Glinka was the father of modern Russian music, and Russian and Ludmilla, his second opera, was one of the first big works of a really national character which the country produced. The tale is founded on an early poetical romance by Pushkin, and the poet himself had agreed to make it into an opera libretto for Glinka. Almost immediately afterwards, however, he was killed in a duel, and the libretto, as the composer used it, was the work of no fewer than five different hands.

When Beethoven composed his ballet of Protnetheus in 1800-1 he had been some four years in Vienna, and was gradually becoming known as a composer of importance. He had given his first concert at the Burg Theatre a year before, followed by others, and had spent the winter months composing this ballet, the first really big work, excepting the First Symphony, he had yet attempted. It was put on at the Burg Theatre on March 28, 1801, and scored a great and immediate success. It had a run of sixteen nights, almost a triumph. Haydn heard it, and liked it; he confessed as much to Beethoven.
