Nikolay Andreyevich Rimsky-Korsakov (March 18, 1844 - June 21, 1908) was a Russian composer and teacher of classical music. He is particularly noted for a predilection for folk and fairy-tale subjects, and for his extraordinary skill in orchestration, which may have been influenced by his synesthesia. One of his better-known compositions is the exotic Capriccio espagnol.
