Polka in F sharp minor
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Polka in F sharp minor represents Balakirev at his most modest. This was the first of his piano works to appear in print (in 1859), and it is as winsomely charming—though by no means as athletic in its demands—as Louis Moreau Gottschalk’s famous novelty piece of 1845/6, Le bananier.
