Notes & Reviews:
The tour starts in Uzbekistan, of which there are later glimpses. There is a visit to the historic Russian town of Suzdal and scenes from Crimea. Two important religious centers are seen, the Trinity Monastery at Sergiyev Posad (formerly Zagorsk) and the Monastery of the Caves in Kiev. The music for the tour is taken from Russian composers who were, by and large, thoroughly imbued with the spirit of their country and its exotic territories. This is reflected in Borodin's Overture to his unfinished opera Prince Igor and in the work of the pioneer Glinka, the Armenian Khachaturian and Rimsky-Korsakov.
