I find offensive that you find offensive an opinion. Anyway, the moderator is free to censor as she/he pleases. One thing is true neither your post or mine brings anything to the thread, but still some of your posts on this thread made me dizzy.

Happy New Year to all!!!

I have a cd with chamber music of Sergei Taneyev, and it states that he was Anna's father. Is this correct ? Someone has said that he was her cousin.
I am not sure about this, and am a bit confused. One of her male relations was a senior Court official as well.
How do they all fit in ?
The answer is probably in this topic somewhere, but I am too lazy to search for it !
Does anyone know for sure ?

as far as one can trust wikipedia Anna's father was Alexander Taneyev, Court official & composer. Sergei Taneyev was A. Taneyev's distant cousin. I think they are right though.

Yes. Thank you.
By the way, the music is not great. I dont think he was a very good composer, or all that popular in Russia. Not by the standards of the day I think. Certainly not in the same league as Tchaikovsky, Glinka or any of the others.

I agree-his works aren't very best especially if you compare them to those of Tchaikovsky(who btw is my most favorite composer).
though S. Taneyev was Tchaikovsky's student(if I remember well)

Dear friends, Happy New Year to all!

Some minor corrections. You little a bit confused two second-cousin nephews;).

Anna's father was another man, not Sergei Ivanovich Taneev (1856-1915), who was a very famous Russian composer of that time and Tchaikovsky student and friend. You can find a lot of his works through the Internet.

Her father was Alexander Sergeevich Taneev (1850-1918), a functionary of a high rank and in addition a composer, but less known and with rather lower musical degree. By the way, he was a student of another great Russian composer Rimsky-Korsakov. Sometime ago I was searching through the internet his musical works, but haven't found anything;(  Even in the Russian internet.

Sergei Ivanovich Taneev and Alexander Sergeevich Taneev were relatives, they were second-cousin nephews.

Also, as I clearly understand morvilaRomanov was asking about Anna's brother:
Taneev Sergei Alexandrovich (19.2.1886, Saint Petersburg - 1975, New York).
He was a rather simple man, compared to both nephews. And worked as a organiser of a different Court ceremonies.
Was married on Princess Tatiana Ilinichna Jorjadze, who died in 1990, also in U.S.A.

re posts #91 and #99 by Douglas and RomanovsFan4Ever.
The right man standing in the back is Prince Chakrabongse from Siam (now Thailand).
See wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Chakrabongse_Bhuvanath_of_Siam,_The_Prince_of_Phitsanulok

I think the men are wearing the uniform of the Corps des Pages for that is where the Prince was studying while in St. Petersburg.

MIEK, YOU MADE A MISTAKE.

THIS TOPIC IS ABOUT ANNA VYRUBOVA.

WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE PRINCE YOU HAVE MENTIONED.

Thank you Miek for your excellent answer  to my question about those gentlemen guests of Miss Anna.  The Corps of Pages is still in operation as a military school for young men of high school age. The original building is still standing.

here is the website for the college...Corps of Pages as it is today:

I didn´t know where else to put it....

It seems that chapter 15 of Anna´s book is missing from here http://www.alexanderpalace.org/russiancourt2006/
Or rather - it is the same as chapter 14. Then there is a unlogical leap to chapter 16.

Pleas,e could somebody fix that, so we could get the chapter?
