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

By Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky; Jay Leyda et al. | Go to book overview

matters surrounding you, you've remembered about Musinka the truant! My very own, little dove, only with the heart can one fathom the invincible and indestructible power of your love for people, though many (and I among them) are not entirely worthy of it.

The mailman has just brought your two letters, little dove. I am giving you what you required, my own.

I am working a lot. The people's scene (among the streltzi) in Khovanshchina (Scene 3) has cooked up very successfully. I'll bring in on the train everything I've written when I come on September 16 [her name-day].

Your soul's and heart's

MUSINKA

Little dove, forget, if you can, but I implore you: forget all these human inhumanities and, for the Lord's sake, take care of yourself, I implore you.


184a. VLADIAMIR STASOV to ARSENI GOLENISHCHEV-KUTUZOV [Extract]

October 2, 1876

. . . Musoryanin has composed a lot of wonderful stuff this summer and, besides, has lost all his fat and his red nose--and walks whole versts . . .


185. To ARSENI GOLENISHCHEV-KUTUZOV24

[Autumn? 1876]

My dear friend Arseni, I'll absolutely be there. How could I not be!

All yours,

MODESTE

When Boris Godunov appeared on the Marinsky stage this season25 (October 20--the thirteenth performance of Boris), brutal cuts made it almost unrecognizable. Stasov lost no time in submitting an angry letter of protest to the press.
