Starting out as a post-romantic, Glière reinvented himself after 1917 as a precursor of socialist realism, and The Red Poppy depicts Soviet sailors on shore leave in Kuomintang China. The Sailors’ Dance is familiar as an orchestral encore. More striking, however, is the passionate love scene, in which the Internationale surfaces in a heady adagio after the fashion of Glazunov’s Raymonda. Done as well as this, The Red Poppy proves infinitely persuasive, and you surrender to it completely.
