    Composer: Mily Balakirev
    Artist: Alexander Paley (piano)

    Mily Balakirev (1837-1910) was the founder of the group of Russian composers called ‘The Mighty Handful’. Together with Borodin, Rimsky Korsakov, Cui and Mussorgsky he helped create a distinctive Russian school of music that was not reliant on the influence of the Austro German school.
    Studying at the St Petersburg Conservatoire, he won the praise of Glinka, and had an influence on the young Tchaikovsky. He wrote two symphonies, two piano concertos, several symphonic poems and many piano works.
    On these 6CDs his entire output for piano can be found. A superb pianist, he produced one of the most taxing works ever written for the instrument, his Oriental Fantasy Islamey. His piano sonata is no less impressive, and the Seven Mazurkas are wonderfully melodic works. There is much to discover on these discs.

    Sadly, Balakirev suffered a complete nervous breakdown in 1871, and he withdrew from life, eventually emerging to take up a minor management role on the railways. In 1876 he began to compose again, and in 1883 was appointed as director of the Imperial Chapel. He retired in 1895, and continued composing, but by now considered old fashioned and was forgotten even by his old friends. However, one young composer, Igor Stravinsky had a soft spot for him, and pitied him as he suffered from bouts of depression.

  • Tara Kamangar: Glinka/Balakirev The Lark


    From East of Melancholy (Delos Release, 2014)
    Perf. by Tara Kamangar / Dir. by Matthias Heuermann
    Known as the Father of Russian Classical Music, composer Mikhail Glinka was raised in Russia with a cosmopolitan upbringing, studying a variety of subjects and languages, including English, German, and Persian. While studying music abroad in Europe as a young man, Glinka saw the opportunity to combine the Russian songs he heard at home with Germanized harmonization. Glinka studied composition in Berlin for five months before returning to Russia at the news of his father's death.

    Glinka went on to write two operas based on stories of Russian history which elegantly incorporated elements of Russian folk music. The operas were panned by audiences, whereupon Glinka decided to return to Europe, saying “I don’t want to have anything to do with Russian music- any more than with Russian winters....May I never see the damned country again.” Within less than a year, in 1857, he died in Berlin.

    **The Lark was originally written for voice and piano by Glinka, and later arranged for piano by his protégé Mily Balakirev. The translated lyrics to the original song are as follows:

    Between heaven and earth
    The song spreads
    Sounding ever
    Stronger and stronger.

    The wind carries the song
    To whom it does not know
    But knowing that she for whom it is meant
    Will recognize from whom it comes.

    One cannot see this singer of the fields
    Who sings so loudly
    Seeking his mate,
    The lark with his ringing song.

    Go my song
    Song of sweet hope
    To one who will remember me
    With a secret sigh.

    (Poem by Nestor Kukolnik, English translation by Molly Liem)

  • Mily Balakirev - Dumka


    Mily Alexeyevich Balakirev (2 January 1837 [O.S. 21 December 1836] – 29 May [O.S. 16 May] 1910) was a Russian pianist, conductor and composer known today primarily for his work promoting musical nationalism and his encouragement of more famous Russian composers, notably Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. He began his career as a pivotal figure, extending the fusion of traditional folk music and experimental classical music practices begun by composer Mikhail Glinka. In the process, Balakirev developed musical patterns that could express overt nationalistic feeling. After a nervous breakdown and consequential sabbatical, he returned to classical music but did not wield the same level of influence as before.

    In conjunction with critic and fellow nationalist Vladimir Stasov, in the late-1850s and early 1860s Balakirev brought together the composers now known as The Five—the others were Alexander Borodin, César Cui, Modest Mussorgsky and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. For several years, Balakirev was the only professional musician of the group; the others were amateurs limited in musical education. He imparted to them his musical beliefs, which continued to underlie their thinking long after he left the group in 1871, and encouraged their compositional efforts. While his methods could be dictatorial, the results of his influence were several works which established these composers' reputations individually and as a group. He performed a similar function for Tchaikovsky at two points in the latter's career—in 1868–9 with the fantasy-overture Romeo and Juliet and in 1882–5 with the Manfred Symphony.

    As a composer, Balakirev finished major works many years after he had started them; he began his First Symphony in 1864 but completed it in 1897. The exception to this was his oriental fantasy Islamey for solo piano, which he composed quickly and remains popular among virtuosos. Often, the musical ideas normally associated with Rimsky-Korsakov or Borodin originated in Balakirev's compositions, which Balakirev played at informal gatherings of The Five. However, his slow pace in completing works for the public deprived him of credit for his inventiveness, and pieces that would have enjoyed success had they been completed in the 1860s and '70s made a much smaller impact.

    Balakirev became important in the history of Russian music through both his works and his leadership. More so than Glinka, he helped set the course for Russian orchestral music and Russian lyrical song during the second half of the 19th century. While he learned from Glinka certain methods of treating Russian folk song instrumentally, a bright, transparent orchestral technique (something he also learned from the works of Hector Berlioz) and many elements of his basic style, he developed and expanded upon what he had learned, fusing it satisfactorily with then-advanced Romantic compositional techniques.

    Unfortunately, the protracted composition of several works robbed Balakirev of the credit for their inventiveness. Pieces which could have won success had they been completed in the 1860s and 70s made a much smaller impact when they were introduced much later in the composer's life. This was because they had been overtaken stylistically by the accomplishments of younger composers, and because some of their compositional devices were appropriated by other members of The Five—the most notable example of the latter is Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, which was influenced by Balakirev's symphonic poem Tamara. Another consequence was a tendency to overwork details, which robbed these pieces of freshness of inspiration and made then seem overdone.

    Despite the protracted composition period, there was no discernible difference, especially in the two symphonies, between the sections completed in the 1860s and those written much later. Zetlin asserts that while there was no diminution of Balakirev's creative talent, the reason for this lack of disparity was because Balakirev had ceased to evolve as an artist; he remained creatively at the point he had reached in the 1860s, and his newest works seemed thus merely an echo of the past.

  • Mikhail Glinka - The Lark - Evgeny Kissin


    Beautiful recording of Glinka's The Lark By Evgeny Kissin



    Mily Balakirev learned his craft from local musicians. Conductor Karl Eisrich introduced Balakirev to the music of Chopin, Glinka, and Alexander Ulybyshev, a music loving landowner who maintained a vast library of musical scores. In 1855, Balakirev composed his Piano Fantasia on Themes from Glinka's a Life for the Tsar, and Ulybyshev took Balakirev to St. Petersburg to meet Glinka himself. Glinka appreciated Balakirev's talent, and offered advice and encouragement. Balakirev enjoyed a brilliant debut as a pianist in St. Petersburg, and in 1858 performed Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 in the presence of the Tsar. In April 1858, Balakirev fell ill with brain fever; although he recovered, he would suffer from lifelong headaches, nervousness, and depression. With the deaths of both Glinka and Ulybyshev, Balakirev decided to carry on their ideas of a style reflective of the Russian national spirit. Balakirev wrote incidental music to Shakespeare's play King Lear in 1859-1861, and its resulting popularity enhanced his reputation. In 1861, Balakirev established the Free School of Music with Gabriel Lomakin, with the support of Tsar Nicolas. At the Free School's concerts, Balakirev programmed his own music and that of his students -- Cui, Rimsky-Korsakov, Mussorgsky, and Borodin. This last-named group, along with Balakirev himself, were dubbed the Mighty Handful in the Russian press, and recognized as the standard bearers of a new form of Russian musical art.

    When Lomakin resigned from the Free School in November 1867, Balakirev assumed its directorship. Along with his prestige came an increased lack of sensitivity and overbearing personality traits; by the late 1860s, Mussorgsky and Rimsky-Korsakov were exchanging letters complaining about Balakirev's interference. Likewise, St. Petersburg audiences were protesting the lack of light, familiar fare on the Free School concert programs. Balakirev stepped down from the directorship of the Free School in April 1869, but bounced back with his most famous work, the brilliant piano fantasy Islamey, premiered by Nicholas Rubinstein in December. Rubinstein played the work at concerts in Paris and elsewhere, and it achieved great popularity in the West. In addition, Balakirev met and encouraged Tchaikovsky, who composed his Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture under the older composer's watchful eye. The Free School's concert season of 1871-1872 was a disaster; as a result, Balakirev lapsed into a depression lasting five years, and Rimsky-Korsakov overtook the direction of the institution. Friends helped revive Balakirev's spirits, and he returned as an instructor in 1877, but began to match temperaments with Rimsky-Korsakov, who resigned in 1880. Balakirev returned to the post of director, and in 1883 premiered his finest work, the symphonic poem Tamara. Well received in Russia, Tamara was a true revelation for musicians in France, who were amazed by the textures of Russian orchestral color.

    In 1883, Balakirev accepted the position of Music Director of Imperial Chapel, naming Rimsky-Korsakov as his assistant. Three years later, Balakirev quarreled with his publisher, Jurgenson, and was dropped from their roster. In 1890, Rimsky-Korsakov held a gala in honor of his own 25th anniversary as a composer; Balakirev refused to attend, occasioning the final break in their relations. Having retired from the Imperial Chapel in 1894, Balakirev made his final public appearance conducting his First Symphony at the Free School in 1898. On the strength of this symphony Balakirev acquired a new publisher, and resumed composition, including the Glinka Cantata (1904) and a Second Symphony (1909). Unfortunately, these later works were received with complete indifference. As he had offended practically everyone in his social circle, few friends were left to comfort Balakirev in his last years. He died at the age of 73.

    The Lark (often called The Skylark) was originally composed by Russian composer Mikhail Glinka, as part of a set of small works entitled A Farewell to Saint Petersberg. This piece, the 10th work of the set, was then arranged for solo piano here by pianist and composer Mily Balakirev.

    Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, Singapore

    Между небом и землёй песня раздаётся,
    Неисходною струёй громче громче лётся.
    Не видать певца полей где поёт так громко
    Над подруженькой своей жаворонок звонкий.

    Ветер песенку несёт, а кому, не знает.
    Та комы, она поймёт, от ково, узнает!
    Лейця, песенка моя песнь надежды сладкой
    Кто-то вспомнит про меня и вздохнёт украдкой.

    Between the sky and the earth a song is heard
    An unending stream of sound pours louder, louder.
    Unseen is the singer in the field where sings so loudly
    Above his mate the sonorous skylark.

    The wind carries the song, to whom, it does not know.
    She to whom it is sung, she will understand who it is from.
    Pour on, my song of sweet hope
    Someone remembers me and sighs furtively.

    The Lark was originally No. 10 of a group of twelve songs that Glinka wrote in 1840, entitled Farewell to St. Petersburg. Balakirev, born in 1836, got to know Glinka in 1855 and admired him deeply. Glinka inspired Balakirev to start composing and has paraphrased several of Glinka's works, The Lark being the most famous of them.

    Balakirev was a Russian pianist, conductor and composer. His work promoted musical nationalism, and he tried to extend the fusion of traditional folk music and experimental classical music practices begun by composer Mikhail Glinka.
    In the late 1850s and early 1860s Balakirev brought together the composers now known as The Five, Alexander Borodin, César Cui, Modest Mussorgsky and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. For several years, Balakirev was the only professional musician of the group; the others were amateurs limited in musical education. He imparted to them his musical beliefs, which continued to underlie their thinking long after he left the group in 1871, and encouraged their compositional efforts.
    Balakirev entered the University of Kazan in 1853, as a mathematics student. He was soon noted in local society as a pianist and was able to supplement his limited finances by taking pupils. Works from this period include this opening movement (the only one completed) of his first piano concerto in f-sharp minor. Balakirev made his debut in a university concert in February 1856, playing this movement.
