    Very Russian?

    Besides the Matryoshka-dolls what exactly is Russian about it?

    Beethoven was German, the performers are all asian (possibly Japanese), and Theremin, besides the nationality of the creator is not an instrument associated with Russia or Russian music at all…

      Many Asians are Russian or many Russians are Asian. Look how big the USSR got. And don’t forget that USA bought Alaska from Russia. Germany is almost a bigger melting pot than NYC. does it really matter?
