Excerpt from The Russian Song Books: A Selection of Songs From the Works of Russian Composers, Old and New; Songs for a Bass Voice

Balakirev, Mily alexeievich, was born at nijny-nov gorod in 1836. He succeeded Glinka as the leader of the national school in Russia, and Cu1, Moussorgsky, Borodin and rimsky-korsakov were all in some degree his disclpies Besides a Symphony in C major, he wrote music to,, King Lear; a Symphonic poem an Overture on Russian Themes; an orchestral work entitled for the 1000-th Anniversary of the existence of the Rus sian nation; many brilliant and technically interesting pie ces for piano, including the famous Oriental Fantasia,, Isla mey, and a number of highly finished and charming songs. Balakirev died in 1910. The later years of his life were spent in almost monastic seclusion and the mystical vein is clearly apparent in his song,, T he Desert.

Bleichmann, Julius lvanovich. In spite of his Ger man name this composer was a native of S-t. Petersburg, where he was born in 1868. He studied music under Soloviev and rimsky-korsakov, and also at the Leipzig Conservatoire, under Reinecke and Jadassohn. He has composed a sacred Opera,, S-t. Sebastian, Martyr, and a lyrical Opera,, La Princesse Lointaine, besides many pleasing, though rather sentimental, songs which enjoy a great vogue in Russia. The Convoy is one of a class of,, Songs with a purpose which are almost peculiar to Russmn art. The picture it suggests has become infrequent with the advent of the railways. He died in 1909.
