Scčnes de la csárda No 10 'Szalatnai emlék', Op 69

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The opening luscious melody introduced by the piano, is followed by a quasi-improvisatory statement in the violin. The next theme is then freely varied, and is followed by a dance melody which later exploits triplet figures and trills in a series of variations. Following a brief return of the opening melody, another theme is introduced in the piano. Set against rapid figuration in the violin, this theme has an asymmetrical form of fourteen bars, divided into 3+3+5+3. The piece ends with a coda which contains some rather surprising chromatic modulations. (Szalatna is a small town in Northern Hungary, now Slovakia.)
