Étincelles, Op 36 No 6


Moritz Moskowski’s Étincelles is surely a pastiche of Scarlatti and, as Hough sends its reeling figuration at one point plunging rather than soaring, you can sense how such an elfin touch would have wreathed the composer’s face with the broadest of smiles.

from notes by Bryce Morrison © 1999

Étincelles de Moritz Moszkowski est, assurément, un pastiche de Scarlatti et Stephen Hough faisant, à un moment, plonger et non s’élancer sa figuration tournoyante, nous pouvons sentir combien une si délicate nuance aurait illuminé le visage du compositeur.

Français: Hypérion

Moritz Moskowskis Étincelles ist mit Sicherheit ein Scarlatti-Pasticcio, und wenn Hough dessen schwirrende Figuration an einer Stelle abtauchen statt ansteigen läßt, ist zu spüren, daß sich in Anbetracht einer derart elfenhaft empfindsamen Handhabung das Gesicht des Komponisten zum breiten Lächeln verzogen hätte.
