Bard Music Festival explores ‘Rimsky-Korsakov and His World’

Portrait of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov by Valentin Serov

The 29th annual Bard Music Festival opens Friday, Aug. 10, continuing over two weekends with a series of programs exploring “Rimsky-Korsakov and His World.”

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908) played a pivotal part in defining the style we now recognize as Russian. Despite this, he remains so woefully underappreciated outside his homeland that Russian music specialist Richard Taruskin considers him “perhaps the most underrated composer of all time.”
