Scčnes de la csárda No 12 'Piczi tubiczám', Op 83

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
A beautiful, slow song, to be performed sadly (tristamente), opens No 12. It is stated only once by the violin with an unembellished harmonic accompaniment in the piano. A solo violin interlude leads to the moderato four-bar tune with two variations (‘They say, my little sweetheart, You don’t love me any more’). A short reminder of the opening song and a violin passage bring us to an A–B–A form csárdas dance tune, which has variations on the first part (in the major). The minor-key middle section is twice repeated. A fast, sixteen-bar additional subject with modulative alterations encompasses the finale.
