Alexander Glazunov (1865 – 1936) was a Russian composer, music teacher, and conductor of the late Russian Romantic period.
In 1899 Glazunov composed the music for the ballet ‘The Seasons’. It’s is an allegorical ballet in one act, four scenes, by the choreographer Marius Petipa. The work was first performed by the ‘Imperial Ballet’ in 1900 in St. Petersburg and has become one of Glazunov’s best compositions. ‘L’Automne’ is the fourth scene (tableau) of the ballet also known as the ‘Autumn Bacchanale’ (Grande bacchanale des Saisons).
