Description: This pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov spent much of his career in what is now Ukraine (at least until Putin seizes Odessa) but didn't go for the opulent orchestral textures and colors of his teacher. These works are in a form of classicism one might almost call chaste - bright, generally cheerful and completely untouched by the massive amounts of musical experimentation going on during his lifetime.
