For classical music people - Is anyone familiar with Prinz Igor <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" /> by Borodin? I am desperately trying to locate one chunk of music from that work and I can't remember the name....

The Polovtsian Dances is probably the chunk you are looking for.

Whatever you do, don't go and see Prince Igor because of that lovely Polovtsian Dance music. Went in Genoa on a nightstop a few years ago, performed by the Russian Opera. Jeez- I was unconscious during most of it. I have never been so bored in my life listening to 'extreme' baritones singing Roosian for hours. Tip for you- go out and buy 'Stranger in Paradise' music- I think the Polovtsian Dance music was raided for that!

Thanks people. I am aware that Stranger in Paradise is plagarised from the Polovstian Dances but the piece I am trying to identify is in 6/8 time and sounds like a three legged horse.... .. .BOOM chatchat BOOM chatchat etc.. and has something about "Praise him for his valour fearless KAAAAAAAAAHN ! " (Wish you could write misic in this forum!) I've tried listening to the samples on Amazon but still can't find it.. .. .Sorry - this isn't really JB stuff!

Go to. .. .audiogalaxy.com. .. .I typed in borodin prinz igor and got this result:. .. .A. Borodin - Polowetzer Taenze - 3 minutes 46 seconds. . .. .Seems a bit short to me and is probably not what you are looking for but go the site anyway. You can find and download virtually anything.

Skytrucker87,. .. .If you are looking for a CD of 'Polovtsian Dances', (about 11.5 mins) Prince Igor from Borodin, I can recommend Geoffrey Simon's conducting the Philharmonia orchestra & BBC Symphony Chorus, CALA records CD number-thingy CACD1029.. .. .It can be a little difficult finding a version with chorus - lots of cheap CD's instrumental only - if my experience in OZ is any guide. Took me two years, two crook CD's given as presents, and finally one quality record store before I was. .able to get a satisfactory recording.. .. . <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" /> . .. .Hope this helps you a little, . .. .Cheers, NTLBD

Can't help much with Borodin...always thought him common....but might I direct you toward Alexander Scriabin. I'm listening to his preludes and etudes right now, as a matter of fact....the Horowitz recording. Marvellous! Just perfect for Ppruning.
