'the music here could hardly be more sympathetically presented than by Tanyel, whose performances are immaculate in their musicianship and virtuosity' (Gramophone)

'Tanyel's clear enthusiasm for this unhackneyed programme is utterly refreshing … The performance reminds us again just how well she understands the piano's Romantic repertoire' (Classic CD)

Scherzo in G major, Op 4

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Scherzo in G major, Op 4 (1869), was published by Breitkopf und Härtel following the success achieved with the Polish Dances, Op 3. It is a piece full of youthful exuberance and a good example of Scharwenka’s ability to compose effectively for his own virtuoso display without sacrificing true musical content. The pianist is given no respite as the piece hurries on, ending with a spectacular flurry of broken octaves.
