Editorial Reviews

''... 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.'' Brio
