Glazunov was seventy-one years of age when he died in 1936. He was, therefore, a young man at the time that the members of that great circle of Russian composers, led by Rimsky-Korsakov, were at the height of their powers. As a composer Glazunov was prolific : his published orchestral works include eight symphonies, several concertos, and numerous slighter works.
The Symphony No. 1 was written when he was a boy of sixteen and first performed m March 1882 at a concert of the Free School of Music, with Balakirev conducting. Its success was immediate: both during the rehearsals and on the day of the performance the young composer was presented with a laurel wreath
