Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Although The Seasons has had admirers over the years, the set as a whole has never attained wide popularity. Nonetheless, the graceful "Barcarolle" (June) and the evocative, jingly "In the Troika" (November) are viewed as masterpieces. Mily Balakirev's "oriental fantasy" Islamey, a most difficult work, suits Yefim Bronfman's virtuosity to a T.
