Étude in C minor
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The solitary Étude in C minor (in modo antico), without opus number, was Medtner’s contribution to a collection published in 1916 in aid of war victims. Although not of particular importance it has enough energy and rhythmic ingenuity to raise it well above the level of the numerous salon pieces of the period written ‘in ancient style’.
