Delayed Premieres

Abstract

The topic for discussion of the leading musicologists-historians S. I. Savenko, L. V. Kirillina, Yu. S. Veksler was the phenomenon of “delayed premieres” in world culture, when the opus was first presented to the public much later than the time of the end of work on it. The problem is considered in a broad cultural aspect, since such a reinterpretation of cultural events when they fall into a different historical environment is a fairly common phenomenon.
