The Étude pathétique in B minor, Op 124, is, as its title implies, an agitated affair: impassioned, vehement, even tragic, chromatically inflected (and afflicted), with grand gestures and dramatic alternations of tempo. But as a piece of rhodomontade it is carried off with fine style.

from notes by Calum MacDonald © 1992

L’Étude pathétique en si mineur, opus 124, est, comme le titre l’indique, un morceau tourmenté: passionné, véhément, même tragique, infligé (et affligé) chromatiquement de nobles gestes et de dramatiques alternances de tempo. Mais c’est un exemple de fanfaronade enlevé avec le plus grand style.

Die Étude pathétique in h-Moll Op. 124 ist, wie schon der Titel nahelegt, eine erregtere Angelegenheit: leidenschaftlich, hitzig, ja sogar tragisch, chromatisch angehaucht (und belastet), mit großartigen Gesten und dramatischen Tempowechseln. Doch als Rodomontade wird das Stück in glanzvollem Stil bewältigt.
