Description

Impromptu for violin and piano (H. 166, Paris 1927) begins a new creative period in the life of Bohuslav Martinů. It consists of three short character pieces dotted with daring bitonal chords, balancing as a whole on the very edge of tonality. The composer pitted the more or less diatonic violin part against the greatly dissonant piano. The piece is the first time Martinů appealed to beginning musicians, to whom he decided to give easier access to modern music.
