@mikey what do you make of Balakirev’s Lark?

Love it. I remember my teacher saying Balakirev is definitely an interesting composer which at first made me reassess Islamey. Then few weeks ago started going through other stuff but haven’t continued coz been busy. Want to get to the Sonata, apparently Kentner is a very good rec.

But yeh, the Lark is mostly very pianistic. The opening 2 pages while looking the easiest I think are the hardest ala chop 4th Ballade first few pages - balancing/voicing/controlling the LH. Good piece to have in the rep I think, a sort of Chopinesque Russian melancholy with a bit of Lisztian glamour.


That describes it pretty well…it’s very popular here in Japan, heard it many times.

I’ve actually never looked at it, but I like it too. Encouraging to hear it’s pianistic, although I’m really not sure I’d be able to make it sound good myself with all those rapid RH passages. They’re right on top of the melody too.

There are some really cool non-Islamey/lark pieces by Balakirev, like the 2nd Scherzo.
