This final volume in Nicholas Walker’s much-admired survey of the complete solo piano music of Balakirev includes the composer’s famous work for piano, Islamey, an exotic and ultra-virtuoso oriental tale. Also featured are previously unpublished and unrecorded miniatures – pieces that are both poetic and, in the case of the Elegy on the Death of a Mosquito, witty. Transcriptions of Glinka are included, and Walker has arranged Balakirev’s passionate and sensual symphonic poem Tamara for solo piano, recreating textures redolent of the composer’s own piano style. He also plays Au Jardin, an Idyll-Étude of rapt beauty and tenderness.

    So the journey ends. A project that began back in 1994 has finally reached its conclusion with this sixth volume...Walker’s dedication to the cause and determination to see it through demands both our admiration and respect. It is a tremendous achievement – and the final tranche is no less full of pianistic goodies than its predecessors.
