Looking for something to do after finishing a song cycle of poems by P.B. Shelley but translated into Italian by Roberto Ascoli, I stumbled upon Erich Wolfgang Korngold's Suite opus 23 for violin, viola, cello and piano left hand. The work was commissioned by Paul Wittgenstein, who famously commissioned Ravel to write his world renowned Piano Concerto for the Left Hand in 1930.

I was inspired by the Suite opus 23 for its many dance related movements.

1. Präludium und Fuge
2. Walzer
3. Groteske
4. Lied
5. Rondo - Finale

My work will follow suit and also be dance related. The title of my work will be Tanzsuite für E.W.K., with the same instrumentation albeit for piano with both hands.

1. Präeludium ... Moderato
2. Intermezzo I ... Adagio
3. Groteske ... Presto TRIO
4. Lied ... Largo
5. Walzer ... Allegro
6. Intermezzo II ... Agitato TRIO
7. Nachtmusik ... Largo
