Meditation in D major, Op 32
EnglishFranÁaisDeutsch
Glazunov’s Meditation in D major, Op 32, for violin and piano or orchestra was composed in 1891, apparently as a simple lyric piece for salon or concert hall. It was a popular recital and encore piece in the early twentieth century and exists in several arrangements apart from Glazunov’s own: the British composer John Foulds, for example, made a version for violin and chamber orchestra. The piece is a tranquil and very beautiful melodic outpouring, based throughout on the romantic theme heard at the outset, and using the entire range of the violin while being accompanied with exquisite harmonic restraint.
