Composers that were born in Russia, or gained the Russian nationality.


It is sometimes hard to tell when to call a composer modern, as opposed to Romantic. In general you can say that the Moder Eara in music started around the year 1900. However, many composers continued to write pieces in a romantic fashion long after that.
