Reviews

'… brimful with alert character and beauty whilst the two piano pieces are delightful in their raucous melodies … briliantly done by Tanyel' (Classical.net)
While in America during the 1890s, Scharwenka produced a number of smaller pieces which were published exclusively by The John Church Co. of Cincinnati. They were probably intended for the domestic market in the USA as salon music and with Scharwenka’s name on them, were a guaranteed success for the publisher! The Menuett and Scherzo Op 65 are such examples and while not too technically demanding, they do require a careful and sympathetic approach.

Pendant son séjour en Amérique pendant les années 1890-1900, Scharwenka composa plusieurs petits morceaux qui furent publiés exclusivement par la John Church Co de Cincinnati. lls étaient probablement destinés à une clientèle d’amateurs américains comme musique de salon et le nom de Scharwenka était une garantie de succts pour l’éditeur! Le Menuett et le Scherzo op.65 en sont des exemples. Ils ne présentant pas de grandes difficultés techniques, mais demandant une interprétation attentive et compréhensive.

extrait des notes rédigées par Martin Eastick © 1995

Bei seinern Aufenthalt in Amerika in den neunziger Jahren schrieb der Kornponist eine Reihe kleiner Stücke, die exklusiv im Verlag The John Church Co. in Cincinnati veröffentlicht wurden. Sie waren wahrscheinlich als Salommisik für den amerikanischen Markt gedacht, denn allein der Name Scharwenka war damals eine ErfoIgsgarantie für den Verlag. Das Menuett und Scherzo, op. 56, gehört zu diesen Werken, die zwar technisch nicht sehr anspruchsvoll sind, aber doch eine sorgfältige und einfühlsame Interpretation erfordern.
