Novelette und Melodie, Op 22

Novelette  [4'17]
Melodie  [4'47]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Novelette und Melodie, Op 22, were probably composed in 1875. There is some evidence here of Schumann’s influence, particularly in the energetic Novelette, although in the middle section Scharenka’s Polish origins show through. In direct contrast, the simplicity of the Melodie creates an air of restful tranquillity.
