Polovtsian Dances (from Prince Igor, completed after Borodin's death, ca. 1890)

~ Work

Annotation

This work seems to contain at least two parts, No. 8 and No. 17. No. 8 seems to be an instrumental prelude, and is often omitted. No. 17 has a brief instrumental introduction, then has a chorus with soloists. These are the only numbered parts evident.

See Wikipedia article "Polovtsian Dances" for more on the work's structure. See CPDL public domain score "Polovetsian Dances (Alexander Borodin)" for the contents of No. 17.

I speculate that many recordings linked to the Work Polovtsian Dances From Prince Igor (9a81051a) are actually performances of No. 17 only, but it is hard to tell.
