Three Mazurkas, Op 64

composer
1943; dedicated to Herrn und Frau Walter Zdrahal

 
The last piano works Bortkiewicz composed during the war years were his Three Mazurkas, Op 64 (1943, dedicated to Herrn und Frau Walter Zdrahal). Although these three pieces are strikingly different in character, each of them inhabits Bortkiewicz’s distinctive soundworld.

Les dernières œuvres pour piano de Bortkiewicz composées pendant la guerre furent ses Trois Mazurkas, op.64 (1943, dédiées à Herrn und Frau Walter Zdrahal). Même si ces trois morceaux ont un caractère très différent, chacun d’entre eux s’inscrit dans le monde sonore caractéristique de Bortkiewicz.

Die letzten Klavierstücke, die Bortkiewicz in den Kriegsjahren komponiert hat, waren seine Drei Mazurken, op. 64 (1943, Herrn und Frau Walter Zdrahal gewidmet). Obgleich diese drei Stücke auffallend unterschiedlich im Charakter sind, ist jedes von Bortkiewicz’ unverkennbarer Klangwelt erfült.
