Natalia Naumova It was an unusual summer evening last Saturday at the Russian Community Centre in Brisbane. Two hundred people became not just spectators and guests but participants in a long-awaited concert by the male chorus DustyEsky. The chorus is made up primarily of native Australians but they perform Russian songs. The male chorus DustyEsky—who are famous all across Australia, and have recently become quite well-known in Russia as well—doesn’t fit the classical image of an academic chorus: they don’t wear formal costumes or ties, they don’t stand in even formations or have strained expressions. Very much the...

Marina Bogdanova 17 July 1998 was a warm day, abnormally bright for Petersburg. The houses along Moscovsky Avenue let down silk tricolor flags—lowered and joined with ribbons of mouring. The traffic lights blinked yellow. The avenue, usually lively and filled with cars, was empty; policemen in white gloves stood on ceremonial, one positioned every 50 meters. “What happened?” asked Petersburgers in surprise. “We await the Emperor,” answered the sentries. “Nikolai Romanov.” That day, the remains of the emperor’s family were being laid to rest at the Peter and Paul Cathedral (except for...

Sergei Vinogradov Photo: A. Korkka Last weekend, Totma—a small town even by the Vologda Region’s standards—marked its 880-year anniversary and celebrated a traditional Russian America Day. The city once prided itself on its salt making and the seafaring merchants who traded in Siberia and America. It was a native of Totma, Ivan Kuskov, who founded Fort Ross in California, and today the town is visited by official delegations from the USA and representatives of indigenous American groups. On the Way to Totma The two hundred kilometers separating Totma and Vologda feels like five hundred when...

Svetlana Alekseeva Photo: novorosinform.org The latest round in the Polish war on monuments has provoked sharp condemnation, not only in Russia, but in other countries as well. The ruling Polish authorities are conducting a war not so much on the Soviet legacy, as on their own history, depriving citizens of the ability to pay respects to the memory of their ancestors who saved the country from fascist aggression. Such a war against memory threatens to become a serious loss for Poland itself. In mid-July, Polish president Andrzej Duda signed amendments to a law banning communist propaganda, which made...

Sergei Vinogradov “Many people think that classical music is only accessible to the elites, but this is not at all the case” — such is the conviction of the renowned Muscovite cellist Boris Andrianov. For three years now, he has reaffirmed this conviction by bringing together an international team of musicians and going on a tour through the Russian countryside. This year the Musical Expedition went to the Vologda region, where musicians gave free concerts in the monastery, at the steelworks, at an old estate, and in other places. Nearer to People The very word “expedition”...

Svetlana Smetanina Today in the world fashion capitals (New York, Milan, Paris) showrooms are open that specialize primarily in working with Russian brands. And Russian fashion brands are starting to make up an increasing share in the collections of practically all major clothing stores. Just ten years ago or so, it would have been difficult to imagine that clothes by Russian designers would be able to contend with Western brands—and not only on the domestic market but all over the world. For a long time fashion was more of a show in Russia than a business. This may have been connected to the fact that fashion in Russia never...
