Overview

Thomas P. Hodge has produced the first literary-historical study of the art-song enterprise in Russia's Golden Age. A Double Garland investigates the interrelationship of poetry and music in Russia, specifically the relations between poets and composers, from 1800 to 1850. Hodge focuses on three major composers of art songs: Alyab'ev, Verstovskii, and Glinka. He surveys their choices of text and, after some preliminary metrical and structural analysis, proceeds to a detailed consideration of the dynamics of poet/composer interaction from various points of view. Hodge presents both the major and minor poets of this period in the context of Russian musical life. Based on extensive archival research, this study will appeal to specialists in Russian poetry and musicologists.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A study of the intertwining strands that bound Russian poets and composers of the 19th century. Hodge (Russian, Wellesley College) cites examples of literary figures making attempts at musical composition and songwriters trying out verse, for recreation, ideology, experimentation, and other reasons, influenced by crucial aesthetic precepts that arose early in the Romantic period. Hodge shows how frequently and profoundly the two art forms intermingled in the Russian literary universe and how they came into concrete contact in the hybrid medium of vocal music. Annotation c.
