      Julius Isserlis: Ballade in G minor, Op 3 No 1 (3:35); Ballade in E-flat minor, Op 3 No 2 (5:07)

      Sam Haywood, piano

      In 1989, the young pianist Sam Haywood was awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Julius Isserlis Scholarship. Years later, having become friends with Isserlis’s grandson Steven, Haywood came across some of Julius’s piano compositions in a drawer at the house of George, Julius’s son. The editions were unclear and full of printing errors. So, struck by the beauty of the music, Haywood decided to make his own edition, the fruits of which are to be heard on this recording.
