LIADOV, Anatol
b St Petersburg, 11 May 1855
d Polinovka, Novgorod, 28 August 1914, aged fifty-nine

He first studied with his father, who was the conductor at the Mariinsky Theatre. In 1870 he entered the St Petersburg Conservatory and attended Rimsky-Korsakov's composition classes. In 1878 he became a teacher of elementary theory at the Conservatory, of advanced counterpoint in 1901, and of composition in 1906. His marriage in 1884 brought him financial independence. He was a very indolent man, which accounted for his comparatively small output. He made numerous appearances as a conductor, and collected and published several volumes of folk-song arrangements.
