Piano Pieces

Liadov wrote a great number of small sets of character pieces, mostly Mazurkas, Preludes and Waltzes. While obviously indebted to Chopin, as were many Russian composers of the time, Liadov nevertheless has his own voice. These charming miniatures have an unmistakenly Russian flavor, in turn lyrical and rumbustious, and are particularly well-crafted for the piano.

His piano output represents one of the finest bodies of Russian piano music of the late-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and deserves wider recognition.
