Ten Preludes, Op 33

composer
1926

 
The Ten Preludes, Op 33, were written in 1926, the year Bortkiewicz became an Austrian citizen and when he must have enjoyed the greatest security in his life. Several of them are clearly modelled on Chopin’s piano music, although numbers 6, 7 and 8 are unmistakably in Bortkiewicz’s own musical language.

Les Dix Préludes, op. 33, datent de 1926, année où Bortkiewicz devint autrichien et dut jouir du plus grand sentiment de sécurité jamais éprouvé. Certains de ces morceaux sont clairement modelés d’après la musique pour piano de Chopin, mais les numéros 6, 7 et 8 ressortent indéniablement du propre langage musical de Bortkiewicz.

Die Zehn Préludes, Op. 33, entstanden im Jahre 1926, als Bortkiewicz österreichischer Staatsbürger wurde und sein Leben wahrscheinlich so gesichert war wie nie zuvor. Für viele dieser Préludes diente eindeutig Chopins Klaviermusik als Vorlage, obgleich Nummer 6, 7 und 8 unverkennbar Bortkiewiczs ganz persönliche Handschrift tragen.
