"At last there is a short and comprehensive introduction to Russian music and its history that is up to date in research, sophisticated in viewpoint, elegantly written, and completely free of nonsense. It fills a longstanding gap and fills it most satisfyingly. Francis Maes deserves hearty congratulations and thanks."—Richard Taruskin, author of Stravinsky and the Russian Traditions: A Biography of the Works Through "Mavra"

Booklist

Glossing over lesser-known composers and stopping short of the post-Soviet period, the book is worthwhile for seeing how Russia's politics affected her music.
