Lush Russian Romanticism pervades these irresistable movements for orchestra that were created originally as incidental music to Lermontov’s drama of the same title.
This piece premiered with a reduced orchestra 6 August 1944 and later with a double orchestra 8 November 1944. Both performances by the Symphony Orchestra of All-Union Radio Committee were conducted by S. Gorchakov.
