Inlanding - Reinhold M. Glière Prélude 43/1: Message Board

Inlanding's Comments

Glière had an interesting and historically significant career as a Russian musician and composer. He wrote operas, orchestral works, concertos, chamber music, ballets, preludes.

Like many piano pieces, they look easy to play, but are truly difficult to play well.

Stokowski used to do a shortened version of his huge "Ilya Muromets" symphony. One thing that always stuck in my head about Glière was that he actually wrote a concerto for coloratura soprano.
canonie 2010-08-22 19:44:52 Is the score available? You can take that as a compliment - lovely sound and playing.
heidiv 2010-08-21 20:09:42 This is a charming piece with a great flow. I've never heard of Glière before, so thank you for sharing this with us!

Sorcerer88 2010-08-20 20:38:34 not sure why, but it reminded me of modern, minimal piano music for some reason. nice piece, probably a good one to (attempt to) sight-read some time to get to know the composer, although one would probably not end up with your delicate playing!
gerg 2010-08-20 13:39:54 This reminds me of one of Fauré's Nocturnes, No. 8 in Db. I don't think this sounds "easy" because it sounds like you are having to play two-handed arps evenly while carrying a melody line.

Thank you for introducing us to Glière, and what a congenial introduction it is.
