After Boris

Sunday 18 July 2004 20:05-20:30 (Radio 3)

Why did Dvorak feel the need to write a sequel to Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov? To what extent do the events of the two operas correspond to historical fact? And are they linked musically? Piers Burton-Page investigates with Michael Beckerman, Lindsey Hughes and Jan Smaczny.

Duration:

25 minutes
