Russian composers have created some of the most beautiful and powerful classical music. Here are some of the big names… In the 19th century, a group called the “Mighty Five” (Rimsky-Korsakov, Mussorgsky, Balakirev, Borodin, and Cesar Cui) banded together and made their goal the promotion of purely Russian music.
