Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Alexander Konstantinovich Glazunov (1865 - 1936) was a Russian composer, conductor, and public personality. In his works, Glazunov developed the traditions established by the composers of The Five, as well as the aesthetic principles of Pyotr Tchaikovsky, thus combining the two foundations of the Russian music - lyric drama and lyric epic. Symphonic compositions of various genres, from miniatures to symphonies, are the core of Glazunov's musical legacy. This program features such symphonic fantasias as The Forest and The Sea, performed by the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra conducted by the celebrated Evgeny Svetlanov.
