Mainly known for his symphonic works, especially the popular symphonic suite Sheherazade, as well as the Capriccio Espagnol and the Russian Easter Festival Overture, Rimsky-Korsakov left an oeuvre that also included operas, chamber works, and songs. Rimsky-Korsakov's music is accessible and engaging owing to his talent for tone-coloring and brilliant orchestration. Furthermore, his operas are masterful musical evocations of myths and legends.

Born in 1844, Rimsky-Korsakov studied the piano as a child but chose a naval career, entering the College of Naval Cadets in St. Petersburg in 1856. However, he continued with piano lessons; in fact, in 1859, Rimsky-Korsakov started working with the French pianist Theodore Canille, through whom he met Balakirev, an important mentor and friend.

Rimsky-Korsakov was appointed professor of composition and orchestration at the St. Petersburg Conservatory in 1871. The following year, he married Nadezhda Purgold, a pianist. In 1873, Rimsky-Korsakov left active duty, becoming inspector of navy orchestras, a job which he held until 1884.

Setting a poem by Pushkin, Na kholmakh Gruzii is the fourth song in Rimsky-Korsakov's second published set of songs from 1866. Like Vostochnïy romans from the same year, Na kholmakh Gruzii is deeply indebted to the Russian-imagined Oriental East, a land of langorously chromatic melodies, voplutously modal harmonies, and despairingly slow tempos. While not as sensually decadent as Vostochnïy romans, Na kholmakh Gruzii is as morbidly decadent as any song Mussorgsky ever wrote.

Although this piece was originally written for acompanied (piano) voice, I created this arrangement for Solo Concert (Pedal) Harp to accentuate the haunting tones.
