    Alban...you'll be alone here...Nobody or almost like this....We can share this together...LOL

    Let's make a list...alphabetical list...First letter A...like Arensky...This guy composed two or three or more beautiful operas...but many were lost...I just have Raphael...a nice little opera (1 CD).
    I think we will be here alone just you and me.

    Best regards.

    Lovely videos, Martin...Well...we spoke about Arensky...Now..."B" no Russian operas with B...balakirev never composed an opera...Let's speak about Cui, Cesar Cui...You composed the Pushkin opera based, the feast during the plague. Nice little opera. Very short indeed. He also composed another opera, lost.

    Um, North America? Do you think that all of the people who post here are from North America do you? How amusing.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    No, I don't think so....But I think that you haven't said anything about the subject...have you? Should I include Australia? or Oceania?

    I have an American friend, he's a fan of Russian opera...then some exceptions exist.

    Should I ignore your message?

    Sincerely,

    Martin

    -Not at all
    - How are you doing?
    - Great

    I bought something a guy suggested here...St Matthew Passion, it is awesome...Fedoseyev, the young composer...Very talented, he's a bishop, my wife says he's handsome...I don't know, I notice nothing...LOL

    Best regards.

    Smile well...after C id D

    Dargomizhsky is a giant...Ver often quite unknown in North America. I have two operas by him: Russalka and Esmeralda (rare recording).
    What about you? What do you know about this composer?

    He's a quite good composer...not as good as Glinka or R-K or Tchaikovsky..but good nontheless.

    Best
