 A HEAP OF TROUBLE... November 2, 2014 By Zita Carno (Tampa, FL) See All My Reviews "I have been hearing a lot of Rimsky-Korsakov's orchestral works on the Classical Masterpieces channel, and I just happened to pick on one such performance, because of an amusing---or not-so-amusing---story regarding "Le Coq d'or", usually translated as "The Golden Cockerel" but which I call "The Golden Rooster"---which is, after all what the bird is. A rooster. Now, most of this composer's operas are fairy tales---but not this one.This particular bird got Rimsky into a heap of trouble with his government, because it was not a fairy tale at all; it was a blistering satire on the Russian government and all its folks and their goings-on---and they caught on, and then some, and they lit into the composer like nobody's business! So of course he had to lay off until well after the Tsar's (welcome) demise. And so the bird---the golden rooster---had the last laugh after all. I have always had a good laugh over the whole business, and I frankly much prefer "Capriccio Espanol" and the "Russian Easter Overture" which have no political connotations but are simply good music to enjoy. And I much prefer Carl Nielsen's "Maskarade" and its "Rooster Dance"---can you imagine a whole chorus line of roosters?" Report Abuse
