Alexander Glazunov composed his Piano Concerto No. 1 in F minor, Opus, 92, in 1911, during his tenure as director of the St. Petersburg Conservatory. The concerto is dedicated to Leopold Godowsky, whom Glazunov had heard on tour in St. Petersburg in 1905.


The concerto is written in two movements, the second being a theme and variations forming an amalgam of slow movement, scherzando elements and finale (coda).[1]

  1. Allegro moderato
  2. Tema con variazoni
    1. Tema (Andante tranquilo)
    2. Variation I
    3. Variation II (chromatica) Andantino
    4. Variation III (Eroica) Allegro moderato)
    5. Variation IV (lyrica) Adagio
    6. Variation V (Intermezzo) Allegro
    7. Variation VI (quasi una fantasia) Lento
    8. Variation VII Mazurka: Allegretto
    9. Variation VIII Scherzo: Allegro ma non troppo
    10. Variation IX Finale: Allegro moderato
