Scènes de la csárda No 1, Op 9

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The first of the Scènes de la csárda begins with a gypsy-style violin solo which leads into a passionate melody accompanied by the piano imitating the cimbalom with its typical tremolo and arpeggio effects. Two contrasting melodies follow: a jolly dance theme and slower melody (with a set of variations), which originally accompanied the words ‘Draw the bow bitterly, ’til my heart breaks’.
