Well, I noticed that no-one's said anything about Glazunow yet. So, since he's one of my favourites, I decided to make a thread to discuss his works.
My personal favourite is his Barcarolle Op. 22 No. 1. It's such a beautiful song, full of beautiful harmonies, and nice useage of arpeggiated chords. And such a nice use of rythym and tone to bring out a deep joyful feeling.
My second favourite is his Prelude and Fugue Op. 62, which is so simple and yet complex, and has a nice sort of dark atmosphere about it.

"Art is not an end in itself, but a means of addressing humanity."
"Music is an outburst of the soul."
