You got the Glier thing backwards. R.M. Glier (Gliere) was from the German Glier family. They have been violin makers in Klingenthal for nearly 500 years. His father moved to Moscow and married a woman there. As was the custom at the time, his birth was recorded in the Cyrillic equivalent of GLIER and in French. Later in life he found it politically comfortable to accept "adoption" by multiple ethnic groups including Jewish, Polish, Belgian and Ajerbijani. It also seemed wise not to make apoint of his German ancestry. This site will make it clear
Good luck.
