Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Founder of the group of Russian composers called 'The Mighty Handful', Mily Balakirev is known for having helped create a distinctive Russian school of music that was not reliant on the influence of the Austro German school. On these 6 CDs his entire output for piano can be found. A superb pianist, he produced one of the most taxing works ever written for the instrument, his Oriental Fantasy Islamey.
