    I finally made a Glazunov recommendations playlist! A starter guide, if you will. As curator, I give my thumb's up on everything on this list:

    I found this biography recently online as a PDF and there are a ton of interesting pictures/photos! I really do discover new things all the time, even 10 years later. I plan to slowly read through it with Google Translate, one page at a time. I may do a report on it eventually, just as I will for the recent biography by John Tait.

    That's quite a list, and it looks like it was a labor of love.

    I've just stumbled upon the Symphony No. 3 (Serebrier, Royal Scottish NO), a very salutary reacquainting. The Russian nostalgia is present throughout the work, and a sense of uplifting humour contrasts to give us a remarkable work of substantial merit, a fairly impressive work with Slavic roots, influenced by the composer whom was dedicated, Tchaikovsky.

    Wow, thank you so much for sharing that, Orfeo! I love seeing videos of live performances. They make me happy.


    I was so busy today I haven't had a chance to post til now. Glazunov's birthday today, I will celebrate with the usual. However, it is the 10th time I've celebrated his birthday too, so I feel I ought to be doing something special.

    How about a compilation of some new discoveries I made recently?

    You bet. I was pleasantly surprised myself, so well the performance went (and I am glad to see that Glazunov is getting greater exposure in Asia (esp. Japan).

    I like the compilations and will explore further. Thank you for sharing these (and for everything). You are doing this very fine composer proud.

    I got some updates about this actually....

    So, a lady recently found my blog and posts here on talkclassical and contacted me directly. She has connections to the president of the Glazunov Foundation in Munich, and she was going to forward my name to him very soon, within a month or 2 I hope. And when that happens, I'm going to have one of the most valuable musicological connections I've ever had to Glazunov. This guy knows really a lot. He may not speak English very well, but we'll see. The lady is a leader of some other musicological organizations to do with soviet artists. Things are actually happening for me! That's what's so nuts about this.

    My friend rodders has uploaded a bunch of Glazunov this past week before his birthday, so here's one happy upload, Svetlanov's performance of Raymonda (see all the acts on his channel). Here is first part:



    Best performance of Raymonda ever imho.

    Nice! That development sounds promising. Please keep us up to date on this.
    Svetlanov's recording of Raymonda remains a wonderful classic in its own right, and has yet to be bettered despite the rather dated recorded sound. Gergiev may do it down the road? Who knows?

    But anyway, Glazunov is getting his dues, and rightly so.

    This is a really special album that was uploaded to YouTube earlier this year. There's nothing like hearing a recording made by a direct connection to any composer. Elena Glazunov, the adopted daughter who took on his name, had such a lucky connection. She knew exactly how to interpret him.

    Enjoy these selected piano works she recorded!

    Interesting, and rare material. I have an old Telefunken LP where she plays the two piano concertos, but it must be said that there are better versions out there. Judging from hearing a few samples, there´s plenty of lyricism in her solo recordings, however.

    Sometimes I just rummage on the internet and I find things... things I've not seen before, or haven't seen in ages and rediscovered their locations...






    That's his wife Olga next to him. Pictures of him in America are very rare!
