Mikhail Glinka was the first Russian composer to be known worldwide and the Russian Nationalist school's famed founder. Glinka has been described as a brilliant dilettante. His slender development is known as the base of most later Russian music of note. From the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 until 2000, his composition 'The Patriotic Poem' was the Russian national anthem. Ruslan and Lyudmila produced lyrical melody models and vibrant orchestration in which their styles were developed by Mily Balakirev, Aleksandr Borodin, and Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky said Glinka's orchestral composition Kamarinskaya (1848) was the acorn from which the oak of later Russian symphonic music developed.
