Notes & Reviews:

Borodin was probably the most innately gifted of the Russian nationalist group of composers known as 'The Mighty Handful', but composed less than any of them. His symphonies demonstrate both European and Asian influences and many of Borodin's themes, if not all actual folk melodies, have the flavor of central Asian nomadic tribal music, perhaps stemming from his Tartar ancestry.
