In Response to:
I've read a lot of (mostly fatuous) comments about the score. Yes composers borrow but have I missed something? This owes an awful lot to Alexander Nevsky by Prokofiev, a piece of music which was all about russian patriotism. The review puts forward some silly theaory about the 4 note motif - listen to Nevsky and compare!
