This collection contains complex, surprising pieces by Nikolai Medtner, a brilliant, underrated Russian 20th-century Romantic whose music, though similar to that of his friend Rachmaninoff, is more cerebral and harmonically adventurous. These 34 fairy tales for piano highlight the composer's gift for musical storytelling, with their intense polyrhythms, intricate textures, and complex harmonic development.

  • April 02, 2008 why only 4 stars!

    I always loved the Dover editions for its beautiful printing (and the pricing!)Only 4 stars, because it does not like to stay on the music stand, due to the binding.But it can be overcome with a litle violence!But just having all the Skazky´s is a miracle...

    !so 4 1/5 stars
