GLAZOUNOV (bom 1865) is probably the most distinguished living Russian composer who does not work on very advanced ' modernist ' lines.
He is a master of orchestral effect, and in his ballets and other light pieces he has produced music that follows very agreeably, yet with distinct individuality of its own, in the Tchaikovsky tradition.
The Seasons, a Suite of orchestral pieces, was originally written for a Ballet. We do not often hear so full a selection of the music as this. We are to have first the Theme and Variations belonging to Winter, the Variations being respectively entitled Hoar-Frost, lee, Hail, and Snow. Then comes Spring ; Summer has three sections- Waltz of Poppies and Cornflowers, Barcarolle and Variation : lastly, Autumn has a Bacchanal and a little Slow Movement.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
