Ilyashenko andrei

ILYASHENKO, Andrei Stepanovich (b. 1884, St. Petersburg; d. November 12, 1954, Brussels)—composer and pedagogue. After graduating from the Imperial Alexander Lyceum in St. Petersburg, he received his musical education at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, where he studied under Maximillian Steinberg, among others. He performed his military service in the elite Life Guards Dragoon Regiment, and afterwards served in the editorial department of the State Duma. He began composing before the revolution. His "Hymns from the Liturgy" for mixed choir, dedicated to the Church of Sts. Andrew and Martha in the village of Afanasevka, were published by P. Jurgenson in 1912; the same publisher issued a collection comprising eight romances.

During the First World War, he was a member of the Red Cross detachment of the active army. In 1919 is known to have been in Taganrog, then in 1922—in Chisinau, and afterwards left Russia. From 1923 he lived in Brussels, fully devoting himself to musical pursuits. He taught at the Brussels Conservatory and also for two years at the Toronto Conservatory (Canada). He wrote orchestral and choral-orchestral works in the genre of cantatas and oratorios, made arrangements of Russian folk songs and dances, and at the same time continued to compose church hymns. He also composed works for organ, ballets, and piano preludes. His works frequently appeared on programs of such symphony orchestras as the Belgian Royal Opera and National Radio, and orchestras under the batons of Leopold Stokowski in Philadelphia and Victor Kolar in Detroit. Ilyashenko died in poverty and was buried at the Jucle Cemetery in Brussels.

Ilyashenko’s sacred compositions written outside his homeland were published by Archpriest Nikolaj Vieglajs in the series “Orthodox Christian Music Library” (Berkeley, California).
