plays Glazunov's Piano Concerto in F minor, with the BBC Northern Orchestra: conductor, Charles Groves
Like several other of Russia's most distinguished composers, Glazunov, who died in 1936 had a curious career. In the 'eighties, as a young. man, he was the rising hope of the nationalists; in the 'nineties he came under the influence of Brahms and other Western composers. Until about 1904 he composed prolificacy; after that, during the remaining thirty-two years of his life, he produced only a few comparatively unimportant works. This Piano Concerto, finished in 1911 and dedicated to Leopold Godowsky , was his last important work. It is in two movements, the second consisting of a theme and nine variations, a form of which Glazunov was a master.
