Product details

Although only two of the pieces presented in this collection carry the title Impromptu, many of the other works possess an improvisatory quality. Beethoven's simply constructed 'easy' sonata may well have been a written out improvisation that only became published years later when the composer realised that his encroaching deafness made his future more dependent on composition and publication than
on public performance. And we might fairly describe as 'doodling' the manner of commencement of Mozart's Fantasia in D minor, the two Spanish pieces and the first four of the Debussy selections.
