The lark, the wonder of a work
In one of the cyclical vocal works of Mikhail Glinka (1804 – 1857), the composer of the first Russian musical tradition, titled “Fireworks of St. Petersburg”, is also a piano and piano melody entitled “The Lark”, which the composer of the Russian Fifth Group Mili Balakirjev (1836 – 1910) transcited piano solo. So the wonderful vocal melody turned into a piano work with varied and technically difficult invoices. This composition, for the melodic beauty and inspiration, as well as for Baladyrie’s variation and improvisation, has been played many times by various pianists. The shadow we are presenting is executed by one of Israel’s greatest pianists Evgeni Kisin, born in Moscow in 1971.
