Prince Igor

In winter I can only compose when I am too unwell to give my lectures. So my friends, reversing the usual custom, never say to me, ‘I hope you are well’ but ‘I do hope you are ill.’
~ Borodin

I thought I'd featured chemist/composer Alexander Borodin's Prince Igor before, but I couldn't find a Music Monday post about it. So here it is!

Borodin hadn't quite finished work on Prince Igor when he died in 1887, so his friends Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Alexander Glazunov completed it for him.
