About the Composer

Alexander Borodin was a Russian Romantic composer and chemist of Georgian–Russian parentage. He was a member of the group of composers called “The Five”or “The Mighty Handful”, who were dedicated to producing Russian art music.

Borodin was the illegitimate son of a Georgian nobleman and a peasant woman. His father registered his birth as the son of one of his serfs. He received a good education, including piano lessons, but it was chemistry in which he specialized, and he did not receive any formal lessons in composition until 1863, when he was taught by Mily Balakirev.

Despite being recognized as an accomplished composer, Borodin always earned a living as a chemist, and gained great respect in that field. As a result, describing himself as a ‘Sunday composer’, he was not as prolific a composer as many of his contemporaries, but many of his works are well known including the opera “Prince Igor” with the familiar Polovtsian Dances and the symphonic poem “In the Steppes of Central Asia”
