Arabesque is an intricate piece. Its dance-measure is essentially decorative, but there are occasional hints of drama, and it builds to a powerful and unexpectedly virtuosic ending.

from notes by Calum MacDonald © 1996

Arabesque est une pièce complexe. Sa mesure de danse est essentiellement décorative, ce qui n’exclut pas d’occasionnelles touches théâtrales, et elle se construit jusqu’à une fin puissante, d’une virtuosité inattendue.

extrait des notes rédigées par Calum MacDonald © 1996
Français: Hypérion

Arabesque ist ein anspruchsvoll Stück. Der Tanzrhythmus ist im wesentlichen dekorativ und hat zuweilen den Hauch eines Dramas. Das volle Werk steigert sich zu einem ausdrucksvollen und unerwartet virtuosen Abschluß.
