Alexander Borodin

November 12, 1833 - February 27, 1887
born in St. Petersburg, Russia, composed during the Romantic period
Alexander Borodin (1833-1887) was a late Romantic Russian nationalist composer who was known for his involvement with the so-called "Mighty Handful," along with Rimsky-Korsakov, Mussorgsky, Cui, and Balakirev. A chemist and educator by profession, Borodin spent many years laboring on his compositions, devoting five years to his Symphony No. 2 in B minor and several decades to his opera, Prince Igor, which was left unfinished at his death. The "Polovetsian Dances" from Prince Igor, the tone poem In the Steppes of Central Asia, and the melodious Nocturne (taken from the String Quartet No. 2) are among Borodin's most enduring works. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

Similar Composers aren't Prokofiev. Not sure where they got that. More like Glazunov, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsa k o v , and Sibelius.

Is it me or is Borodin's Petite Suite for Piano the tune of Night of Nights most remembered as sung by a young Vic Demone in the 1950's era prodution of Kizmet with Howard Keel, Ann Blyth and my personal favorite in the film Dolores Grey?
my husband who has a form of dimentia loves the music and his feet are always atappin. Luscious music.
And this is my beloved....y e p , I'd forgotten, but that's ol Borodin too. DMB
Also, one of the nicest people I know and dearest friends is an ex Russian communist party member. Serga; he still carries a communist party ID card he'll show you. Not so fast comrade, the KGB may be watching. DMB
Borodin, I think, kind of slipped away into the mists of time and you don't have people putting that much attention on his music these days but he did do some magificent pieces. I've always loved his Bolaro and it's transition from a snake charmers flute to a thundering, pounding crescendo. Now that there's Pandora there's a lot more Borodin. Ledder rip comrade. DMB

Amazing music and I love that he was a chemist by day, composer by night! :)
I discovered Borodin's music in 1953 when I was 17 years old. Over the years this beautiful music, sadly limited in volume, has brought me uncountable hours of joy. The fine adaptation of his music by Robert Wright and George Forrest for the musical "Kismet" has to be included
Such artistry and talent amidst the labor of the day, in the passion of heart. This I admire greatly.
The Polovtsian Dances chorus in Russian language sounds absolutely heavenly!
Huzzah for an artist organic chemist! :)
the music is very exciting. i think it wld be good as background music for a movie.
