Anatoly Nikolayevich Alexandrov
Anatoly Nikolayevich Alexandrov (born 13 May (O.S.), 1888 in Moscow; died April 16, 1982) was a Russian composer of works for piano and for other instruments, and pianist. His initial works had a mystical element, but he downplayed this to better fit Socialist realism. He led a somewhat retiring life, but received several honors.
Alexandrov was the son of a Professor of Tomsk University. He attended the Moscow Conservatory (which he left in 1915), where he was a pupil of Nikolay Zhilyayev, S.I. Taneief and Sergey Vasilenko (theory), and Konstantin Igumnov (pianoforte). His early music revealed the influence of Nikolai Medtner and Alexander Scriabin. He was appointed Professor at the Moscow Conservatory in 1923.
