Misc. Comments

These works are melomimics- mixtures of song and "melodeclamations" in the composers words (rhythmic speech, somewhat like Schoenberg's later Sprechstimme), according to Larry Sitsky's "Music of the repressed Russian avant-garde, 1900-1929". Sitsky seems to date them by 1902 or so. Sibley guesses 1896, but note the 1901 date on the last page they digitized...

Need to look at score but if only "V. Brusov" is given and Vladimir was a guess, might also be Valery Bryusov.
