Liapunov - Piano Music

Russian composer and pianist (1859-1924). He graduated from the Moscow Conservatory in 1883, and later that year met Balakirev, who was going to become his mentor. He moved to St. Petersburg, where Balakirev kept urging the rather shy Liapunov to take composition seriously and tried hard to get his works published. Liapunov also collected nearly 300 folksongs with Balakirev and Liadov, some of which were published in arrangements by Liapunov with piano accompaniment. He was employed at Balakirev´s Free School of Music from 1905. After Balakirev´s death in 1910, Liapunov taught theory and piano at the St Petersburg Conservatory. Having emigrated to Paris in 1923 and directed a school of music for Russian émigrés there, he died from a heart attack the following year. His masterpiece as a composer for piano is the Op. 11 group of 12 transcendental studies dedicated to the memory of Liszt, but he wrote many more pieces of distinction, for instance the single movement Piano Sonata Op. 27 (also modelled on Liszt) and the Prelude and Fugue in b minor Op. 58, which demonstrates Liapunov´s great talent for contrapuntal writing.
