Plevitskaya

1971 BK. Discovered 1971 Jan. 22 by L. I. Chernykh at Nauchnyj.

Named in memory of Nadezhda Vasil'evna Ple-vitskaya (1884-1940), a splendid Russian singer who sparkled on the stages of Russia, Europe and America. Many great connoisseurs of Russian art called her "Russian skylark" and "nightingale". Leonid Sobi-nov {see planet (4449)} sang with her, and Sergej Rakhmaninov {see planet (4345)} accompanied for her. (M 26762)
