Olesya Rostovskaya

No historical account is known which would provide us with a detailed description of music that Tsar Peter would have heard from the bell-tower of Peter and Paul Cathedral in St. Petersburg where the first Russian carillon was mounted. According to the fashion of the time it would have included well-known melodies, ecclesiastical music, military music (which Peter encouraged in every possible way), music played during court assemblées and popular (folk) music.
