Alexander Borodin (1833-1887) is mainly remembered as a composer, but he was also an important chemist and a staunch champion of women's higher education. A biography that gives all these aspects their due has never been attempted.
Many sources and memoirs in Russian and other languages were used including Borodin's letters to scientists, musicians and, of course, to his wife and relatives.
This book will be valuable to musicologists and historians of science alike. It should appeal to a wider audience of music lovers and people interested in Russian history.
The author is a chemist and worked as a specialist in scientific and patent information. Additionally, he studied music and graduated in Russian studies. He published several articles in these fields.
