Promotional Information

This substantial anthology of Russian writing on Russian music features the most influential critics of music in nineteenth-century Russia.


'... its value remains unquestionable ... a large drop in a very important ocean'. Musical Times 'The volume is a pleasure on several levels. Not only does it make engrossing reading for slavicists, but it also fills in a major gap for those whose major background is in music rather than in Russian.' Peter G. Christensen, Slavic and East European Journal '... this book makes a welcome continuation of Dr Campbell's earlier review of Russian musical criticism ... attractively produced and well selected for the variety and significance of the critical pieces. Many of them convey a strong impression of the vitality and, particularly, direction of Russian music at this exciting period in its development.' Arnold McMillin, SEER
