A number of compositions by the Romanov royal family have been unearthed and revived
(St Petersburg Times, English)

The concert held at Tavrichesky Palace on Dec. 10 could probably have claimed a Guinness book entry: It took at least 15 years to put together. The cause was well worth the lengthy preparations. The performance, entitled The Imperial Musical Collection, showcased 20 long-lost musical works composed exclusively by members of the Romanov family, including Tsar Alexander II and Prince Konstantin Romanov

Thanks Neil. I looked at photos of Romanov's I didn't know.

I can't say that I am sympathetic to his regime.

They show now movie Mishka Yaponchik. It is about revolution. There were gangsters on both sides. Amazing thing is that Petlura now is Ukrainian hero.
He was killed by Schwarzbard because he blamed him for killing is family.

Mishka Yaponchik joined Red army and was killed too.

I only knew names (another name is Kotovsky). It was interesting to learn more about them!!!

It is easy to romanticise the Romanov family, of course - especially after what happened to them.

But in truth they were as brutal and ruthless - not to say clueless - as those who shot them.
