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.

His fairy tales are among the first things that Russians remember from their childhood. In a well-known test, when people are asked to quickly name any flower, fruit, and Russian poet, 98% respond: “red, apple, Pushkin.” Even a person who has no interest in literature will remember that Pushkin is the “sun of Russian poetry” and “our all.” It’s no coincidence that there was even a decision to celebrate the International Day of the Russian Language at the UN on Pushkin’s birthday from 2010...

Leningrad, 1925 Among the many geniuses of the Russian Silver Age, the name Maximilian Voloshin can sometimes be overlooked. His verses are not quoted all that frequently, and his aquarelles, though recognized, are not widely reproduced for sale. Likely enough, an average Russian might only remember Voloshin’s association with the Crimean town of Koktebel and a certain photograph of a heavy, disheveled Max in a chiton with his head bandaged. Or even more likely, they would only remember his name: “Sure, there was...

Russians who Brought Glory to France Anastasia Aliamovskaia After the Revolution, the Russian emigration spread as a large wave across the whole world. According to approximate numbers, up to 2 million people fled from Bolshevism and more than 400 thousand found a home in France. In foreign lands, these exiles had to face the difficulties of life and take up work—some in factories and restaurants, others becoming taxi drivers.
