Alexander Glazunov in 1907

It has been observed that music in 19th century Russia generally expressed the context of its time. This was true for Alexander Glazunov’s first three symphonies which were nationalist but not for his 4th which he described as “personal, free and subjective impressions of myself”. Glazunov’s Symphony No. 4 is today’s noon masterpiece at 2:00 p.m.
