Notes & Reviews:

This third volume of Balakirev's complete piano music centers on the sequence of seven Mazurkas, infectiously lively pieces full of Slavic atmosphere and color. The Humoresque in D major reveals his virtuosic flair whilst the Dumka in E flat minor uses improvisational elements to evoke the Russian landscape and the timelessness of village life. The Sonatina in G major was Balakirev's last completed work and a joyous finale to a richly creative life. Reviewing Volume 2 (GP713), American Record Guide predicted that Walker's series would become "the reference set for Balakirev".
