Anatoly Konstantinovich Lyadov or (May 11 1855 – August 28 1914) was a Russian composer, teacher and conductor. 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.
Many of his works are variations on or arrangements of pre-existing material. He did compose a large number of piano miniatures, of which his Musical Snuffbox of 1893 is perhaps most famous. Novellette in A minor for piano, Op. 20 (1882–1889) is another good example and is available here for your purchasing pleasure.
