Welcome to the public engagement website for Marina Frolova-Walker, Professor of Music History at the University of Cambridge.


One of the world’s leading authorities on Russian music, Professor Frolova-Walker has introduced international audiences not only to new repertories, but also to new ways of thinking about established works. Elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 2014, and the recipient in 2015 of the RMA Dent Medal for her outstanding contribution to Musicology, Professor Frolova-Walker is committed to sharing the insights gained from her research with a wider public, through talks, radio and tv appearances, and publications.

This website brings together video, audio, and text resources in which Professor Frolova-Walker explores Russian Music  – including works by Glinka, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich – in its historical and political contexts.
