Here we heard miniatures from composers not renowned for their piano music: Traumerei by a young Richard Strauss, its pianistic colours adorning orchestral textures: Wagner's Albumblatt
in C major, emotionally rich and judiciously balanced in performance; and Bruckner's clumsily-structured Erinnerung, Hough's weighty, organ-like left hand underlining almost orchestral progressions.
Montreal, April 8th 1896 Liliencorn, Albumblatt
Ferdinand Freiherr von Preludium Little, Arthur Arthur Reginald Little Reginald No.
It is believed that the piece titled Albumblatt
, was composed by Brahms in 1853, when he was 20 years old.
His programme in the Forum Theatre will bring some rarities: Albumblatt
by Richard Wagner (this composer of great, monumental operas did also produce some instrumental trifles, including two early symphonies), Erinnerungen (Remembrances) by Bruckner and Traumerei by Richard Strauss.
