About the Composer
Reinhold Moritzevich Glière (11 January 1875 [30 December 1874]  – 23 June 1956) was a Ukrainian-born Soviet composer of German–Polish descent. Glière was the second son of the wind instrument maker Ernst Moritz Glier (1834–1896) from Saxony, who emigrated to Kiev and married Józefa (Josephine) Korczak (1849–1935), the daughter of his master, from Warsaw, Poland. His original name, as given in his baptism certificate, was Reinhold Ernst Glier. About 1900 he changed the spelling and pronunciation of his surname to Glière, which gave rise to the legend, stated by Leonid Sabaneyev for the first time (1927), of his French or Belgian descent.
