Nuit exotique


Nuit exotique was one of several written at a time in which Bloch explored the theme of ‘night’. The long sensual theme with which the work begins and ends is separated by a middle section consisting of shorter and sharper motifs. Josef Szigeti was the dedicatee.

Nuit exotique fait partie de ces pièces que Bloch consacra à l’exploration de la «nuit». Le long thème sensuel qui l’ouvre et la ferme est séparé par une section médiane constituée de motifs plus courts et incisifs. Josef Szygeti en fut le dédicataire.

Français: Hypérion

Nuit exotique war eines der Stücke aus jener Zeit, in denen Bloch das Thema Nacht erkundete. Das lange, sinnliche Thema, mit dem das Werk beginnt und schließt, wird von einem aus kürzeren und schärferen Motiven bestehenden Mittelteil unterbrochen. Der Widmungsträger ist Josef Szigeti.
