Notes and Editorial Reviews

The piano music of Sergei Lyapunov (1859–1924) blends the Russian nationalism of the Balakirev circle – of which Lyapunov was a member – with the virtuosic tradition of Liszt. Although his superb piano-writing combines contrapuntal dexterity and a rich vein of lyricism, much of his output for piano has been neglected, and this chronological survey, covering three decades of Lyapunov’s composing life, contains a number of first recordings.
