The collection ´´Poems´´ belongs to the pen of the brilliant Russian poet, ´´the sun of Russian poetry´´, the playwright and prose writer A. Pushkin (1799-1837). Pushkin wrote 12 poems. The greatest of his poem, ´´Ruslan and Lyudmila,´´ he began by studying in the Lyceum. Witty, brilliant, full of enthusiasm, she immediately became popular. And the ´´Caucasian Prisoner´´, ´´Robber Brothers´´, ´´Bakhchisarai Fountain´´ introduced a new stream into Russian literature - revolutionary romanticism. This was a poetic expression of the revolutionary-minded noble youth, the Decembrists. Pushkin also wrote such remarkable works as ´´Eugene Onegin´´, ´´Scenes from Knightly Times´´, ´´The Story of Belkin´´, ´´The Queen of Spades´´, ´´The Gypsies´´, ´´Roslavlev´´, ´´The Lodge in Kolomna´´, ´´The Prisoner of the Caucasus´´, ´´Poltava´´. Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin, during his lifetime, earned himself the reputation of the greatest poet of Russia, whose work influenced the development of both Russian and world literature. The greatest merit of the genius poet is also in the fact that he became the creator of the modern Russian literary language.
At the age of 20, having recently graduated from the Moscow Conservatory, Rachmaninoff wrote his Morceaux de Salon, Op. 10, in 1893, and 3 years later, the six Moments Musicaux. These beautiful works display a simple, often Chopinesque style of romanticism while bearing the unmistakable Russian flavor the composer captured in all his work. This is the 1989 Belwin-Mills edition.

For more than 400 years, the art of ballet has stood at the center of Western civilization. Its traditions serve as a record of our past. A ballerina dancing The Sleeping Beauty today is a link in a long chain of dancers stretching back to 16th-century Italy and France: Her graceful movements recall a lost world of courts, kings, and aristocracy, but her steps and gestures are also marked by the dramatic changes in dance and culture that followed. Ballet has been shaped by the Renaissance and Classicism, the Enlightenment and Romanticism, Bolshevism, Modernism, and the Cold War. Apollo´s Angels is a groundbreaking work---the first cultural history of ballet ever written, beautifully told. Ballet is unique: It has no written texts or standardized notation. It is a storytelling art passed on from teacher to student. The steps are never just the steps---they are a living, breathing document of a culture and a tradition. And while ballet´s language is shared by dancers everywhere, its artists have developed distinct national styles. French, Italian, Danish, Russian, English, and American traditions each have their own expression, often formed in response to political and societal upheavals. From ballet´s origins in the Renaissance and the codification of its basic steps and positions under France´s Louis XIV (himself an avid dancer), the art form wound its way through the courts of Europe, from Paris and Milan to Vienna and St. Petersburg. It was in Russia that dance developed into the form most familiar to American audiences: The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, and The Nutcracker originated at the Imperial court. 1. Language: English.
