Vasily Kalinnikov (January 13, 1866 Russia-January 11, 1901 Yalta) also known as Vasily Sergeyevich Kalinnikov was a Russian composer and conductor.

His albums include Kalinnikov: Symphony No. 1 / Glazunov: The Sea, Op. 28 / Spring, Op. 34, Symphonies No.1 and 2 (National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine feat. conductor: Theodore Kuchar), , Rachmaninov: Symphony no. 3 in A minor, op. 44 / Kalinnikov: Two Intermezzi for Orchestra, Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade / Dubinushka / The Flight of the Bumble Bee / Kalinnikov: Overture to Tsar Boris / The Cedar and the Palm, Symphony no. 2 / Overture, Tsar Boris / The Cedar and the Palm, Great Russian Symphonies and Symphony No. 1 in G Minor / Symphony No. 2 in A Major.

Although Kalinnikov's life was short, he made significant contributions to the world of classical music during the late 19th century. Born into a peasant family in the village of Voin in Russia, Kalinnikov demonstrated an early passion for music and was largely self-taught. He moved to Moscow in 1884 to pursue his musical education and studied at the Moscow Conservatory with renowned composers such as Tchaikovsky and Taneyev.

As a composer, Kalinnikov's work is characterized by rich harmonies, soaring melodies, and a distinctive Russian style. His Symphony No. 1, which premiered in 1897, was well-received and is considered to be one of his most notable works. Kalinnikov also worked as a conductor, leading orchestras in Moscow and Kiev.

Unfortunately, Kalinnikov's career was cut short by illness. He contracted tuberculosis in his early 30s and passed away just two days before his 35th birthday. Despite his short life, Kalinnikov left a lasting legacy in the world of classical music, and his work continues to be performed and celebrated by musicians today.
