Rimsky-Korsakov: the forgotten centenary

http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/tomserviceblog/2008/oct/20/rimsky-korsakov-anniversary-russia

Tom Service [The Guardian, 20 October 2008]
It's the forgotten classical music anniversary this year: not Vaughan Williams (50 years since his death in 1958) or Olivier Messiaen (100 years since his birth) - both of whom have been firm fixtures of festivals, orchestras, and even opera houses this year - but Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, who died in 1908.
