Why do we like Russian Music so much?

St. Augustine's Church, Richmond Road, Cambridge, CB4 3PS

Stephen Lawrence, well-known local musician, reflects on the many influences – pagan, folk, church, baroque, modern and post Soviet – that have shaped so much of the Russian music with which we are familiar and which we enjoy. Illustrated by live performances of some Russian songs.
