Alexander Glazunov

A Russian composer, director and teacher, born in 1865 at St. Petersburg, Alexander Glazunov was well-known for his conservative, classic compositions. He first studied music with Balakirev, and later with Rimsky-Korsakov. They both influenced and promoted his first successful symphony, Op.5, 1881, which he composed at age 16.
