The works of the Russian conductor pianist and composer Reinhold Gliere (1875-1956) were much influenced by the 19th-century Russian romantic tradition. These fascinating sketches vary considerably in style from a serene chorale-like work to an agitato piece full of chromatic detail. Most however are gentle romantic works coloured with subtle harmonic touches.
