Drei Klavierstücke, Op 86
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Although Scharwenka lived until 1924, it is quite clear that he, along with many others of his time, had no interest in the major cultural changes that were taking place in the early years of the twentieth century. His 3 Klavierstücke Op 86 (Nocturne, Serenade, Märchen), which were published in 1913, underline this fact, although they give no indication of any lessening in his creative powers. His melodic ideas are as fresh and strong as ever, and especially in the Nocturne and in the Märchen (Fairy-Tale) there is more than just a passing reference to Franz Liszt. Scharwenka here seems to re-affirm his commitment to the musical ideals of the nineteenth century, and to a world in which he was perfectly at home, and where he was honoured with the respect he deserved.
