Nikolay Sidelnikov

Nikolay Sidelnikov graduated from the Moscow State Conservatory in 1954, having studied composition with E.O.Messnera and J.A.Shaporina. From 1961 until his death in 1992, Sidelnikov was a professor of composition at the Moscow Conservatory, where his students included a number who later achieved considerable acclaim, including Edward Artemev (the "father" of electronic music in the USSR.)

Sidelnikov was a prolific composer, penning three operas, six symphonies, three oratorios, and a great number of choral and chamber works. Among his early successes was Russian Fairytales (featured here in the Classical Archives), which won honors at the UNESCO Composers' Tribune in Paris. His works have been performed throughout Europe, as well as in Beijing and New York—with two major premiers at Merkin Hall (including a chamber symphony commissioned and performed by Mstislav Rostropovich). Among the many tributes paid to Sidelnikov is the Fantasia in Memory of Nikolai Sidelnikov by organist and composer Kirill Umansky (likewise featured here at the Classical Archives.)
