Calvocoressi's Study of a
Russian Musical Nationalist
Musorgsky's Rebellion Against Tradition and
Search for Truth in Art Revealed in
Passages From Letters
By Katharine Wright
Dr A. Eaglefleld Hull has translate?:
y D. Csl^ocoressi's biographical anc
.r';?ical study cf the Russian m?sica
-?tior.ali8t Musorgsky, whose opert
-Boris Goduncff" will be revived by th?
.l!stTflp?l:tan Opera Company next Sat
r.rday evening. The volume, publishec
. E. P- D^tton & Co., contains a por
trait of the composer and many m?sica'
attritions from his works dispersed
throush the text.
Calvocoressi relates that the idea o?
?eking a subject for a musical drama
? Pushkin's "Boris Godusoff" was sug?
gested to Musorgsky by a friend, Pro?
cessor Nicolsky, who had met him at
the house of Glinka's sister, Mme.
Shestakoff. The composer was so de
l.ghted with the suggestion that he
dropped the continuation of "The Mar
?a? Broker" and set to work upon his
HW task. This was in September, 1868.
By the middle of November he had fin?
ished the first net. and ono year later
?be opera was completed. After fin?
ding each part of the work Musorgsky
ferited his friends to private hearings
the music. He himself played the
piano ana sang nearly ali the vocal
parts, with the assistance of Viss Alex
ladra purgold for the small feminine
roles. Much enthusiasm resulted from
tkijw auditions. Dargoraisky. a brother
.oniposer. after listening to the scene
n the inn, exclaimed that Musorgsky
had ?one far beyond him.
Still, in spite of wholesale admiration
?om hia friends, Petrograd theatrical
"?anagers at first refused the work, on
the ground that it contained too many
ensembles and too many choruses, and
because the scant nature of the princi?
pal r?les gave them insufficient impor?
tance. The composer at last consented
:o a long series of revisions, which re?
sulted in the opera's present form.
The first performance of the opera in
Petrograd, January 12, 1874, marked
the greatest triumph in the composer's
life. Twenty consecutive performances
7 ven before crowded house3. The
.. ?jer generation was particularly
repressed, and late at night young
en were heard singing the choruses
Btreets an : on the Neva bridge.
\ccording to Caivocoressi "Musorg
4 the uncouth, the unfinished, the
From the portrait by Repin,
painted just before the com?
musical nihilist (the word has been!
used of him in Russia and elsewhere),]
is in this score equal to the greatest, '
to those whose glory is beyond com- ]
paruon and above all ingratitude. If;
there could be anything to be compared
with Shakespeare's 'Macbeth,' it would
be 'Boris Godunoff.'"
The setting in which Musorgsky's '
early life was speni profoundly influ-!
"need the character of his compo- i
sitions. Born in the country, at the I
? amily homestead in the village of?
Karevo, the first ten years of his life
were spent close to the peasantry. Thus
he became saturated with the spirit
of the soil. He delighted in the stories
Pf Russian folklore told him by his
nurse. At first, however, there were
few indications that this singer of the
people would ever become anything but
a distinguished amateur. His biog
!apner, Stassoff, quotes Borodin's im?
pression of Musorgsky at seventeen:
A Fop at Seventeen
"My first meeting with Musorgsky
took place in 1856, in the month o? Sep
tember or October. I had been elected
military doctor. . . . Musorgsky
*M an officer in th? newly formed
I'reobraiensky Regirrient. We met acci?
dentally in the orderly room of the hos
P'tal, both being on duty. We began
*? talk and our sympathies coal-seed
oace. The same evening we were
invited to the house of the chief doc?
tor of the hospital, Popoff. Musorgsky
was then a veritable ':e-r>,' very ele?
gant, a fine type of young officer; his
well-fitting uniform all spick and span;
fc's feet small and shapely; his hair
carefully brushed and pomaded; his
hands well cared fov, use the hands
?i an aristocrat. His maaaers were
??eedingly refined; he spoke mincing
'* and he was lavish with French
Phrases. He had a slight touch of
conceit, but not too much; his educa?
ron and good breeding remained con
?Pieocat; th? ladiM wer? charmed
j with him. n? would sit at the piano, j
I | and with elegant gestures piay por
I ; tions of 'Trovatore' or 'Traviata';
[ J ?around him the company exclaimed in
l\ chorus: '('harming!' 'Delicious!'"
, i In marked contrast to Boiodin's de
. scription of the polfshed officer of 18?6
is the portrait by the painter Repin,
? made i:i 1881, which shows Musorgsky
as he appeared a few days before his
death, ravaged and wasted by alcohol.
i disheveled and in his dressing gown.
Letters to Stassoff
j t The composer's zeal in his search for
artistic truth is roflect??d in passages
?from letters written to Stassoff:
"Tell me why, when I listen to
young artists, painters or sculptors
I talking, I can follow their thoughts,
t understand their opinions, their aims,
1 and I rarely hear these people talking
: technically save when it is absolutely
: necessary. When, on the other hand, I
j am with musicians I seldom hear them
? <-::press a single living thought. One
woul?3|| think they were all on school
I henches. They only understand 'tecb
\ nique' and technical terms. Is musi
; cal art so yourg, then, that it is neces
i sary to study it in this childish man?
ner?" (July 13, 1872.)
"The artistic representation of
: Beauty alone in its material aspect is
'. sheer childishness, an eleme-itary form
j of art; the characteristic features of
' individuals and of masses, the per
, ?sistent ?exploration of this domain still
1 little known?there lies the duty of the
; artist. To new lands. Fearless ir.
: spite of tempests, rocks ana shallows
! To new shores. Crowds, like individ
j uals, always offer distinctive features
\ hard to penetrate, not yet understood
Watch them carefully, learn to under
; ctand them under all the varying con
| ditions by observation and deduction
I Study them deeply, cherish their hu
1 manity, for it is a source of strength
! not yet recognized. There lies you;
: duty: there is to be found the suprem?
\ .',-?,. ~<" Ufa ? ?n?ln'no? IQ 1B*"*? ?1
"Instead of making their fugues and
the conventional three obligatory act?
in opera, why do not people open some
good books and talk about them with
clever men? For is it not the best
road to art for the modern man, and
the only justification of his d'?*y a
an artist? Life, especia.!y where it is
, made manifest; Truth, however bitter
| it may be; Fearlessness, free speech.
j To be in touch with life at close quar
j ters: that is my leaven; that is what I
I crave for and what I hope will nevei
1 tail. 1'his is now my position, and here
? i shall remain." ?August 7, 1875.)
"When I recall certain artists re
strained and prevented by such bar
? riers I have no superior feelings, onl;
; a disheartening companionship. All thi
j aspirations of these people accumul?t?
| and are discharged one by one in tiny
! equal drops. The things which deligh
them only bring grief and annoyanc
to a true man. Examine yourself
Have you claws, or only s moot!
stumps? Are you a deer or a web
! footed creature? Where are you? Out
de the barrier? . . . Lack
' intelligence and will, these people be
j come" entangle'd in the meshes of tradi
j tion; they confirm the law of inert?
? whilst they believe they are acting fo
I the general good. All this would b
quite devoid of interest, asid to a cet
tain extent antipathetic, if these artist
; had not begun by seizing the staff of
new banner which they try to flaun
proudly at th? face of humanity. The
aim at the goal toward which thei
greatest men have pressed, but thei
coats of mail are soon pierced; the
easily become tired and cry for res
Where do they rest? On the bosom c
tradition. 'As our forefathers hav
done so will we do.' They have hiddei
well hidden, the glorious standard in
secret corner, fastened up with seve
locks and seven doors. They rest, an
rest, and rest. Without any aim, an
without any desire, seeing nothing an
never wishing to see anything, the
take the trouble to do over and ove
again what has already been done.whi
nobody wants." | October, 1875.)

school, his instrumental composition

The programs selected for perform

the last season Mr. Damrosch and his
symphony men produced for the first ;
