This year’s Bard Music Festival explores the disconnect between the impressive weight of Rimsky-Korsakov’s oeuvre and the comparative lack of representation it receives in the U.S.

“Rimsky-Korsakov merged an appreciation for the western tradition with an impulse to create an autonomous, independent Russian musical voice, which led him to become one of the great composers and teachers in all of music history.” –Leon Botstein
