Description: Even though there is already quite a bit of Balakirev’s piano œuvre already on disc, this new series again offers a first recording in its second volume, this time an early version from 1856 of the first Nocturne (which was revised in 1898) which is performed here from the composer’s manuscript sourced from the St. Petersburg Conservatory. Nicholas Walker (piano).
