Musorgsky and his Circle: A Russian Musical Adventure (Book)
By  Stephen Walsh

The emergence of Russian classical music in the nineteenth century is a fascinating story in musical history. Five men who came together in St. Petersburg in the 1860s are responsible for some of the greatest music ever written. This group, known in the West as the Five and in Russia as moguchaya kuchka (Mighty Little Heap) is the subject of Stephen Walsh’s brilliant portrait of this group - Mily Balakirev, César Cui, Alexander Borodin, Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov, and—most important of all—Modest Musorgsky.
