    NIKOLAI RIMSKY-KORSAKOV BIOGRAPHY
    1844-1908
     
    RIMSKY-KORSAKOV was a brilliant RUSSIAN COMPOSER/NATIONALIST, Naval Officer, and composer of the famous "THE FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLE-BEE" from "The Tale Of Tsar Saltan"!
     
    Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov was born in Tikhvin, Russia on March 6, 1844 into a prominent naval military family. He entered the St. Petersburg Naval Academy at the age of 12, where he also studied cello and piano. At the age of 17, Rimsky-Korsakov's music teacher introduced him to Mili Balakirev, who brought Rimsky-Korsakov into his group of RUSSIAN NATIONALISTS composers named the "MIGHTY HANDFUL" or "MIGHTY FIVE" - which comprised of Borodin, Mussorgky, Balakirev, Cui and now Rimsky-Korsakov.
     
    Between 1862-1865, while finishing a Russian Naval tour, Rimsky-Korsakov began composing his First Symphony. He decided to end his naval career and concentrate on composing and being a professor. Rimsky-Korsakov insistent on becoming totally trained in theory and composition and he wrote books on harmony and orchestration ("Principles Of Orchestration"). One of his most famous students was the Russian genius composer Igor Stravinsky ("The Rite Of Spring").
     
    Rimsky-Korsakov wrote his famous tone poem "Capriccio Espanol" in 1887. He was inspired to compose "Scheherazade" in 1888 from the "Arabian Nights" and he composed about 15 operas, mostly based on Russian fairy tales, folk themes and magic, including the Opera "The Tale Of Tsar Saltan".
     
    "THE TALE OF TSAR SALTAN" Opera Featuring "THE FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLE-BEE"
    Rimsky-Korsakov wrote the 4 Act Opera "The Tale Of Tsar Saltan" in 1900, which features the now world-famous "The Flight Of The Bumble-Bee" (which happens to be The Great Kat's Signature Song!). This is a fairy tale about 3 sisters, the youngest of which marries a Tsar. The older 2 sister's become servants to this Tsar. When the Tsar's new wife has a baby son, Prince Gvidon, the 2 jealous sisters throw the baby and the mother in a barrel into the sea. The son grows up and wants to go home to see his father. A magical swan turns him into a BUMBLE-BEE so he could fly to visit his fathers' court, where he stings his evil aunt's eye. In the end, the swan turns out to be a princess who he marries. Prince Gvidon, his mother and the Tsar are all reunited.
     
     
    Rimsky-Korsakov died on June 21, 1908 in Lyubensk after suffering angina. He was buried next to Borodin, Mussorgsky and Glinka. Rimsky-Korsakov is known as ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AND PROLIFIC COMPOSERS IN RUSSIAN HISTORY.
