Nikolai Tcherepnin (1873 - 1945)

Nikolai Nikolayevich Tcherepnin was born in St Petersburg in 1873. He was a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov at the Conservatory, where he completed his studies in 1898, thereafter working as a teacher and conductor, in the latter capacity at the Mariinsky Theatre and notably in Paris. There, in 1908, he superintended the first performance in Paris of Rimsky-Korsakov's Golden Cockerel and the following year conducted the first of Dyagilev's Ballets Russes seasons. He conducted again in the Ballets Russes seasons of 1911 and 1912. In 1918 he became director of the Conservatory of Tblisi in Georgia, where he conducted the opera. Three years later he moved to Paris, where he settled for the rest of his life. Here he provided music for Pavlova and completed Mussorgsky’s Sorochintsy Fair for performance in Monte-Carlo. His own operas Swat, after Ostrovsky, and Vanka followed in 1930 and 1932 respectively. In style Tcherepnin follows the tradition of Rimsky-Korsakov, in a generally conservative musical language, which is colourful and attractive, Russian tinged with French, lacking the astringency of a Stravinsky.
