Description

A lively, joyous item, ideal as a light interlude in any concert and especially appropriate for late season/Christmas themed events with its jaunty, positive sounds.  A great arrangement of Glazunov’s  ‘Autumn’ movement from his ballet, The Seasons.

Alexander Glazunov (1865 – 1936) was a Russian composer, music teacher and conductor. He was a child prodigy and was taught privately by Rimsky-Korsakov, who said Glazunov’s musical progress did not increase day by day but hour by hour.   He began composing at age eleven and wrote his first symphony at age 16 in 1881 and it was premiered one year later.

His ballet ‘The Seasons’ was first performed by the Imperial Ballet in St Petersburg on 20 February 1900 and was choreographed by Marius Petipa.  It was written in one act and four scenes, and this piece represents the moment when all The Seasons take part in a glorious dance (the well-known “Autumn Bacchanale”) while leaves from autumn trees rain upon their merriment.
