Book Description

30 Nov 2013
The extraordinarily rapid development of the Russian school of music has been preoccupying the world of art for something like thirty-five years, and has now engaged the interest and attention of the whole of Europe. Previous to this, it was a matter of common knowledge that a great composer, of the name of Glinka, had been born in Russia, and that he had left his country two superb works: A Life for the Tsar and Rousslan and Ludmilla. The names of two or three other composers, such as Serov and Dargomijsky, were also known; but it was not realised at that time that music had taken such deep root in the country. For us Frenchmen in particular the splendid Russian concerts organised at Paris by Nicholas Rubinstein for the Exhibition of 1878 were a revelation; they made us acquainted with artists whose names we hardly knew and of whose works we were completely ignorant.
