 Update me on new releases by Arensky

Anton Stepanovich Arensky (7/12/1861 - 2/25/1906)

The Russian composer, conductor and pianist Anton Arensky was a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov at St Petersburg Conservatory and later taught at the Conservatory in Moscow, where his pupils included Rachmaninov and Scriabin. His compositions often reflect the influence of other composers, more particularly that of Tchaikovsky. He was musical director of the Imperial Chapel in St Petersburg from 1895 until 1901, and thereafter he continued his career as composer, pianist and conductor, travelling widely in the last two capacities.

Orchestral Music

Arensky wrote two symphonies and a violin concerto, as well as a set of variations for strings on a theme by Tchaikovsky, a work originally for string quartet. His first orchestral suite has been supplemented by orchestrated versions of two suites originally for two pianos.

Chamber and Instrumental Music

The best known of Arensky’s compositions is his Piano Trio in D minor, the first of two such works. This was written in 1894 and shows something of the influence of Mendelssohn. His five suites, either for two pianos or piano duet, include Silhouettes—a set of five character pieces (Suite No. 2)—and the Children’s Suite (Suite No. 5).
