Arseny Golenishchev-Kutuzov

Arseny Arkadyevich Goleníshchev-Kutúzov (Russian: ?-, IPA: [?r's?enj ?r'kad?j?vt? l'n?i?:?f k?'tuz?f] ; 1848-1913), was a Russian poet known in part for writing the texts of Modest Mussorgsky's two song cycles of the 1870s: Sunless and Songs and Dances of Death.[1]

He was the son of Arkadii Pavlovich Golenischev-Kutuzov [ru] (1812-1859), a senator and state secretary for the Kingdom of Poland, and the grandson of Pavel Vassiliyevich Golenischev-Kutuzov [ru] (1772-1843), governor-general of St. Petersburg 1825-1830 (the latter is not to be confused with field marshal Mikhail Illarionovich Goleníschev-Kutúzov who commanded the Russian forces against the Napoleon invasion in Russia in 1812, and who came from a younger noble branch of the family).[2][3]
