I need help identifying this score.  I have a short recording--see attached MP3 file. It could be from a concerto by Liszt or a Russian composer, but that's a guess.  You can stream it online if you google "Reilly, Ace of Spies."  It's on Episode 4 and starts at about 14:15. Or just listen to the attached audio file.

That's Medtner, Fairy tale in B flat minor Op. 20 no. 1



The clip you posted starts at around 1:02 in the video above.

Such inexhaustible invention and pianistic skill from the composer (and no shortage of the latter from the pianist either!) - but what a shame that Skazki has been translated into English as Fairy Tales when just plain Tales or Folk Tales or something similar would have been less misleading...
