Today’s mystery piece: Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Procession of the Nobles” from Mlada. It’s a short work by a Russian composer with sailing experience. His family pushed him to serve in the Navy, so he enlisted. He went on a long training cruise from Russia to England to the Americas. I think I read somewhere that he visited Niagara Falls on that trip!
