Tre canti

1924; for cello and piano; transcribed for violin and piano by the composer

Pizzetti’s Tre canti were written in 1924, originally for cello and piano, then transcribed by the composer for violin. This is much less ambitious music, conceived on a smaller scale and at a lower emotional temperature than the Violin Sonata, but exuding considerable charm in the first two pieces, and becoming more dramatic in the third.

Pizzetti rédigea ses Tre canti pour violoncelle et piano en 1924, avant de les transcrire pour violon. Comparé à la Sonate, ils sont bien moins ambitieux, conçus à moindre échelle et avec moins de fièvre émotionnelle, mais exsudent énormément de charme dans les deux premiers morceaux, le troisième prenant un tour plus dramatique.

Pizzettis Tre canti wurden 1924 zuerst für Cello und Klavier geschrieben und danach vom Komponisten für Violine transkribiert. Diese Musik ist weit weniger anspruchsvoll, kürzer und weniger emotional als die Violinsonate, verströmt aber beträchtlichen Charme in den ersten beiden Stücken, und wird im dritten zunehmend dramatisch.
