Back in the U.S.S.R.

By Mary Kunz Goldman

If you're going to be at Carnegie Hall Wednesday night to hear the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra wowing the Big Apple with Reinhold Gliere's Symphony No. 3, great!

If not, WNED-FM 94.5, Buffalo's classical station, will be broadcasting the performance live so you may listen to it there.

Whatever you do, do not neglect to watch "Composer Gliere."

It has a classic Cold War look. And it is great how they consistently refer to him as Reinhold Moritsevich Gliere. Russians always have those long names! I like that convention they have.

I also like the insights into Gliere.

"His melodies are so light-winged that they are very comfortable to dance." That is a dancer speaking.

Anyway, enjoy! Hit "CC" at the bottom of the video for English subtitles.
