Culture Vulture: Review of "An Evening of One-Act Plays by Anton Chekhov"11/11/06

To get the gist of Russian life during the 19th century, one can either read at least 500 pages of Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel such as "Crime and Punishment" or watch "An Evening of One-Act Plays by Anton Chekhov," which is currently showing in Seton Hill University's Reeves Theater from November 10 to November 18, 2006.

After performing the four pieces in this set, Persin said that Mendelssohn's music was romantic. In what sense is his work romantic?

Is it the type of romantic that deals with heroic adventure, chivalry and love? Or is this the romantic type which "pertains to the musical style characteristic chiefly of the 19th century and marks by the free expression of imagination and emotion".
