Rondoletto in G major, Op 149
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
