Nietzsche's Orphans

The epilogue considers the legacy of musical metaphysics among educated Russians both in the Soviet Union and among the Russian émigré community. While the utopian vision of musical metaphysics continued to underpin Soviet experimentation in music throughout the 1920s, many of Nietzsche’s orphans gradually lost faith in music’s ability to transform society; instead, music was commonly evoked as a means through which to elicit memory of an idealized Russian past.
