Biography
Anatol [Anatoly] Konstantinovich Lyadov [Liadov]

(Born; St Petersburg, 11 May 1855; Died; Polīnovka, 28 Aug 1914). Russian composer and teacher. A pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov at the St Petersburg Conservatory, he showed promise and developed a lasting interest in counterpoint; from 1878 he taught at the conservatory (Prokofiev and Myaskovsky were among his pupils), also making appearances as a conductor. In the 1870s he was associated with 'The Five', and in the 1880s with the Belyayev circle. Many of his pieces are based on pre-existing motifs (folksongs, other composers' themes, a cantus firmus) or rely on a programme, revealing his sense of orchestral colour and gift for musical characterization (notably in the orchestral works Baba-Yaga, ?1891-1904, and Kikimora, 1909); later works, including the symphonic poem Skorbnaya pesn (1914), experiment with extended tonality. A series of charming piano miniatures is still in the repertory. Procrastination, indolence and self-doubt prevented him from completing a work of any size or scope.
