Vladimir Tsybin, ALLEGRO CONCERTANTE No.1

from the CD “Easterly Winds”

 

Tsybin studied flute and composition at the Moscow Conservatory under, amongst others, Glazunov and Liadov. He was solo flute at both Bolshoi and Mariinsky Theaters and taught at the St.Petersburg and Moscow Conservatories. He was often referred to as the “Russian Andersen”, on a par with Denmark’s Joachim Andersen, who was to become solo flute of the Berlin Philharmonic and was also a prolific composer for the instrument.

The ALLEGRO CONCERTANTE No.1 in A minor, similarly to Nos.2 and 3, was composed in 1946. Tsybin was, at this time, already retired from concert activity but continued teaching at the Moscow Conservatory.
These works were composed with teaching in mind, in the same manner as those works composed by Andersen and Boehm. They have remained as mandatory repertoire in the Leningrad and Moscow Conservatories for over 50 years. However, outside Russia, they are almost unknown.
