Zwei Klavierstücke, Op 65
While in America during the 1890s, Scharwenka produced a number of smaller pieces which were published exclusively by The John Church Co. of Cincinnati. They were probably intended for the domestic market in the USA as salon music and with Scharwenka’s name on them, were a guaranteed success for the publisher! The Menuett and Scherzo Op 65 are such examples and while not too technically demanding, they do require a careful and sympathetic approach.
