Constantin ANTIPOV (1859-?)

It was while looking through a microfilm of the piano scores of Blumenfeld that I came across the music of Antipov and was struck by the superb quality of his writing for the piano. In spite of my best efforts, I have been unable to find any other substantial details of his life.

He was a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakoff who in his "My Musical life", comments on the laziness of his student. I can only trace his works to Op. 13 after which there is no listing of his other compositions. He did compose a pedestrian "Allegro Symphonique" Op. 7 for orchestra, which I have recorded on CD-14, but the rest of his output was for piano. What his subsequent career was and where he died remains a mystery.
