Program Notes

Glazunov dedicated his Fifth Symphony to Sergei Taneyev, a Russian composer, pianist, and teacher, and it was first performed at the Second Russian Concert at the Hall of the Nobility in St. Petersburg on 17 November 1896; the premiere was conducted by the composer himself. A Leipzig newspaper called the symphony "very profound" and "sparkling" and reported that the scherzo had to be reprised on opening night to the delight of the audience.

- Program Note from Wikipedia


Glazunov’s compositions include eight symphonies, three ballets, numerous chamber works, and concertos for violin, piano, and saxophone. His Symphony No. 5 was completed in 1895 and was composed in a traditional four-movement structure. In the Finale, rhythmic themes infuse the rondo form with a sense of epic heroism, providing an energetic and powerful conclusion to the work.
