The Poet's Echo: Art Song in Russia, 1730-2000

The Poet’s Echo: Art Song in Russia, 1730-2000’ will be the first interdisciplinary study of Russian art song to be written in English, and the first to move beyond Russian-language works dating from the Soviet era. It will argue that song plays a fundamental role in the formation of the Russian literary canon, as well as exploring the development of emotions and sentiment in modern Russian culture. The thousands of songs listed in the catalogues of Russian libraries offer a rich and underexploited source base for this project. This material will be complemented by secondary sources such as memoirs, diaries, letters, publishers’ catalogues, and concert programmes that are invaluable in charting the reception of poetry in musical composition and performance.
