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.

Les Deux impromptus, op. 54, constituent les adieux de Glazounov à la musique de salon du XIXe siècle. Écrits en 1895, ils sont aussi frais et charmants que sa première œuvre pour piano, la Suite sur le nom «SASCHA», op. 2. Ses œuvres pianistiques ultérieures allaient être dominées par des morceaux à plus grande échelle, tels les préludes et fugues et les sonates pour piano.

Die Zwei Impromptus, op. 54 stellen Glasunows Abschied vom Salongenre des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts dar. Sie wurden 1895 geschrieben und sind so frisch und bezaubernd wie seine erste Klavierarbeit, die Suite auf den Namen „SASCHA“, op. 2. Seine späteren Klavierarbeiten wie die Präludien und Fugen und die Klaviersonaten sollten von größerem Umfang sein.
