Navigation etc.

Skazka/skazki, a transliteration of a Russian term favored of Nikolay Medtner (who wrote many, most for piano solo) and used by others also, is sometimes mistranslated as fairytale but rather better translated, I am informed, as folktale or perhaps just ballade. Date of composition from score (each work is footnoted with date and place of composition.)
