Vakh'hicheskaya pesnia. Composed by Nikolay Andreyevich Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908). Choral octavo. With Language: Russian. Published by Musica Russica (MR.PS-023mc).

Item Number: MR.PS-023mc

A drinking song in the form of a fugue? You bet! This surprising piece, based on a "libertine" poem by the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin, is a rollicking contrapuntal romp, praising not only Bacchus and lovely women, but also the preeminence of "reason" and "enlightenment.".
