Russian 20th Century composer and conductor Sergei Nikiforovich Vasilenko (1872-1956) was, like Rachmaninov, once conductor of the Mamontov Opera. His Asiatic influences are shown in the Chinese Suite and the Hindu Suite. He wrote five operas, the best known probably being Christopher Columbus, and a number of ballets, choral pieces, and other works.
