Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908) was one of the most important and influential composers in Russia. He was a member of what is known as “The Five”, a group of Russian composers, Mily Balakirev, Alexander Borodin, César Cui, and Modest Mussorgsky, who worked collaboratively and discussed their own musical works as well as the works of others. Rimsky’s main works were written for orchestra and opera, and his love for Russian folk music is noticeable in his style, also labelled by scholars as “Orientalism.” Anatoly Liadov, Sergei Prokofiev, and Respighi were several of his direct students, but he also influenced composers such as Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, and Paul Dukas.
