Also known as the Mighty Handful, Balakirev, Borodin, Cui, Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and their colleagues transformed classical music in Russia, using colors and rhythms to express the soul of the people and setting historical narratives and folk tales in their songs and operas.

"God grant that our Slav guests may never forget today’s concert; God grant that they may forever preserve the memory of how much poetry, feeling, talent and intelligence are possessed by the small but already mighty handful of Russian musicians."
—Critic Vladimir Stasov, 1867
