Skazki, Op 26
Sunny moods prevail in the Op 26 set. The tranquillity of the first piece is disturbed by nothing more alarming than the chirping of a bird, while the second unleashes a brief eruption of exuberance and laughter. Then comes a gently melancholic soliloquy with, perhaps, a touch of world-weariness which persists in the main theme of the fourth piece, albeit here punctuated by bursts of impish humour.
