Rimsky Korsakov and His Work

Fisher Center for the Performing Arts

August 10, 2018 – August 19, 2018


Bard's SummerScape has a Russian theme this year, and features an exploration of the life and times of the composer who played a central role in the definition of what we know as the Russian style in music: Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844–1908).

The most assiduous and prolific of the Russian nationalist composers known as The Mighty Five--Mily Balakirev, Modest Mussorgsky, Alexander Borodin, César Cui were the other four--Rimsky-Korsakov developed and refined many of the ideas born in the hothouse of their collective creativity, forging a highly recognizable Russian style and passing it on to his many students. The Bard Music Festival looks at the shape of his career, from naval officer to composer of great originality.
