The Maecenas of Russian music during the 'eighties and 'nineties of the last century was M. P. Belaiev , a wealthy timber-merchant. Attracted by the youthful Glazunov's early compositions, he not only had them printed at his expense, but engaged an orchestra to give a special Glazunov concert. Encouraged by the success of these ventures, Belaiev founded the great publishing house which bears his
1 name and endowed the ' Russian Symphony Concerts' (an enterprise unhappily terminated in 1914 and never resumed). Both publishing house and concerts were musically directed by Rimsky-Korsakov and Glazunov, and were run without regard for financial profit.
It was also Belaiev's custom to have chamber music meetings (with lashings of champagne) at his private house every Friday evening. Not only classics but the manuscript works of young composers were played. The collection of short quartet pieces by various composers Les Vendredis (' Fridays ') is a pleasant souvenir of these weekly gatherings.

Elgar's six Pomp and Circumstance '
Marches are prefaced with some lines from a poem, ' The March of Glory ', by the late Lord de Tabley, which opens :
' Like a proud music that draws men to die
Madly upon the spears in martial ecstasy.
A measure that set heaven in all their veins
And iron in their hands.'
Ernest Newman tells us that
Elgar's idea was to treat the soldiers' march symphonically-to blend the practical and the artistic in one by making the March in every way adapted for marching purposes, while not sacrificing any of the qualities required for performance in the concert room '.. (Soloist, W. C. CROZIER> )
