Arensky of the Russian School...

(5 out of 5 stars)
Arensky--pupil of R.-Korsakov and Tchaikowsky in Petrograd; teacher of Scriabin, Rachmaninov, and Gliére in Mosko--was a significant member of the Russian School.
Like Mussorgsky and Glazunov, Arensky had an unfortunate penchant for vodka--which probably undermined his health and led to the obscurity of his music. Nevertheless, he was a talented voice.
His Symphony No. 2 is very amusing with interesting orchestration and prescient, forward-looking accents which suggest Gershwin's use of the trumpet for klaxon in An American in Paris.
