Five Polish Dances, Op 3
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The five Polish Dances Op 3 of 1869 quickly led to Scharwenka’s popularity, and whilst one is initially tempted to make comparisons with the mazurkas of Chopin, these early pieces already have a distinct originality. The melodic content is strong and quite rhythmic, and it is obvious why they made such an immediate impact.
