By 1861 the 17-year-old was becoming increasingly engrossed in musical studies and exploring the concert repertoire as well as opera. This same year he was introduced by his tutor to Balakirev, then aged 24 and already the leader of a group of young composers, including César Cui, Mussorgsky and Alexander Borodin . It was Balakirev who awoke in Rimsky-Korsakoff the ambition to become a composer, approving of his tentative sketches for a symphony and demanding that he complete it; even Nicolai's posting abroad (1862-65) did not dampen his ardor; he took the unfinished manuscript with him on his tour of duty. On his return to St. Petersburg he completed his symphony in time for its successful premiere under Balakirev's baton in 1865. Subsequent performances in 1866 confirmed his burgeoning reputation.
