Then came Glinka, Balakirev, Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Borodin, Scriabin, and Tchaikovsky. This program covers the distance from folk tradition to the founding of the Russian style of music by Glinka. Performers include James Galway, Osipov’s Balalaika Orchestra, and the Kirov, Bolshoi, and Royal Ballets. Contents include excerpts from: Glinka’s Russlan and Ludmilla Overture; Tcheshnikov’s Let Us Give Prayer; Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov, Coronation Scene; Borodin’s Quartet No. 2 in D Major; Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee, A Bride for the Czar; Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, Swan Lake, Symphony No. 6 (‘Path?tique’); Scriabin’s Prometheus; Stravinsky’s The Firebird.
