Within a compressed ternary structure, the Albumleaf hints at retrospective wistfulness beneath its capricious surface. It was published in 1927 by ‘The Associated Board of the RAM and RCM’, founded in 1889 but destined to acquire its more compact ‘ABRSM’ styling only in 1933.

Dans une structure comprimée, la Feuille d’album insinue sous sa surface fantasque une mélancolie rétrospective. Elle fut publiée en 1927 par «The Associated Board of the RAM and RCM», fondée en 1889 et appelée à devenir, de manière plus compacte, mais seulement en 1933, l’«ABRSM» («Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music»).

Innerhalb einer dichten dreiteiligen Struktur deutet Albumleaf unter einer kapriziösen Oberfläche nostalgische Wehmut an. Es erschien 1927 bei „The Associated Board of the RAM [Royal Academy of Music] and RCM [Royal College of Music]“, das 1889 gegründet wurde, seinen prägnanteren Namen als „ABRSM“ (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) jedoch erst 1933 erhielt.
