'the music here could hardly be more sympathetically presented than by Tanyel, whose performances are immaculate in their musicianship and virtuosity' (Gramophone)

'Tanyel's clear enthusiasm for this unhackneyed programme is utterly refreshing … The performance reminds us again just how well she understands the piano's Romantic repertoire' (Classic CD)
The Barcarolle in E minor is one a number of shorter character pieces composed in the early 1870s. Scharwenka uses his thorough knowledge of the piano to good effect with a rich melodic line set above a steady undulating accompaniment.

from notes by Martin Eastick © 1992

La Barcarolle en mi mineur est la première d’une série de compositions plus courtes composées au début des années 1870. Scharwenka utilise à bon escient sa connaissance exhaustive du piano, composant une ligne mélodique riche sur un accompagnement aux ondulations régulières.

extrait des notes rédigées par Martin Eastick © 1992

Die Barkarole in e-Moll gehört zu einer Reihe von kürzeren Charakterstücken, die zu Beginn der siebziger Jahre komponiert wurden. Scharwenka nutzt seine umfassende Kenntnis des Klaviers, um beeindruckende Effekte in einem Stück zu erzielen, in dem sich eine satte melodische Linie über eine regelmäßig auf und ab wiegende Begleitung zieht.
