Based on the reappraisal of primary documents, the music, and the milieux (cultural, historical, and social) in which the composers lived and worked, this revision affects in some respect most major composers in this study--namely, Glinka, Mily Balakirev, Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov, Aleksandr Borodin, Modest Musorgsky, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Sergey Rachmaninoff, Alexsandr Scriabin, Igor Stravinsky (through Les Noces), Sergey Prokoflev, and Shostakovich.
I myself published the 1881 version of Prince Igor's aria, whose autograph had not been known to musicologists before (Albrecht Gaub and Melanie Unseld, Ein Furst, zwei Prinzessinnen und vier Spieler: Anmerkungen zum Werk Aleksandr Borodins, Studia Slavica Musicologica, 6 [Berlin: Ernst Kuhn, 1994], 54-72); unlike the scenes published by Dmitriev and Nefyodov, however, the aria was familiar from the traditional version, but only with Rimsky-Korsakov's emendations.
