He 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.[2][3][4]

Borodin is best known for his symphonies, his two string quartets, In the Steppes of Central Asia and his opera Prince Igor. Music from Prince Igor and his string quartets was later adapted for the US musical Kismet. A notable advocate of women’s rights, Borodin was a promoter of education in Russia and founded the School of Medicine for Women in St. Petersburg. Continue reading Alexander Borodin
