'Shaham and Erez deliver outstandingly committed performances, revelling in the music's virtuosity, fantasy and heightened intensity of expression' (BBC Music Magazine)
Like Op 32, the Stimmungen Op 36 (published in 1913) are atmospheric miniatures, the ternary song form of No 1 building passion over a syncopated backdrop, whilst No 2 explores a more eerily chromatic harmony with transparent textures.

Comme l’op. 32, les Stimmungen, op. 36 (publié en 1913), sont des miniatures évocatrices, la forme lied ternaire de la première laissant jaillir la passion sur une toile de fond syncopée, alors que la seconde explore une harmonie étrangement chromatique dans des textures transparentes.

Ebenso wie op. 32 sind die Zwei Stimmungen op. 36 (veröffentlicht 1913) atmosphärische Miniaturen, wobei in der dreiteiligen Form von Nr. 1 eine leidenschaftliche Steigerung über einem synkopierten Hintergrund stattfindet, während Nr. 2 sich mit einer eher unheimlich anmutenden chromatischen Harmonie mit transparenten Texturen auseinandersetzt.
