The tradition of the piano ballade, begun by Chopin's masterpieces, includes important works of Liszt, Brahms, Grieg, and Fauré, yet is otherwise virtually unknown to us. This collection offers a rich and varied sample from the enormous number of forgotten ballades originally published between 1842 and 1893. Among these are virtuosic ballades, salon ballades, narrative ballades, ballades inspired by folksong, and ballades inspired by Chopin. In all, ten works by ten different composers, including Ignaz Moscheles, Hans von Bülow, Sigismond Thalberg, Joachim Raff, and Edward MacDowell, are presented. Considered together with better-known representatives of the type, these works suggest the nature and the range of an important genre.
