'Alkan' was the pseudonym of the French pianist and composer Charles Henri Valentin Morbange 1813-1888). A friend of Chopin and Liszt, and an almost exact contemporary of the latter, he devoted himself entirely to the composition of piano music, producing a large number of works of remarkable individuality and technical difficulty. These include many imaginative pieces, some of which will b; heard tonight; a few large-scale compositions, such as the Symphony for Piano to be broadcast next Sunday; and several books of brilliant studies, which will be represented in a third recital of his muse on August 2.
