Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The influence of Wagnerian orchestration, particularly his writing for brass, had a definite impact on Glazunov's style. The Symphony No. 4 displays Glazunov's keen awareness for the importance of texture: he darkens and lightens his colors, produces the most delicately scored passages, and follows them with robust tuttis full of contrapuntal richness. Valeri Polyansky and his Russian State Symphony provide superlative performances.
