The Étude mélodique in G flat, Op 118, is charmingly songful in rather Schumannesque vein, much of the interest generated by a rippling inner voice in triplets – but its scope enlarges as it proceeds and rises to an unexpectedly powerful climactic episode in F sharp minor.

from notes by Calum MacDonald © 1992

L’Étude mélodique en sol bémol, opus 118, est délicieusement poétique, d’un style plutôt Schumannesque – une cascadante voix intérieure en triolets crée la plus grande partie de son attrait – mais comme elle progresse, elle se développe et s’élève jusqu’à un épisode culminant d’une force surprenante en fa dièse mineur.

Die Étude mélodique, Op. 118, in Ges-Dur ist reizvoll melodiös mit starken Anklängen an Schumann und wird insbesondere durch eine in Triolen geführte plätschernde innere Stimme interessant – doch schwillt das Stück im weiteren Verlauf an und steigert sich zu einem unerwartet kraftvollen Höhepunkt in fis-Moll.
