Russian Music since 1917

Richard Taruskin

British Academy

Departing from an article by Arthur Lourié published in 1931 which posits a fundamental split between the music produced by Russian composers in the Soviet Union and that produced by Russian composers living abroad as émigrés—and asserts that the latter, not the former, are the ones producing the true Russian music of the day—this paper considers (in the light of Marc Raeff’s Russia Abroad and its treatment of émigré culture) what it takes to maintain a cultural community in diaspora, and whether expatriated Russian musicians have ever constituted such a community.

Keywords:   Arthur Lourié, Russian musical diaspora, Russian émigré musicians
