Notes & Reviews:

Melodiya presents some rarely performed ballet gems by Alexander Glazunov! A pupil of Balakirev and Rimsky-Korsakov, and musical heir to The Five, Glazunov was also a careful student of Tchaikovsky's works (the composer also appreciated his young colleague's aptitude), and his ballet music continued the tradition of Tchaikovsky's "symphonic ballets." The Seasons was ordered by Ivan Vsevolozhsky, director of the Imperial Theatres, and was completed in 1900 to be choreographed by Marius Petipa at St. Petersburg's Hermitage Theatre. The suite Chopiniana, an orchestration of diverse pieces by Chopin, was composed in 1892. Sharing the love of many Russian composers for Chopin's music, Glazunov displayed a magnificent sense of style and orchestral skills.
