Glazunov was seventy-one years of age when he died in 1936. He was, therefore, a young man at the time that the great circle of Russian composers, led by Rimsky-Korsakov, were at the height of their powers. In the 'eighties he was the rising hope of the nationalists ; in the 'nineties he came under the influence of Brahms and other Western composers. After the war of 1914-18 he played a large part in the reorganisation of the Leningrad Conservatoire.

The Seasons was Haydn's last work of any importance, but one may dismiss from the mind at once the knowledge that it is the composition of an old man approaching seventy years. There are no traces of decadence ; the mind is alert and the skill as great as ever, while the ideas are fresh and there is a never-ending fertility of invention.
The poem, which is a German adaptation of Thomson's ' The Seasons', ', deals with the varying aspects of country life during the seasons of the year, and whatever its demerits as poetry it at least offers admirable opportunities for musical illustrations.
Conductor, Drake Rimmer
