Impromptu No 3 in A flat major, Op 34
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The enchanting Third Impromptu was composed at more or less the same time as the first three Nocturnes and is almost a perpetuum mobile. Beginning in A flat and modulating with dazzling virtuosity through related keys, such minor harmonic clouds as try to impede its progress are but the shadows of shadows and soon swept away in the infectious gaiety of its impetuous semiquavers.
