Overview

This anthology of Russian music criticism reveals the reactions of leading critics to new Russian music in the period 1880-1917. Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and Borodin were in their prime, and several new generations emerged: Rachmaninoff and Skryabin, Stravinsky and Prokoviev. Works reviewed range from In the Steppes of Central Asia and the Pathétique Symphony to The Golden Cockerel and The Rite of Spring.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'… immensely welcome. Dealing with a wide range of issues, the thoughtfully selected articles reveal the views of contemporary Russian critics and chroniclers on concert life, publications, censorship, patronage, musical societies and groups, as well as providing a fascinating glimpse on the Russian perception of western composers and western music as a whole. Furthermore, most of the articles provide a detailed analysis of important musical works … Campbell's translation is masterful … This is a book recommended to all who are interested in the extremely lively cultural world of fin-de-siècle Russia, and a wonderful resource to teachers and students alike.'
