Alexander Glazunov was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. From his young age, it was obvious that owing to his excellent ear and impressive musical memory, Glazunov had great musical talent. He started composing at age 11, and was trained as a private student by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, with Rimsky- Korsakov commenting that his ‘development progressed not by the day, but literally by the hour’. In 1884, while on a visit to Weimer with a rich wooden dealer and amateur musician, Mitrofan Belyayev, Glazunov's First Symphony was performed.
