Piano Sonata No 2 in E flat major, Op 36

composer

 
During the seven years that had elapsed since the appearance of his first piano sonata, Scharwenka had established his reputation as a composer, and his second sonata in E flat, Op 36, composed in 1878, was without doubt his most substantial work for piano solo. There are four movements, with the scherzo preceding the slow third movement. Once again the melodic content is strong throughout and the piano writing is of consistent high standard, as one might expect from one of the leading pianists of the day.

Pendant les sept années qui séparent sa première sonate et sa deuxième sonate en mi bémol, op 36, composée en 1878, Scharwenka établira sa réputation de compositeur, et la deuxième sonate restera sans doute son œuvre la plus importante pour piano seul. Ici, quatre mouvements dont un scherzo précédant un troisième mouvement lent. Encore une fois, le contenu mélodique est fort et l’écriture toujours de très haute qualité, comme on l’attend de l’un des plus grands pianistes de l’époque.

In den sieben Jahren nach Erscheinen seiner Klaviersonate Nr. 1 hatte Scharwenka seinen Ruf als Komponist etablieren können, und seine 1878 komponierte Klaviersonate Nr. 2 in Es-Dur, Op. 36 gehört zweifelsohne zu seinen gewichtigsten Klavierwerken. Es gibt vier Sätze mit einem dem langsamen Satz vorgelagerten Scherzo. Wieder ist die Qualität der Melodien durchgängig vortrefflich und die Schreibweise für das Klavier von anhaltend hohem Niveau, wie man es wohl von einem der führenden Pianisten seiner Zeit erwartet.
