Because one CAN be "too sane"
IMO Top 10 Lyrical Melodies (in no particular order)
1. Lyric Poem - primary theme
2. From the Middle Ages - I. Prelude, "love theme"
3. Raymonda - Hymn (main theme of whole ballet),
*honorable mention* - Raymonda Entr'actes of Act I and III
4. Symphony No. 4 - minor-keyed theme of 1st movement
5. The Seasons - Petit Adagio
6. Violin Concerto - Andante (2nd section)
There's only so little I can do more, isn't there?
I will commemorate this date with only one entreaty to all of TalkClassical and beyond.
Run free! A whole journey awaits! You only need take a step, a click, a minute. Where to begin? Anywhere
Although I do personally recommend Symphonies 4 and 5, Ballets Raymonda and the Seasons, the Lyric Poem op. 12 and the tone poem Stenka Razin op. 13, the Violin Concerto and 2 Piano

I performed a tribute to Sibelius, Nielsen and Glazunov on my program, made up of transcriptions, arrangements, etc. I recommend hearing all of them, but to hear only the Glazunov piece, skip to 8:10 ... see what I did there?
Every year, I've tried to do something special for Glazunov for his birthday August 10. One year it was a long set of blogs, another year just a bunch of videos I compiled, or going about posting his music for heck's sake. One year I listened to like 4 hours of his music in one day. I mean, just a tad more than the usual day.

Well, I've been
