Tatiana Rimskaya-Korsakova, who is a descendant of Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov, and a group of enthusiasts in Russia work on preservation of heritage of Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov. I know first-hand that they badly need financial support. To my knowledge, there is no goverment sponsorship of any kind to this effort. If you like the music of Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov and interested to help, please contact them. Contact information can be found at:

Need to relax? Try brain teasers. I would recommend those marked 'cool'.
