"The Four Ballades, Op. 10 were written just months after the Variations, and share with them an overall feeling of profound, pointed introspection, and, at times, almost unbearable poignancy.  Shaped by an intensely personal inner logic, they eschew any brilliant effect, and such few explosions as do occur fade away inexorably." 

—from Ignat Solzhenitsyn's liner notes
