Example 4. The use of Balakirev’s suggested D major for the pair of “Romeo and Juliet’s themes” in the secondary area of that Overture Fantasy (1869), with implications of Artôt’s acronym D – A (enharmonic German sixth). This key also appears in “The Letter Scene” (Eugene Onegin 1877) with the same bVI emphasis, as well as the famous “None but the Lonely Heart” No. 6 of Op. 6 (1869), a song cycle dedicated to Artôt.
