Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory

Categories / Science. Education/Educational Institutions

RIMSKY-KORSAKOV CONSERVATORY (3 Teatralnaya Square), the oldest Russian higher school of music. The Conservatory was founded in 1861-62 by the Russian Musical Society on the initiative of A.G. Rubinstein (President of the Conservatory in 1862-67 and 1887-91) as the School of Music incorporating the earlier existing Classes of Music, founded in 1860. Rubenstein began work on establishing a music educational institution that along with the Academy of Arts would provide people of various society strata an opportunity to learn to become a freelance artist. Following the example of European conservatories, the Russian Conservatory was comprised of a secondary school and a higher educational establishment. It took a student ten years to graduate with a degree in music according to the regulations of 1887, with a six year programme in the preliminary school and four years in the higher school. The first charter of the Music School (renamed Conservatory in 1866) was approved in October 1861. The programme objective of the school was “to provide training in music in every field,” including voice, piano performance and performance on all the music instruments of the orchestra, composition, orchestration, and theory and history of music. Apart from the chosen major, the student also studied “choir singing, piano, and history and aesthetics of music". The opening of the Conservatory and the first several years of instruction were financed by private donations, revenue from charity concerts and subsidies of His Imperial Majesty's Own Chancellery, later on the expenses were covered by tuition fees and the annual government grant in the amount of 15,000 roubles. The initial teaching staff of the Conservatory included celebrated musicians: Rubinstein (piano, instrumentation, orchestra class), Polish composer and virtuoso violinist H. Wieniawski (violin, 1862-78), Polish virtuoso pianist T.Leszeticki (piano, 1862-78), Italian opera singer G. Nissen-Saloman (1862-79), Professor of Berlin Conservatory N. I. Zaremba (piano and theory of composition; President in 1867-71), violoncellist K.Y. Davydov (violoncello, history of music, chamber ensemble, choir, 1862-87, President since 1876). The first student who graduated from the Conservatory with honours was P.I. Tchaikovsky (1865). In 1867, students under the guidance of Rubinstein presented the first opera performance - Orpheus by C.W. Gluck. In the 1870s, two schools of worldwide importance became firmly established in the Conservatory: Rimsky-Korsakov school of composition (1871-1908; the school was named after him in 1944) and Auer school of violin performance (1868-1917). The outstanding pedagogues of the pre-revolutionary period included professors C.F. Everardi (singing, 1870-88), A.K. Lyadov (theory classes and composition, 1878-1914), pianist S.I. Menter (1884-87) and A.N. Esipova (1893-1914), violoncellist A.V. Verzhbilovich (1882-1911, with breaks), organist L.F. Gomilius (1874-1908), and historian of music, author of the first Russian textbook on this subject, L. A. Saccheti (1878-1916). A.K. Glazunov (President in 1905-28) was also a prominent figure in the history of the Conservatory. In the 1880s, the number of classes was increased, and the curriculum was divided into the performance emphasis, including ensemble, choir, theory of music, harmony, polyphony, theoretical and practical composition, solfeggio, score studies, conducting, history of music, theatre, musical aesthetics, opera stage production (in 1888-1915, director and singer J.I. Palecek headed this course) and the science emphasis that corresponded partially to the gymnasium curriculum. Seminars for pianists and singers were conducted regularly. Best graduates were offered a position on staff of the Conservatory. Besides Lyadov, Glazunov, Verzhbilovich and Esipova, pianists V.I. Safonov, F.M. Blumenfeld, composer M.O. Steinberg and other graduates became professors of the Conservatory. Over the first 50 years, the Conservatory graduated over 2,000 musicians; famous graduates included composers S.S. Prokofiev, N.Y. Myaskovsky, A.S. Arensky, A.T. Grechaninov, N.N. Cherepnin, M.F. Gnesin, and B.V. Asafyev. The Conservatory was turned into a free state educational institution in 1918 and remained a free-of-charge state school to this day. The Conservatory established a Music School (later - Rimsky-Korsakov Music School) in 1934, and a specialised music high school in 1936. Today the Conservatory encompasses the Faculty of History and Theory, the Faculty of Composition, the Faculty of Conducting, the Orchestra Faculty, the Piano and Organ Faculty, and the Faculty of Musical Theatre, the Graduate School (since 1923), and the Assistantship Programme (since 1968). The Conservatory manages its own Opera and Ballet Theatre (since 1923), has a unique music library and book depositories, the archival depository holding manuscripts of great musicians and a museum. After Glazunov's departure, Presidents P.A. Serebryakov (1961-77) and V.A. Chernushenko (1979-2002) made an outstanding contribution to the development of the Conservatory. S.P. Roldugin was appointed President of the Conservatory in 2003. During the Soviet epoch, the Conservatory not only preserved the traditions established in the time of Rubinstein, Rimsky-Korsakov and Glazunov, but grew significantly and discovered new areas in the field of music education. The music culture of present-day St. Petersburg can serve as conclusive evidence to this fact. The schools of St. Petersburg Conservatory including the school of composition, the school of conduction, the school of voice, and schools of violin and piano performance are among the leading schools in their respective areas in the world. The graduates and pedagogues of the Conservatory included D.D. Shostakovich, G.V. Sviridov, M.V. Yudina, V.V. Sofronitsky, I.A. Braudo, I.V. Ershov, S.P. Preobrazhenskaya, B.L. Gutnikov, M.I. Weiman, E.A. Mravinsky, and I.A. Musin. In 1862-66, the music school was housed in the wing of the Demidovs House, at the corner of Demidova Lane (today Grivtsova Lane) and Moika River Embankment (on the site of the present-day building No. 1/64), in 1866-69 - at 24 Zagorodny Avenue (now the site is occupied by the former apartment house of Merchant A.V. Dekhterinsky, № 26). In 1869-96, the Conservatory occupied a part of the building of the Ministry of Internal Affairs at 3 Teatralnaya Street (today Zodchego Rossi Street). In 1891-96, a building made according the design of architect V.V. Nicolas was constructed for the Conservatory on Teatralanaya Square, where it replaced the Kamenny (Stone) Theatre. The new building has a Grand Hall housing its Opera Theatre and Glazunov Maly Hall with the organ.
