Wednesday Music: Borodin

Fluent Historian is the creator of this weekly challenge.  Bringing music to people that may never have heard the sounds that bring peace or happiness to one’s soul.

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!

  2. There is so much beautiful music that is unfamiliar to me. The world would be a better place if we all would sit down and listen to classical music for just 10 minutes a day. Thanks, Suze

  3. Beautiful! I think from that same general time period, Russian Mussorgsky composed Night On Bald Mountain. That’s one of my favorites, too.
