Music of Borodin and Rimsky-Korsakov

They were much vaunted musical Friday evenings: ‘Les Vendredis’ of philanthropist Mitrofan Belyayev in his house in St Petersburg. These salons devoted to string quartets and drinking were frequently attended by such composers as Borodin, Liadov and Rimsky-Korsakov who even wrote music specially for these gatherings. A quartet of orchestra members pay tribute to Belyayev in this informal late-night recital.
