One of the things I find fascinating about 19th century Russian music is that in many ways, it was a collaborative effort. A small community of composers believed in the importance of music and creating a nationalistic sound and worked toward that effort. Some of the composers included Rimsky-Korsakov, Liadov, Borodin, Balkariev, and Mussorgsky. Of course they often discounted and criticized the work of Russia's best known and perhaps most gifted composer, Tchaikovsky, but still they did give us a great variety of music. It also seems that making sure the music was performed was a top priority, and incomplete or unfinished scores were not an obstacle but a challenge. Works that were not completed were completed by others, and if this were not the case the world of opera would be missing not only Borodin's PRINCE IGOR but Mussorgsky's BORIS GODOUNOV and KHOVANSHINA.

To say KHOVANSCHINA was a draft is an understatement. Composing was not always Mussorgsky's top priority. Combine this with an unhappy life and a severe drinking problem and you have a fragmented at best work. Nicolai Rimsky Korsakov was the first to attempt a version of the work that could be staged. Its greatness was immediately recognized. Later Igor Stravinsky tried to recreate some scenes and finally Dmitri Shostakovich reworked passages and is largely responsible for the work as we know it today. It is an epic opera based on events during the time of Peter the Great. The story involves royal intrigue, rebellion, and a love story: all common fare in Russian opera. There are grand choral scenes as well as haunting arias and duets.

I first heard KHOVANSCHINA in a Metropolitan Opera Broadcast and found it interesting, but also saw ways in which it could drag if the conductor or soloists were not in top form.

Format: Audio CD
Khovanshchina - "The Khovansky Affair" is Mussorgsky's second full opera, though like several of his other operatic projects, it was never entirely completed. Nonetheless, it exists in a version that is far more complete than any of his other projected and semi-complete operas. Khovanshchina was never orchestrated by Mussorgsky and its closing scene was left incomplete at his death, its complete score existing only in a version for piano.

This version of Khovanshchina is a live performance under the baton of Claudio Abbado, arguably one of the greatest of Mussorgsky's contemporary interpreters (his Boris Godunov is also very good). Occasionally the sound quality does not quite measure up to a studio recording, but overall it is very good. The singing is almost uniformly strong, but three voices stand out above the rest: as Old Believer Dosifey, Paata Burchuldaze, a Georgian bass whose deep voice projects an unmatched power that one has to hear to believe, as Shaklovity, Ukrainian bass-baritone Anatoly Kutcherga, who also performs the lead role in Abbado's Boris Godunov, and Slovenian soprano Marjana Lipovsek who plays Marfa.

Khovanshchina is not as unified a work as Boris Godunov and suffers from a sprawling plot and libretto. But the music is for the most part every bit as gripping as that of Boris Godunov and features some of Mussorgsky's most memorable moments, a few of which are known in concert performance versions, including the opening prelude and Golitsyn's journey.

For those unfamiliar with this work or Mussorgsky in general, in my opinion he is one of the most sincere composers to have ever lived. He did not receive formal musical training and he was an alcoholic but the man had a passion that makes you want to stand next to him on a funeral pyre.
Khovanshchina is based on the so-called `Khovansky Affair'. The plot: there are plans afoot, effected by the frightening Shaklovity (Anatolij Kotscherga) to slander the Khovanskys and their riotous Streltsy (brigands) as well as the fanatical Old Believers who are led by the priest Dosifei (Paata Burchuladze). Shaklovity dictates a letter to this effect, sending it anonymously (using a hilarious and dramatic scribe) to Tsar Peter and the Imperial Council.
As a sub-plot, Andrei Khovansky (Vladimir Atlantov) is enamoured with a captured Lutheran girl, Emma (Joanna Barowska), upon whom he tries to force his affections. He is interrupted and the girl saved by his former intended, Marfa (Marjana Lipovsek), a clairvoyant and Old Believer. His father, Ivan Khovansky (Aage Haugland) enters and tries to sieze Emma for himself. The ensuing argument is broken up by the arrival of Dosifei, who orders the girl's safe conduct.
Nxt scene: Reading a letter from his lover, the Tsaryevna Sofia (whom it was forbidden to Mussorgsky to fully characterise in the opera), Prince Vasily Golitsyn (Vladimir Popov) discards her affections with bitter irony. He summons Marfa to foretell his future, which she does (dramatically) to Mussorgsky's dark, haunting and evocative strains (summoning spirits). She foretells of his fall from power and his exile. He orders her out and sends a servant to dispatch her in the swamp (which she later narrowly escapes).
