Prince Igor

The Polovtsian Dances is one of the best known selections from the Prince Igor, an opera composed by Alexander Borodin at the end of the nineteenth century.
This is a sound of true Russia, which includes the silences echoing from Siberia (that 'ocean of snow') and the poetry of Pushkin. Pushkin, who was of African (Abyssinian) descent on his mother's side.
