Igor Stravinsky composed his Pogrebal’naya Pesnya (Funeral Song) in memory of his teacher, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, shortly after Rimsky’s death in June 1908. The 12-minute work was performed only once, in a Russian symphony concert conducted by Felix Blumenfeld in the Conservatoire in January 1909, but was always thought to have been destroyed in the 1917 revolutions or the civil war that followed.
Thought for more than 100 years to have been irretrievably lost, the work has been found at last in a pile of old manuscripts in a back room of the St Petersburg Conservatoire.

- Stravinsky: Funeral Song, op. 5 (12')
