Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev (November 25 [O.S. November 13] 1856 Ė June 19 [O.S. June 6] 1915) was a Russian composer, pianist, teacher of composition, music theorist and author.

His compositions include nine complete string quartets (plus two partially completed), a piano quintet, two string quintets and other chamber works, including a piano prelude and fugue in G-sharp minor; four symphonies (only one published during his lifetime, and at least one incomplete), a concert suite with violin and a piano concerto, and other orchestral works; an organ composition Chorale with variations; choral and vocal music. Among the choral works are two cantatas, St. John of Damascus, Op. 1 (also known as A Russian Requiem), and At the Reading of a Psalm (Op. 36, sometimes regarded as his swan song). In his choral works the composer combines the Russian melos with remarkable contrapuntal writing.
