Russian Classical Music

A few old favourites and some ideas for music which you perhaps haven't heard before

Borodon String Quartet (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSdMKJqnnW4)

Dargomizhsky The Stone Guest (http://www.allmusic.com/album/alexander-dargom%C3%AFzhsky-the-stone-guest-mw0002014045)

Rachmaninov's Two Pieces (for violin and piano); Piano Concertos (incidentally, if you get the chance read his racy autobiography.  It's surprising he had any time for music!)
