TSH 1643
SPAIN À LA RUSSE


19th-century Russian composer Mikhail Glinka, once wrote “A nation creates music - the composer only arranges it.” On today’s program, we travel some 2200 miles east from Madrid to Moscow, to hear how Russian composers, including Glinka, were inspired by the music of Spain.
