Forgotten pages of music history. Arseny Koreschenko (1870-1920)‌

Chirkova Maria A.

The period at the turn of the 20th century in Russia was the time of remarkable cultural uplift when a pleiad of masters rose into distinction. Besides widely recognized musicians there was quite a number of characters, whose names nowadays are almost in oblivion. One of them was Arseniy NikolaevichKoreschenko, the Russian composer, pianist and music teacher, who played an important role in the musical life of Russia. His creative activity, first bringing him success, dramatically ended: at the age of 38 Arseniy Nikolaevich, who graduated Moscow Conservatory with the Great Gold Medal and promised well, stopped creating music. One of the reasons for that was the composer's depression after hisballet "Magic Mirror" had been presented in the theatre and turned out to be a fiasco. However today we can see those events in a new light and make a new evaluationof Koreschenko's creative works.
