  2. Who was this man? An hommage to Glazunov, Part III

    The incidents of 1905 will go down in Russian history forever, involving strife between the Czars and the growing dissenting establishment that would later lead to Revolution. The Conservatory locked-down after the Czar dismissed Rimsky-Korsakov from his composition chair and all the rest responded with resignations of their own, including Glazunov.

  5. Hey! I made a new Group! Please Join!

    I figured it was about time I made a group for Russian composers here and put my footprint on this forum in that way. I'm going to share more in-depth things I've found in my research. I actually have a number of friends on this website called Turntable that have joined me in discovering new Russian music (we all share our own discoveries in collective sessions of music). Whatever catches my eye(ear) there, I will share here. Otherwise, the Group is for discussion and sharing. Everyone who is interested
