The Musorgsky Reader: A Life of Modeste Petrovich Musorgsky in Letters and Documents

By Jay Leyda; Sergei Bertensson et al. | Go to book overview

ried without even being properly tempted. I frankly scolded Arseni and was extremely rude to the aforesaid Arseni. But lying is not for me. He asked me to come to his fiancée57 (whom I don't know)--but I'm not going; I would have to lie. I don't want him to do what he's doing--and I won't go, that's all. He says that he fell in love with her --all the same I won't go. It's not necessary. Such things make me want to work more than ever. And I am left alone--so, I'll be alone. You have to die alone anyway; not everyone will follow me there. It's a pity, généralissime, about Arseni.

And the third act is all mapped out. It will be easy now.

Of course and eternally,

MUSORYANIN

165. To DIMITRI STASOV

1 January, 1876

DEAREST DIMITRI VASILYEVICH,

Your friendly invitation did not find the civil servant Musorgsky at home, as he had already left for the office. From this occurred the calamity that I, Musoryanin, could not come to your dearest family to greet the New Year. But the entire 2nd act of Khovanshchina was and is at hand. I took up the 3rd act at night and I am writing it zealously. Great gratitude to your little dove of a lady for her kind feelings toward Musoryanin. Unless you send me some message, dearest Dimitri Vasilyevich, allow me to count on your permission to be at your house in the very near future with Khovanshchina. A hearty bow to your dearest lady and to the kiddies.

Your

MUSORYANIN


166. To DIMITRI STASOV

DEAREST DIMITRI VASILYEVICH,

Tomorrow, Sunday, at 9:00 P.M., I intend to come to Nadezhdinskaya St. [ Vladimir Stasov's], at my fullest speed, and with Khovanshchina
