About the Artist

Ippolitov-Ivanov's was a Russian composer, conductor and teacher. His works include operas, orchestral music, chamber music and a large number of songs. His style is similar to that of his teacher Rimsky-Korsakov. With the exception of his orchestral suite Caucasian Sketches (KavkazskiyeEskizi, 1894), which includes the much-excerpted "Procession of the Sardar", his music is rarely heard today.
