Mikhail Glinka

a.k.a. Mikhail Ivanovich Glinka

Author Code: RMIG

Born: Jun. 1, 1804 - Novospasskoye, Russia

Died: Feb. 15, 1857 - Berlin, Germany

The son of a wealthy family, Glinka's early days were spent in village life where he acquired his knowledge and love of peasant music. He began to take music lessons when he was ten and went on to study in St. Petersburg where he also began to compose. After he left school, he worked for the Department of Public Highways until 1830. He then traveled in Europe before studying in Milan at the Conservatory there. He stayed for a time in Berlin and returned to Russia on his father's death in 1834. In 1836, he produced his first opera, A Life for the Tsar, which was a great success. The following year, Glinka became the instructor of the Imperial Chapel Choir and achieved great wealth under the auspices of the Tsar. His second opera, Ruslan and Lyudmila, appeared in 1842, but did not achieve the same success as his first. He then traveled again in Europe, spending time in Paris, Madrid and Berlin, where he finally settled in 1854. In addition to his two operas, Glinka composed many pieces for piano, chamber music, songs and orchestral works. Today, he is regarded as the father of Russian classical music and his influence on future Russian composers was profound.
