BORODIN EDITION (10 CDS)

$ 47.49 $ 49.99

Alexander Porfir’yevich Borodin, inarguably best known for his membership in the Russian Mighty Handful, was a chemist by profession and composed in his spare time. Despite the hint toward dilettantism that might be suggested, nothing amateurish can be traced in the small but sophisticated opus left to us. This near-complete edition comprehends his three highly original symphonies, complete chamber music, songs, piano music, and his unfinished masterpiece opera Prince Igor. Mostly Russian performers execute flawless performances with distinct national flavor.
