Intermezzo, Op 6 No 5

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The ‘Allegro capriccioso’ tempo marking gives some indication of the dual nature of this piece. In B flat, with a central episode in F sharp major, this fluent study is an excellent example of Catoire’s melodic transformation: the initial rising scalic theme is inverted for the central section (such treatment having been hinted at in the opening part). Both are alluded to in combination in the concluding bars.
