The Russian composer Alexander Glazunov was somewhat born out of the right time. He began writing late Romantic music when the music work was spinning into modernism. His beautifully crafted works seemed old fashioned in the early 20th century, but they have worn well.

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will play some of this most famous compositions.
