Glazunov, Aleksandr

Aleksandr Konstantinovich Glazunov (1865-1936). Rimsky-Korsakov’s most exceptional student (his musical memory was such that he wrote down the missing overture to Borodin’s Prince Igor having heard the composer play it only once), Aleksandr Glazunov was among the most celebrated members of the “Belyayev circle.” Director of the St. Petersburg Conservatory for twenty-five years, Glazunov maintained an active composing schedule despite his many other activities. He and his family were stricken by poverty after the communist revolution; eventually moving to Paris, Glazunov met with success as a conductor of his own works – usually with his adopted daughter Elena as piano soloist.
