Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A Brief Biographical Note by Alexander Dargomyzhsky has been prepared for publication by Natalia Ogarkova. Based on a comparative analysis of nine previous editions (prepared by Alexander Serov, Vladimir Stasov, Alexei Korzukhin, César Cui, and Nikolai Findeyzen between 1866 and 1921) as well as on studies by Mikhail Pekelis, this publication offers a new version of one of the most compelling documents, providing an insight into the composer’s life, creative work and personality. In the introduction, Ogarkova discusses the importance of César Cuiʼs 1909 edition of A Brief Biographical Note , which became the basis for the present publication. For the first time, the text of the Note is accompanied by explanatory notes based on the comparative analysis of editions by Serov, Stasov, Korzukhin, Findeyzen, and Cui, as well as by exhaustive information and reference material.
