Hi,

For anyone who might be interested, using different sources I was able to construct a listing of Glazunov's piano literature. I cannot guarantee that it's complete, but I believe that if not, then it's very close to it. It's a relatively thin repertoire as compared to the output of many other composers of piano music, but remember that Glazunov's primary interest was orchestral music. Here is the list:

ALEKSANDR GLAZUNOV SOLO PIANO PIECES

Suite on the Name Sascha, Op. 2
Two Pieces for Piano, Op. 22
Waltz on the Name Sabela, Op. 23
Prelude and Two Mazurkas, Op. 25
Gavotte, Op. 29, No. 3
Three Concert Etudes, Op. 31
Petite Valse, Op. 36
Nocturne pour Piano, Op. 37
Grand valse de concert, Op. 41
Three Miniatures, Op. 42
Salon Waltz, Op. 43
Three Pieces for Piano, Op. 49
Two Impromptus, Op. 54
Prelude and Fugue, Op. 62
Theme and Variations, Op. 72
Piano Sonata No. 1, Op. 74
Piano Sonata No. 2, Op. 75
Four Preludes and Fugues, op. 101
Idylle, Op. 103
Four Improvisations
Miniature
Little Gavotte
Menuet pour Piano

David

Thank you for this, David. Maybe one day I'll try some of these. Like maybe the mazurkas. I'm interested in hearing and comparing mazurkas from various composers. Some have similar qualities as Chopin's but others are much different! But then again, all of Chopin's own mazurkas are greatly different from one another too! Oh well, guess you can add a 3/4 time signature to anything and call it a mazurka.

Hi Monica,

I'll bet you'd love those mazurkas. :wink: You heard the sound I got from that prelude, so I would bet the mazurkas are high quality too. If you do them, I hope you'll post them here so we can all hear them. Plus it will add to Glazunov's recordings. I just wish he had spent more time on the piano genre.

David

Hi again, David.
Ok, I just printed off the two Mazurkas. I can't wait to get home from work so I can try them out! :)

Hi Monica,

Yea!! I think that mazurkas are a special interest of yours the same way that I love to play preludes. By the way, I seem to recall that there is another mazurka tucked into Op. 49 too. Have fun with those!

David

Nice. I guess searching for such piano literature for one artist would take an ample amount of time, kudos bud. And hopefully I can get myself to play, even just one piece, someday.

I fell in love with Glazunov's Seasons back in the winter, and his other works years ago. All I can say is "holy moley... thank you!"
