During the entire year after the death of Nikolay Korndorf the Canadian radio (CBC) regularly broadcast his music, frequently upon the request of the listeners. Many letters started arriving in connection with this. One of them was especially memorable. It began with the words: “Twice already during this summer I had to park my truck when I heard such astonishing music. And twice I heard the same name. Mr. Korndorf! Where can I buy your recordings?" This compact disc with Korndorf’s music which you are holding in your hands is the ﬁrst one to be released a in Russia. It was carried out by the Moscow Conservatoire, with which in one way or other about 4/5 of his life was connected - about forty years. Everything began at the age of 10, when he started attending the music school affiliated with the "Merzlyakov" College, then the “Merzlyakov” College affiliated with the Moscow, and then he graduated twice from the Moscow Conservatoire: as a composer and as a conductor. After this he taught at the Conservatoire for neariy 20 years: (about 80 of his students graduated from the Conservatoire as composers, musicologists and conductors). He was a remarkably educated and very erudite man who replenished his knowledge in completely different fields all his life.
