Liadov, Konstantin (Nikolaievich)

Liadov, Konstantin (Nikolaievich), Russian conductor, father of Anatoli (Konstantinovich) Liadov; b. St. Petersburg, May 10, 1820; d. there, Dec. 19, 1868. He studied at the St. Petersburg Theatrical School, and in 1850 became conductor of the St. Petersburg Imperial Opera. He resigned shortly before his death, and was succeeded by Napravnik. Liadov was an efficient drillmaster, and did much to raise the standard of performance. He premiered several Russian operas, and was instrumental in encouraging Russian music. He was also greatly appreciated by his co-workers, and Glinka often sought his advice on details of production of his operas.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
