On this day,
November 12, 1833
Russian chemist and Romantic musical composer
Alexander Porfiryevich Borodin
[Александр Порфирьевич Бородин]
Borodin was one of the prominent 19th-century composers known as “The Mighty Handful”,
a group dedicated to producing a uniquely Russian kind of classical music,
rather than imitating earlier Western European models.
Borodin is known best for his symphonies, his two string quartets,
the symphonic poem In the Steppes of Central Asia and his opera Prince Igor.

I was going to say “Too bad they had the revolutIon” but then looked up Rachmaninoff who goes into the 1940s… So I guess we could say how beautiful the “romantic” side of Russia is..?
