Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov


Russian composer, a master of orchestration, and a member of the group of composers known as The Five. His best-known orchestral compositions—Capriccio Espagnol, the Russian Easter Festival Overture, and the symphonic suite Scheherazade—are staples of the classical music repertoire, along with suites and excerpts from some of his 15 operas. Scheherazade is an example of his frequent use of fairy-tale and folk subjects.

He married Nadezhda Purgold in July 1872, with Modest Mussorgsky serving as best man. The Rimsky-Korsakovs had seven children. He died on 21 June 1908 in Lubensk, Russia.

Source Notes

Starkman quotes Maria Chistyakova, an astrologer from Moscow: "his time of birth is in the family archive. Record was made by his mother: « Nika was born in March 6, at 04 h. 53 min in the afternoon, in March 27 at 07 h. in the afternoon was christened». The same time is in Boris Izraitel's book.

Sy Scholfield quotes from Nicolas Slonimsky: Russian and Soviet music and composers edited by Electra Yourke (Psychology Press, 2004), page 25: "On March 6, 1844 (according to the Russian old- style calendar), Rimsky-Korsakov's father, a 60- year-old middle-class citizen from the small town of Tikhvin, in the Novgorod district, wrote down in his pocket almanac; 'Nika, born at 4:53 P.M.'”

Formerly, Wemyss in "Wheel of Life," gave 10.30 am, same in Sabian Symbols No.793 (March 6 OS).
