Editor's Choice

Born and educated in the time of late Romanticism, Alexander Glazunov served as head of the St Petersburg (later Leningrad) Conservatory for many years, but after trying valiantly to reach a workable arrangement with the regime in post-Revolutionary USSR, he exiled himself in France in 1928. His life may have encompassed some seismic shifts in the world around him, but his gift for melody and technicolour orchestration remained consistent throughout. His ballet The Seasons is among his most felicitous inspirations, created in 1899 for the choreographer Marius Petipa and first performed by the Imperial Ballet in St Petersburg the following year. This classic recording is conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy.
