'… brimful with alert character and beauty whilst the two piano pieces are delightful in their raucous melodies … briliantly done by Tanyel' (Classical.net)
In his early works Scharwenka quickly acquired confidence in his own creative ability which is reflected in the two Erzählungen am Klavier (Legends) Op 5 of 1870, although they do show how much Scharwenka was —ally influenced by Schumann.

from notes by Martin Eastick © 1995

Au cours de ses premières oeuvres, Scharwenka devint plus sûr de ses propres compétences, comme en témoignent les deux Erzählungen am Klavier (Contes pour le piano), op.5, de 1870, tout en dévoilant à quel point il était alors influencé par Schumann.

extrait des notes rédigées par Martin Eastick © 1995

In seinen frühen Werken gewann Xaver Scharwenka sehr bald das Selbstvertrauen in seine schöpferischen Fähigkeiten, was sich in seinen beiden Erzählungen am Klavier, op. 5 von 1870 zeigt, wenn hier auch der starke Einfluß Schumanns noch erkennbar ist.
