Moritz Moszkowski enjoyed a considerable international reputation as a composer and pianist and was fęted as the natural successor to Chopin. It is a mark of his music’s success that it was arranged for countless ensembles and solo instruments.

French violinist Émile Sauret transformed the popular Spanish Dances into virtuoso showpieces filled with all manner of impressive elaborations, Jascha Heifetz similarly turning Etincelles or ‘Sparks’ into something brilliantly light and twinkling.

The interaction of two violins makes the Suite highly dramatic, contrasting with the fine lyrical melody of Moszkowski’s Serenata.
