The great social eruption of Russia in 1917 threw away the country’s intellect and soul. Among the great artists who escaped Russia and came to New York––like Rachmaninoff, Chaliapin, Gretchaninoff, Ziloti––was Vladimir Drozdoff. His music, inspired mostly by nostalgia for his lost Motherland, accumulated the memories and dreams by which Russian intellectuals lived in exile.
