Biography

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, From military school to composition

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov defied competition for making popular music shine forth within a full orchestra. Brought up in an aristocratic family, the young boy took his first lessons in composition at the age of nine. At first, he was to carry a sword and embark on a military career rather than play the piano. Rimsky-Korsakov attended the St. Petersburg Marine School while studying with the excellent pianist Theodore Canille who introduced him to the works of Robert Schumann and Felix Mendelssohn.
