Polonaise in G sharp minor, KKIVa/3


Polonaise No 14 in G sharp minor was composed in 1822 and first published in 1864. Dominated by arpeggiated figuration and decoration (at the expense, arguably, of melody), its orbit is one essentially of elegance rather than impulse.

La Polonaise no14 en sol dièse mineur fut composée en 1822 et publiée pour la première fois en 1864. Dominée par une figuration et une décoration arpégées (peut-être au dépens de la mélodie), c’est une œuvre plus essentiellement élégante que spontanée.

Die Polonaise Nr.14 in gis-Moll (erstveröffentlicht 1864) wurde 1822 komponiert. Sie wird beherrscht von arpeggierter Figuration und Verzierung (möglicherweise auf Kosten der Melodik), und ihre Wirkung ist eher elegant als impulsiv.
