Anatoly Lyadov

Russian composer Anatoly Lyadov has gone down in history as the man who had no time to compose music for The Firebird so it was passed on to Igor Stravinsky. Born 11 May 1855 in St Petersburg and died 28 August 1914 at Polynovka, Novgorod, we remember him for some delightful tone poems.
