This collection serves as an introduction to the great variety of approaches being used by Slavicists and historians to situate music and literature in the Russian cultural imagination.

Part I focuses on music in art. The nine essays in this section explore the complex interaction of literary and musical texts in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Contributors discuss such writers as Pushkin, Chekhov, and Pasternak, and composers including Musorgsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, and Blok. Part II centers on music in life. Its five essays address music as a cultural form, as presented and enjoyed in the home, the theater, and the opera house. This book provides a unique window on The musical, literary, and social interactions that have been typical of modern Russian culture.
