Happy birthday, Reinhold


bluebird of bitterness

It’s the birthday of Russian composer Reinhold Glière, who was born in Ukraine in 1875… which I mention only because it gives me an excuse to post this great performance of the Russian Sailors’ Dance from Glière’s most famous composition, the Red Poppy Ballet.
