    s day Romance sans paroles en la bémol majeur Song without words in A flat major 1897 op 29 This piece is of medium difficulty It was first published by Leduc and lasts a good 3 minutes The melodic lines begin in the left hand and then alternate constantly from one hand to the other Méditation 1898 op 33 1 First edition published by Leduc Méditation is dedi cated to Jeanne Monchablon a close friend of the com poser s This purely romantic lyrical piece creates an atmosphere of inwardness and without being technically demanding requires great sensitivity in execution Mel Bonis also published a version for cello or violin and piano with the same publishers at the same time 100 years later in 1998 the latter version was reprinted by the publishers Armiane Versailles Marionnettes 1899 op 42 Due to its flowing tempo allegro molto this piece with a playing time of little more than two minutes requires a particularly light touch and dexterity in execu tion in order to lend expression to its motion its gaiety its contrasts and its drollery One finds oneself involun tarily comparing the piece with Moustique Marionnettes was first published by Eugène Demets in Paris in 1899 Carillons mystiques Mystical carillons op 31 A four bar phrase recurring on an ostinato bass through out the entire duration of the piece is reminiscent of a carillon With frequent modulations and ornamental variations in the right hand it reproduces the wide range of sound of the carillon finally coming to rest and re turning to the key in which it opened Carillons maystiques dedicated to Raoul Pugno a famous Pari sian pianist of the day was first published in 1898 by Alphonse Leduc The piece is of medium difficulty and lasts about three minutes Barcarolle en si bémol majeur in B major op 41 posthumous Mel Bonis obviously did not intend Barcarolle for publication Yet despite the composer s critical attitude towards certain parts of the piece which can be seen from her cutting out the middle section in D major and her note MAUVAIS bad she still kept the manu script In spite of these reservations on the composer s part we discover a very well written first theme and an interesting musical development Barcarolle en si si bémol majeur is undoubtedly the first of the four Bar carolles that Mel Bonis composed The manuscript was written in 1899 the year in which Barcarolle Etude op 43 see Pièces de concert was also published by Leduc The third is Barcarolle en mi bémol op 71 dated 1906 see Pièces de concert and the last Barca rolle en sol bémol op 134 remains only in the form of a draft from the year 1930 containing the note The manuscript is at Eschig where we looked for it in vain The piece lasts four minutes and is technically not easy to play Sorrente op 61 Sorrente is a mélodrame en miniature an art form that was

    version appeared at the same time The manuscript of the solo piano version dates from 1903 Pavane was the only piece to be ar ranged for piano for four hands This version appeared in the magazine L Illustration on 24 February 1906 i e three years before publication of the other versions by Demets The pavane is actually a ceremonial courtly step dance from the 16th century Mel Bonis like many other composers of the Belle Epoque drew upon the past in keeping with the fashion of the times The four handed version of this dance in the old style brings out the interest ing polyphonic form of the composition extremely well The piece lasts a good three minutes and makes no particular technical demands In the final edition Pavane is dedicated to Edouard Domange Mel Bonis youngest son Six Valses Caprice opus 87 This comprises a group of six waltzes which at one moment rousing at an other tender are very contrasting in character The popularity of these pieces with performers and audiences alike lies both in their accessibility and the rela tively simple style and in their easily remembered melodies The manuscript dates from 1910 the first edition by Poulalion in Paris from 1911 Mel Bonis dedicated the work to the little Domanges i e the grandchildren of her hus band Albert Domange Le Songe de Cléopâtre opus 180 1 This long piece in a much more complex and modern style forms an exception amongst all the composer s four handed works It is an adaptation of an orches tral score into a piece for four hands Cleopatra s Dream is one of three or chestral pieces which we have collected under the title Portraits of three women All the characteristics of the major works from the composer

    published in 2001 by Armiane Lasting almost three minutes the piece has to be played sensitively but is not highly demanding in technical terms Il pleut It is raining op 102 It is quite obvious that Il pleut composed in 1913 is a pleasurable reminiscence of a piece written ten years before by Debussy Jardins sous la pluie Gardens in the Rain This assumption is sup ported by astonishing parallels in structure and con tent for example the use of a folk song Il était une bergère by Mel Bonis and of Dodo l enfant do by Debussy at the centre of this short piece Il pleut was published by Maurice Sénart as part of his collection La Musique contemporaine in 1913 It is dedicated to her daughter Madeleine who was an excellent amateur pianist Au crépuscule At dusk op 111 Like the previous piece Mel Bonis dedicated this to her daughter Madeleine The manuscript contains the dedication To my little friend Madeleine along with the year of composition 1922 It was published by Hamelle in Paris in 1923 The melody is divided between both hands which alternate in playing the melody and accompaniment thus representing the changing shades of colour in the evening sky A final flicker of light from the sun is intimated by a poco a poco crescendo ed animato and leads to a piano subito that precedes the arpeggiating return to the opening key and mood Lasting a good three minutes this piece is of medium difficulty Près du moulin By the mill op 115 In Près du moulin one can imagine hearing the rattling of the mill wheel and particularly in the arpeggiating middle section one feels transported to a landscape presented in an impressionistic manner The piece was first published by Maurice Sénart in Paris in 1925 It lasts about 2½ minutes and is un problematic in terms of performance Ariel op 129 posthumous Ariel is one of the pieces that clearly reflect the doubts affecting the composer during the creative process several attempts in different keys and tempos were made and discarded again and for the eventual ity of publication Bonis had chosen a pseudonym Melás Benissouvski a joking distortion of her own name In the end the last manuscript dated 1925 and on which this edition is based was left lying in a drawer The piece is full of charm but is not easy to play Dolorosa op 138 posthumous Mel Bonis wrote this piece soon after the untimely death of her son Edouard who died in tragic circum stances during a business trip to Egypt in 1932 She dedicated it to her daughter in law the young widow Françoise Domange The long melodic strands with delayed chords give expression to her deep pain at the loss of her beloved son Dolorosa was published by Armiane in 2001 Cinq pièces pour piano à Madeleine Quinet Some 40 years after Cinq pièces musicales pub lished by Durdilly and 30 years after Cinq pièces

    Interlude et Bacchanale op 39 The suite is a well structured salon type work of intermediate difficulty although some of the pieces call for a certain degree of virtuosity if they are to be played at an appropriate tempo The music with its slight orientalist flavour emanates an air of elegant nonchalance The entire suite takes about 15 minutes to perform Mel Bonis put a lot of work into this composition and she published it simultaneously in several different versions an arrangement for a large symphony orchestra one for piano after the orchestral suite and one for piano with four hands In all three cases the configuration of the pieces is different 1 The orchestral version comes in two separate volumes The first contains Ballabile Interlude et Valse lente and Scherzo Valse and the second Danse sacrée 2 The three pieces in the first orchestral volume Ballabile Scherzo Valse and Interlude et Valse lente were published individually in 1899 with the remark Reduction of the Suite d orchestre en forme de Valses for solo piano 3 We have discovered two different volumes published in 1898 of the arrangement for four handed piano The first was found in the family archives and consists of four pieces in the following order Ballabile Danse sacrée Scherzo Valse Interlude et Valse lente The second can be found in the Bibliothèque Nationale de Musique in Paris and consists of five pieces as follows Ballabile Valse lente Scherzo Valse Danse sacrée Interlude et Bacchanale For the four handed version in this edition we had to make a choice and we decided to base it on the afore mentioned version in the Bibliothèque Nationale de Musique As the Interlude that precedes the Valse lente in the first volume is identical to the Interlude of the Bacchanale apart

    pieces not terribly difficult to execute Ordered chronologically like its anniversary companion above the works are suitable for the intermediate pianist with a bit of wiggle room on either side some are a little easier than intermediate level some are a little harder All of the compositions are thoughtfully edited The compositions shows a wide range of atmosphere and required touch There are dances Contre danse by Szymanowska Polonaise by Zumsteeg Marche Russe by Chaminade and Bush Gin Rag by Olive mood pieces Nocturne by Farren and Klavierstück by Hensel and even one that includes improvisatory passages and a Turkish air The piano and vocal volumes are equally compelling purchases Ellen Grolman Journal of the IAWM Vol 17 Nr 2 2011 The pianoforte the keyboard instrument which can be played both softly and loudly was so called because it was such a ground breaking invention It has outstripped every other instrument in that there is no other for which so much music has been written Although English and French use the familiar short form piano this is not to suggest that it is only played softly The German Klavier likewise lacks any allusion to the crucial contrast of forte and piano It is simply taken for granted and requires no further mention However the more we thought about this universal instrument the more we were inspired to select some pieces which owe their genesis to this polarity of piano and forte In anniversary mood 25 years of Furore Verlag we cast our collective eye back celebrating 250 years of the pianoforte with piano pieces which place particular emphasis on the sense of tone The fact that the tone can only be influenced by touch and not by any mechanical device means that music can be performed on different levels at
