Rondoletto in G major, Op 149

composer
1848; commissiond by Charlotte Moscheles

 
Spohr’s only other work for solo piano other than the Piano Sonata is a Rondoletto (i.e. ‘little rondo’) whose tripping outer sections enclose a minor-keyed central episode that recalls Mendelssohn in agitato vein. Spohr wrote this engaging salon piece in 1848 in response to a request from Charlotte Moscheles (wife of the famous composer–pianist Ignaz Moscheles) for a contribution to an album of piano miniatures that was never published.

Mise à part la Sonate pour piano, la seule autre œuvre pour piano solo de Spohr est un Rondoletto (un «petit rondo»), dont les sections extrêmes sautillantes encadrent un épisode central en mineur rappelant Mendelssohn dans sa veine agitato. Spohr composa cet avenant morceau de salon en 1848, à la demande de Charlotte Moscheles (la femme de l’illustre compositeur–pianiste Ignaz Moscheles) pour un album de miniatures pianistiques qui ne fut jamais publié.

Mit Ausnahme von der Sonate, das einzige andere Werk für Soloklavier von Spohr ist ein Rondoletto (d. h. kleines Rondo), dessen perlende Außenteile eine zentrale Episode in Moll umschließen, die an Mendelssohn in agitato-Stimmung erinnert. Spohr schrieb dieses anmutige Salonstück im Jahre 1848 auf die Bitte von Charlotte Moscheles (die Ehefrau des berühmten Komponisten und Pianisten Ignaz Moscheles) hin, als Beitrag zu einem Album mit Klavierminiaturen, das jedoch nie veröffentlicht wurde.
