Studies in Russian music; critical essays on the most important of Rimsky-Korsakov's operas, Borodin's Prince Igor, Dargomizhky's Stone guest, etc., with chapters on Glinka, Mussorgsky, Balakirev and Tchaikovsky by Gerald Abraham( Book )

39 editions published between 1935 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although this is a book of separate essays, it is, I hope, given a certain unity by the fact that each chapter deals with some product or aspect of the "classical" period of Russian music: the music of Glinka and, more particularly, that written in the half-century following his death. I have almost ignored Mussorgsky and Tchaikovsky, preferring to concentrate on the less discussed members of the "mighty handful," above all on Rimsky-Korsakov who has hitherto been unaccountably neglected by non-Russian critics. But in these studies of some of Korsakov's operas I have concerned myself only with certain aspects of them -- perhaps too exclusively -- in the attempt to investigate the working of the composer's musical mind. - Preface
