Alexander Glazunov Rare Signature of Russian Composer 1929
Rare signed card by Russian composer Alexander Konstantinovich Glazunov (1865-1936), he was a composer of the late Russian Romantic period, music teacher and conductor. He served as director of the St Petersburg conservatory between 1905 and 1928. That same year he toured Europe and the United States, and ended up settling in Paris by 1929. He always claimed that the reason for his continued absence from Russia was "ill health"; this enabled him to remain a respected composer in the Soviet Union. His best known student under his tenure during the early Soviet years was Dmitri Shostakovich. Signed in ink "Alexandre Glazounov" the recipient has inscribed on the back that it was given to him Sascha Lasserson on the 15th June 1929, shortly after arriving in Paris.
