Glazunov's symphonic poem ' Stenka Razin ' takes its name from the hero of the story which the music illustrates. He was a fierce marauder. With his cruel horde he terrorised over a wid*e area of the Volga, where his own ship sailed in more than regal splendour. The sails were silk, the oars of gold, and in a pavilion on the deck there rested, surrounded by every mark of opulence, the Princess Persane, Stenka's captive and mistress. One day she told his comrades of a dream, in which Stenka had been shot and all his band put to death, while she herself perished in the waves of the Volga. Her dream came true. Stenka was surrounded by the soldiers of the Tsar, and death or surrender were the only alternatives. Calling his men round him, he said to them ' Never, through all the thirty years of my career, have I offered a gift to the Volga. Today I give it what is for me the most precious of all the treasures of the earth ', and with these words he hurled the princess into the stream. His warriors raised a song in his glory and then all flung themselves upon the ring of bayonets. With Chat description in mind, the music unfolds with vivid picturesqueness.
