A highly decorated composer in Soviet Russia, Reinhold Glière maintained a low political profile and a conservative but astonishingly inventive melodic style. His interest in national harmonies and folk-music emerges in the Twelve Album Leaves
, and his remarkably important contribution to cello repertoire is demonstrated both in his mastery of small forms in the Duets Op. 39
, and a unique ability to create orchestral sonorities in the Duets Op. 53
, a rare example of an original cycle for the delightful combination of two cellos.
