Fünf frühe Klavierstücke

for piano solo

Description

First performance: 24 January 2017 – Budapest,
Misi Boros, piano
(only Hommage à Haydn)

 

Peter Eötvös completed his early neo-classical Hungarian piano pieces at the age of 17. Now published in one volume, they were created when he studied composition at the Budapest Music Academy between 1959 and 1961, shortly before taking up a scholarship to study conducting in Cologne. A highlight is the witty three-movement Hommage à Haydn in which he humorously satirizes the famous Sonata in D major, nightmare of many a piano student, among others.
