Borodin: Symphony #2

Reminded today of one of my favorite, and not very often heard, symphonies today. Borodin’s Second. A professional chemist and avocational composer who left us a small number of wonderful works.  Check out particularly the elegiac slow movement that begins at 12:21. 

Here in a performance from Amsterdam, a bit rough and ready perhaps, but still enjoyable.
