Zwei Stimmungen, Op 32
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Achron’s return to St Petersburg in 1908 allowed him to study orchestration with Maximilian Steinberg, while still performing and composing. From this period come the expressive Zwei Stimmungen (‘Two Impressions’), Op 32 (1910). The first Stimmung, in D minor, is a lively dance contrasting nostalgic minor and optimistic major modes; the second, in B minor, is more reflective, shaded by a chromatically flowing texture.
