During 1875 Borodin started his First String Quartet, much to the displeasure of Mussorgsky and Vladimir Stasov. That Borodin did so in the company of The Five, who were hostile to chamber music, demonstrates his independence. From the First Quartet onward, he displayed mastery of the form. His Second Quartet, in which his strong lyricism is represented in the popular "Nocturne", followed during 1881. The First Quartet is richer in changes of mood Musical legacy.
The String Quartet No. 2 is a string quartet in D major written by Alexander Borodin in 1881. It was dedicated to his wife Ekaterina Protopova. Of its four movements, the third movement "Notturno" is the most famous.
Perhaps to forestall criticism that a string quartet with a narrative subtext could not be taken seriously, Borodin constructed the piece very strictly; all four movements are in sonata-form. The memorable melodies of the two middle movements were brought into American popular culture by the musical Kismet, which was based entirely on Borodin’s music. Borodin’s first quartet, in A major (1877-79), is not a match for the second. Pyotr Tchaikovsky (1843). Opus 11, in D major (1871).
String Quartet No. 2 in D Major-Allegro Moderato. 16. Notturno-Andante. 17. Finale- Andante- Vivcace. The most famous Borodin works are included here, including In the Steppes of Central Asia, Polovtsian Dances, Symphony no. 2, and the familiar and gorgeous 2nd String Quartet (performed by the Borodin Quartet) which has themes used in the popular songs "Bobbles, Bangles and Beads" and "This Is My Beloved. Also included are lesser-known works such as the 1st and incomplete 3rd symphonies, and 2 arias from Prince Igor, and a song dedicated to the death of Mussorgsky, "For the Shores of Your Far-off Native Land
Borodin's String Quartet No. 2 in D major differs from many of the composer's other works in two ways: it was completed quickly, during August 1881, and it lacks a published program. These two factors may be related; Borodin dedicated the quartet to his wife Ekaterina, and it was written as an evocation of when they met and fell in love in Heidelberg 20 years earlier. The composer seems to have represented himself in this quartet with the cello (he was an amateur player), while Ekaterina is portrayed by the first violin.
The performance here by the Goldner String Quartet is lyrical and clean, all that could be desired, really. But equally attractive is the opening Piano Quintet in C minor of 1862, with an electric performance by Piers Lane on the piano. This is supposed to be a work from Borodin's pre-nationalist period, but you'd never know it from the opening theme. The Cello Sonata in B minor is a partially lost work later reconstructed by composer Mikhail Goldstein, who claimed to have written a third of the end result . Cello Sonata In B Minor - 3.
