Description:

Balakirev (1837-1910) was one of the Russian Five. When you think of his piano music, the first thing that comes to mind is "Islamey - Fantasy in the Oriental Style". Despite his diverse activities as a pioneer and organizer of the spread of Russian music, Balakirev himself was suspicious of his own compositions and retired from the music world for a time (he worked as a clerk for the Warsaw Railways), and his life was full of twists and turns and setbacks. He left behind a surprisingly small number of works. Looking closely at the three sonatas recorded here, we can understand his hesitation. In fact, these sonatas were first written in 1855 as Op. 3, and the following year, he revised it to Op. 5. However, about 50 years later, he made one more change and completed the sonatas.The 1905 sonata is quite original, starting with a fugue in the first movement. The sonata of 1905 is quite original, starting with a fugue in the first movement, and is also highly accomplished, with a hint of Schumann, Brahms, and Chopin. Naxos Japan
