I really am not sure why the Russian and Ukrainian composers are such favorites of mine. It is possible that the original Disney movie Fantasia had a lot to do with my love of them…or it could be that my Mother played more pieces by them than any other composers in my early childhood.
Whatever the reason, they all pop into my head when thinking about the music I adore.
Most people will only be familiar with his opera Romeo and Juliet…but I love a piece that seems to have been lost in the shuffle….Egyptian Nights suite.
