Alexander Alyabyev

a.k.a. Alexander Alexandrovich Alyabyev

Author Code: RAAA

Born: Aug. 15, 1787 - Tobolsk, Russia

Died: Mar. 6, 1851 - Moscow, Russia

The son of the governor of Tobolsk, Alyabyev was well-educated and became interested in music through the family's patronage of the arts. He volunteered for military service during the Napoleonic war of 1812 and remained in service until his retirement as a sub-colonel in 1823. Thereafter, he moved to Moscow and began to compose. He was involved in an altercation in a card game which resulted in the death of a man. During his incarceration that followed, he composed A Nightengale, undoubtedly his best work. He was subsequently exiled to Siberia and did not return to Moscow until 1843. Alyabyev wrote seven operas and over 200 romances and songs, works for piano and twenty musical comedies.
