Yulia Khrushcheva, the granddaughter raised by the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev after her father died in the War and her mother was sent to Siberia, died yesterday in Moscow.

It is reported that she fell under a passing train at a railway station. Yulia was 77.

    Exactly what does this have to do with “the inside track on classical music? (Please, no jokes about railroad tracks.)

    What an extraordinary story this is

    it even cannot be read as Anna Karenina’s story because of her age … I could only guess this is something personal to Norman
    P.S. If you seek for Russian tales – lovely Anna Netrenbo is to sing Adriana Lecouvreur for the first time in her life at the Mariinsky on June 18 and 21. Side tickets of about 200 USD are still there for the 21st – wanna have a ride to St.Peter ? Lion’s Palace Four Seasons has a lot of splendor for you only for about 8000 USD a night ….
