TRIBUTE TO GLAZUNOV IN HIS NATIVE ST.PETERSBURG DURING THE SOVIET PERIOD
A tribute to Alexander Glazunov who turned post-Tchaikovsky Russian musicians into true professionals. He was a composer emeritus
and helped raise the profile of classical symphonies and ballet music before and after the Mighty Handful. Mvravinsky insisted on
performing pieces by this incredibly selfless pedagogue which slip into the category of Romanticism, although he preferred the
‘banned’ compositions of his students such as the obstreperous young Stravinsky or the insufferably pretentious Prokofiev.
