The Ghetto and the Imperium

The Ghetto and the Imperium

(p.233) 9 The Ghetto and the Imperium
Russian Music at Home and Abroad

Richard Taruskin

University of California Press

A comprehensive examination of the effects of changing Soviet policies regarding “nationalities” on the composition and judging of music under Soviet rule, beginning with a comparison of European romantic nationalism with the socialist internationalism of the early Soviet years, and continuing through the steady regression of the Stalinist regime toward the nationalist ideology that Marxism ostensibly rejected. The effect of that ideological contradiction on composers of minority populations within the Soviet imperium is compared with confinement in a ghetto.

Keywords:   Soviet nationalities policy, L’Internationale, Hymn of the Soviet Union, Stalin, Khrushchev, Yevgeniy Brusilovsky, Aram Khachaturyan, Mieczysław Weinberg
