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 Group of Five. Mravinsky 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 'obstreporous' young Stravinsky or the 'insufferably pretentious' Prokofiev.

Recorded March 1948 (Symphony no.4), September 1968 (Symphony no.5), September 1969 (The Seasons)
