Alexander Tikhonovich Gretchaninoff
(Gretchaninov, Grechaninov) (1864–1956), a contemporary of Sergei Rachmaninoff,
was born in Kaluga, Russia. He began music study at the Moscow Conservatory in 1881 in spite of being expected to take over the
family business. After study there with Taneyev and Arensky, he moved to St Petersburg, where he studied composition and orchestration
with Rimsky-Korsakov. He moved to France in 1925 and to the United States in 1939, where he lived until his death in New York City.
His compositions include five symphonies, operas, chamber, piano, and choral music. Three Pieces
, Opus 159a,
composed in 1939, are the only solo organ works by Gretchaninoff. The opus is shared with the Concerto for Flute, Harp, and Strings,
Opus 159b, from 1938, composed while in Paris.
