'A series that will surely raise this composer's status immeasurably' (Gramophone)

Impromptus, Op 54

Impromptu 1  [1'50]
Impromptu 2  [3'25]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Two impromptus, Op 54, are Glazunov’s farewell to the nineteenth-century salon genre. Written in 1895 they are as fresh and charming as his first piano work, the Suite on the name ‘SASCHA’, Op 2. His later piano works would be dominated by larger-scale works such as the preludes and fugues and piano sonatas.
