Anatoly Konstantinovich Lyadov (1855-1914).

The (Prelude in B minor) Three Pieces for piano, Op.11 were composed in 1885 & published the next year. It has been argued that Lyadov never completed a large-scale work. However, many of his miniatures have their place in the piano repertoire.

While Lyadov’s technical facility was highly regarded by his contemporaries, his unreliability stood in the way of his advancement. His published compositions are relatively few in number through his natural indolence and a certain self-critical lack of confidence.

Prokofiev recalled that even the most innocent musical innovations drove the conservative Lyadov crazy. “Shoving his hands in his pockets and rocking in his soft woollen shoes without heels, he would say, “I don’t understand why you are studying with me. Go to Richard Strauss. Go to Debussy.” This was said in a tone that meant ‘Go to the devil!’.
