Notes and Editorial Reviews

His three one-act operas with libretti based on writings by Pushkin and Dante are linked by their theme: fat follows in the footsteps on sin, whether it be a matter of jealous murder, greed or illicit passion Aleko, The Miserly Knight and Francesca da Rimini are the only three operas composed by Sergei Rachmaninov.
