Notes and Editorial Reviews

In 1868, inspired by Dargomyzhsky’s work on the opera The Stone Guest (based on Pushkin’s tragedy of the same name), Mussorgsky decided to compose his own opera called The Marriage. His task was the same as Dargomyzhsky’s: to write an opera based on the text of a literary work without editing it. Although the opera remained unfinished (it was later completed and orchestrated by Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov), the single act of The Marriage was an important milestone in both Mussorgsky’s career, and in the history of music in general.

The cycle The Nursery became one of the masterpieces of Mussorgsky’s vocal and instrumental creative work. Composed to the composer’s own lyrics, the cycle is an extraordinary work which consists of
Read more seven numbers that are neither romances nor songs. In their essence, they are miniature scenes from childhood, where Mussorgsky creates the wonderful inner world of a child with amazing accuracy, depth, and love.
