Сочинение про знаменитых людей на английском


На английском языке. Outstanding People of Russia
The role of Russian scientists, writers, musicians, painters and other outstanding people in the development of modern world is undeniable. They have influenced almost all human spheres of life. Today everybody knows such names as Pushkin, Tolstoy, Lomonosov, Tchaikovsky, Gagarin, Tereshkova, etc. It is impossible to name a scientific branch in which the Russian scientists haven’t played a great role. For example, Dmitri Mendeleev, who was the creator of the Periodic System of Elements. Another important scientist, who made important contributions to literature, education and science, was Mikhail Lomonosov. He discovered the atmosphere of Venus and influenced the formation of Russian literary language. He was also the founder of Moscow State University. People, who love listening to radio, should know that the inventor of this device was Russian physicist Alexander Popov. Art lovers admire paintings of Repin, Surikov, Aivazovsky, Levitan, Vasnetsov, Shishkin, Roerich and many other outstanding Russian painters. World literature was largely influenced by Russian writers and poets. Perhaps the most famous names are Pushkin, Lermontov, Dostoevsky, Turgenev, Gogol, Tolstoy, Marshak, Mayakovsky. Works of these writers have been translated into many languages. One of my favourite figures is a prominent Russian composer Mikhail Glinka. He lived and created his overtures in the 19th century. Glinka is often regarded as the father of Russian classical music. His famous pieces included many piano concerts and chamber music. There are, of course, other Russian composers who deserve respect. That includes Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Modest Mussorgsky, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and others.
