Borodin is a classical music composer who wrote his compositions from 1862 to 1897. He was Georgian (Russian) and a chemist prior to his learning music composition from Mily Balakirev.
He wrote mostly symphonies, but did compose a few operas. Prince Igor is perhaps the opera that most people immediately identify with Borodin.
This Nocturne is perhaps my favorite of all his compositions. I hope you find it as beautiful as I do. Enjoy!
