A wonderful piece, but very difficult - only a few will be able to master it... Since this pronouncement by Nicolai Rubinstein, who nonetheless premiered it with bravura, the work has unjustly been stuck with the label of unplayable. The wild, almost demonic character of this oriental fantasy has certainly contributed to this reputation: through the use of Caucasian and Armenian folk idioms Balakirev calls forth a keyboard firework that aroused the admiration even of the Titan Liszt. Our edition provides today's pianists with a musical text that is not only reliable and accurate, but also clear and well-organised.

Songs Include:

"You guys are so awesome about being attentive to your customers. I have a LOT of band kids that float in and out of this house...I'm going to spread the word about your company to them. They're always needing something to upgrade, etc. I'm very, very pleased with your service and will definitely "be back"."

-- T.G., Memphis, TN
"I couldn't believe it! I ordered a drumset for my nephew for his birthday through your website just 2 days before his birthday. Ordering so late I just knew it wouldn't arrive until a few days after his birthday. I was thrilled when he called during his "big party day" to say it arrived and Thanks. He's still young enough that getting your birthday presents on the day of is still a big deal. Thank you so much!"

-- C.P., Lincoln, NB
