz
Uncle Dave told you that this waltz dates from 1903-1905 and became popular
in Russia during the war with Japan. You have nominated someone with a
similar name who couldm't have composed it until the '40s. That's not very
I would put my money on Steve Smolian and suggest that Dave Lewis should
find a copy of Danube waves and listen to it.

Lajos Kiss was Hungarian, it seems. I would think it more likely this
Kuss, Margarita Ivanova, 1921-
The first initial is the same, and she is on OCLC
with a couple of scores and a recording of songs. But no waltzes.

I am having an awful time trying to nail down the author of a Russian
title transliterated as "Amurskiye volnï" but translated variously as
of the Amur River Waltz" or "Amur's Waves - Waltz" and almost anything in
It is often identified as "Russian Traditional," but the composer's first
initial is "M." and the last name variously given as "Kuss," "Cuess,"
"Guess," - in cyrillic it is "Kiocc."
What I'd like to find is a standardized spelling of the composer's name,
full surname and birth/death dates if possible. I understand that this is a
very popular waltz in Russia, and it emerged during the Russo-Japanese War;
one site provided the lyrics and dated the work to "1903-05," but alas,
provided no composer name.
