Six Waltzes, Op 28


The Six Waltzes Op 28 date from the mid 1870s and are more in the manner of a suite and should be considered and performed as one work rather than as separate items. Scharwenka provides contrast as each of the waltzes is divided into smaller sections, some of which appear more than once throughout the set.

Les Six Valses op.28 datent des années 1873-1876 et se présentent sous forme de suite: il est préférable de les considérer et de les jouer comme une seule oeuvre plutôt que comme des morceaux séparés. Scharwenka y ménage des contrastes en divisant chaque valse en sections plus courtes, dont certaines reviennent plusieurs fois au cours de la série.

extrait des notes rédigées par Martin Eastick © 1995

Die Sechs Walzer, op. 28 aus der Mitte der siebziger Jahre sind eher in der Art einer Suite angelegt und sollten als Gesamtwerk betrachtet und gespielt werden, und nicht als Einzelstücke. Scharwenka bietet dabei viele Gegensätze, denn jeder der WaIzer ist in kleinere Abschnitte unterteilt, die in der Suite oft mehrfach auftauchen.
