Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    78:41
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 ultravirtuoso 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 Also featured are previously unpublished and unrecorded miniatures—pieces that are both poetic and, in the case of the "Elegy on the Death of a Mosquito", witty.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.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
