Quatre morceaux, Op 65

composer
published in Vienna by Ludwig Doblinger in 1947

 
The Quatre Morceaux, Op 65, are the last known surviving works by Bortkiewicz and were published in 1947, five years before the composer’s death. There seems to have been a brief revival of interest in Bortkiewicz’s music in 1947 (the year of the composer’s seventieth birthday) and this publication by the Viennese publisher Ludwig Doblinger (seven years after his previous published work, Lyrica Nova, Op 59) was probably arranged to coincide with the formation, in Vienna, of the Bortkiewicz Society in the same year.

Les Quatre Morceaux, op. 65, publiées en 1947 (cinq ans avant la mort du compositeur), sont les ultimes œuvres connues de Bortkiewicz à nous être parvenues. L’année 1947 semble avoir vu un bref regain d’intérêt pour la musique de Bortkiewicz (alors âgé de soixante-dix ans) et cette publication par l’éditeur viennois Ludwig Doblinger (sept ans après sa dernière pièce publiée, Lyrica Nova, op.59) entendit probablement coïncider avec la formation de la Bortkiewicz Society.

Die Quatre Morceaux, Op. 65, die letzten erhaltenen Werke von Bortkiewicz, wurden fünf Jahre vor dem Tod des Komponisten 1947 veröffentlicht. In jenem Jahr (in dem er seinen siebzigsten Geburtstag feierte) scheint es eine kurzfristige Wiederbelebung des Interesses an seiner Musik gegeben zu haben, und diese Publikation des Wiener Verlags Ludwig Doblinger (sieben Jahre nach Bortkiewicz’ letztem veröffentlichten Werk, Lyrica Nova, Op. 59) wurde vermutlich im Zusammenhang mit der Gründung der Wiener Bortkiewicz-Gesellschaft im selben Jahr veranlaßt.
