Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

Rimsky-Korsakov, a Russian composer noted for his skill in orchestration, completed his first symphony at the age of 21, while serving as a midshipman with the Imperial Russian Navy. In 1871, he became a professor at St. Petersburg Conservatory, and he taught many famous future composers, including Igor Stravinsky. As a member of a group of nationalist composers known as "The Five," Rimsky-Korsakov aimed to write music of distinctively Russian character. What often inspired his work? More...

Rimsky-Korsakov often used fairy tales and Russian lore as inspiration for his musical scores.

Happy birthday Mr. Korsakov! What a pity you wasted all that time in the wrong place when you could have produced more art!

His world travels, however, showed him many different and beautiful locations, which served as
inspiration for music that he wrote some time lat
er.

Rimsky-Korsakov also began arranging and reworking Russian composers’ music, such as
Mussorgsky’s opera Boris Gudonov. His arrangements of Mussorgky’s compositions were far from
the originals, but he launched them to the spotlight that they deserved. Rimsky-Korsakov also took
on the responsibility of finishing the works of his friend Alexander Borodin after Borodin’s sudden
death. These jobs as well as caring for his own ailing family prevented Rimsky-Korsakov from writing
much of his own music, but he was able to complete several suites inspired by his travels years
earlier. These pieces included Russian Easter Overture, Capriccio Espagñole, and Schéhérazade,
which is perhaps his most famous work, and told the story of an ancient Persian legend through
music. The original story of Schéhérazade also inspired the Disney movie Aladdin!
