  1. Glazunov 150th Birthday Celebrations: Part Four

    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.

    GO!

    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

    My Project is complete!!

    This may or may not be my last installment in blogs regarding here-said title, so for now, I will say that this is the most important!

  3. Glazunov 150th Birthday Celebrations: Part Two

    Hello again! Getting pumped yet?? I know I am!! August 10, mark the date!! But honestly, the whole month of August is a celebration, and now too.

    This year I graduated from my university, and had to do a Senior Recital as one of my last undergraduate requirements. 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?

    Well, I've been

  5. Glazunov’s Symphony No. 4: The Bridge Worth Crossing (Part 2)

    At face value, this symphony already poses some interesting features. The Fourth Symphony only has three movements: two relatively long and complex outer movements and a Scherzo in between. While none of the movements use Sonata form, Glazunov creates his own modified versions of theme and variation and sonata-rondo.
