Alexander Glazunov
(1865 - 1936)

Serenade op. 7   


This work is the first of two Serenades that Glazunov composed in a two- year period between his 18th and 19th year.  These two Serenades are single-movement works, slight in nature and filled with charm and elegance.  The op. 7 Serenade was premiered in 1885 under the baton of the leader of “The Mighty Handful”, Balakirev.
