Notes & Reviews:

19th Century Russia saw not only artistic revolutions but also political, military and economic ones. Pushkin's impetus in literature gave birth to, amongst others, Gogol, Dostoyevsky, and Tolstoy. The new bourgeois class had a taste for music. As in other countries, musical magazines began to appear. Mostly they published arrangements of popular melodies. Belaiev, a famous publisher, founded a series of concerts given in his home every second Friday. Naturally, these became known as Fridays at Belaiev's. Many of his friends participated in these evenings. Borodin sometimes played viola at these concerts, and Liadov or Glazounov played violin and, of course, the master of the house performed too, all in an atmosphere close to that of the Parisian salons in which, some years earlier, Chopin and Liszt had played. Celebrating their 17th season in 2005-2006, the Alcan Quartet is considered among the most dynamic ensembles on the Quebec chamber music scene today. Holding a residency in Chicoutimi, Quebec, the Quartet receives major support from the multinational aluminum company whose name it carries: Alcan.
