  Mikhail Glinka - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mikhail Ivanovich Glinka (Михаи́л Ива́нович Гли́нка) (June 1, 1804 – February 15, 1857) was the first Russian composer to gain wide recognition inside his own country, and is often regarded as the father of Russian classical music.
Glinka's compositions were an important influence on future Russian composers, notably the members of the Mighty Handful, who took Glinka's lead and produced a distinctively Russian kind of classical music.
Glinka's The Patriotic Song, supposedly written for a contest for a national anthem in 1833, was the national anthem of the Russian Federation during 1990-2000.

Glinka's orchestral works include the symphonic poem Kamarinskaya and two overtures, Jota Aragonesa and Summer Night in Madrid, inspired by a visit to Spain.
