Scènes de la csárda No 13, Op 102
No 13 is dedicated to the Czech violin virtuoso Jan Kubelík. The piano introduces the first, fast theme. This three-bar-long, asymmetrical tune is divided between the chords (first bar) and the following rhythmical motif of two bars. This provides the base for a fairly developed first part, including also a set of variations. A violin cadenza leads to the second simple, soft melody (with a cimbalom-like accompaniment and a contrapuntal melody in the left-hand). A modulating fantasy by the piano on a motif from the first theme’s second bar provides an interlude. Another, two-part melody is introduced by the violin. The first part has typical trills, while the second part opens with two plucked chords. Both interchange in the variations.
