No linguistic artifice this time. Pick a piece from Russia itself, no Cold War outposts which shall be given their due. Glasnost is saved for us, that the unsullied art of harmony bring us together & carry us toward the holiday :

O marvellous image of divinity,
Unsullied art of harmony!
To thee we offer in concert
Our praise born of enthusiasm.

As prior, its composer needs to have been born (or musically come of age by experience or education) in the locale for the work to qualify for inclusion here. Otherwise the drill is the same:

- Nominate one or two, up to twice per Amazon day, at least 9 hours apart, no matter the day.
- Once seconded a nominee makes the voting list (must be different people).
- NB: Only two works can be listed per turn -- 2 noms, 2 seconds, or one of each.
- Maximum of 75 on the voting list, at which time nominations are closed.

Assume you mean what is today Russia, and none of the USSR's other republics? These were not technically speaking "satellites."

Not satellites, Ken, but subjugates!

Nominate

Borodin 2nd Symphony

and a quaint little operetta-buffa by Modest Mussorgsky called Boris Godunov

You are correct, Ken. And LOL, CCB -- I always look forward to the "DG" double-header of Don P. / Boris G.

Thank you MZ for starting this game!

Nominate:
Prokofiev's 5th
Rachmaninov's 2nd PC

Edit: looks like this game is going to be very popular. The 75 on the voting list are hardly enough :-)

I'll second Boris Godunov, and nominate Tchaikovsky's Pikovaya Dama.
