Introduction and Variations on a German national air in E major 'Der Schweizerbub', KkIVa/4
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Innocent and harmless, born of childhood and untroubled times, the variations on a German national air (1826) – actually not so much German as Tyrolean Austrian – can be seen as a preparation, in kind and method, for the larger scale canvas of the Là ci darem variations, Op 2 (1827).
