'A series that will surely raise this composer's status immeasurably' (Gramophone)

Song of the Volga boatmen, Op 97
composer
originally for orchestra and chorus; transcription by Glazunov or, possibly, Siloti

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Ei ukhnem (Song of the Volga boatmen), Op 97, and In modo religioso, Op 38, are both, by contrast, slight works. Op 97 was originally scored for orchestra and chorus and it is debatable whether this arrangement is indeed by Glazunov himself. In Belaieff’s published catalogue it is clearly stated that the transcription is by Alexander Siloti (who had arranged Glazunov’s Orchestral Suite, Op 79, for solo piano) and yet the published piano reduction makes no mention of this. In modo religioso was originally written for brass quartet in 1886. This transcription was published in 1893.
