Information

The Rhythmic Etudes for violin and piano comes from the same year as the Seven Arabesques for violin and piano, H 201 A., and the Sonata no. 2 for violin and piano, H 208. In contrast with the Arabesques - the work with which they make for easiest comparison - the Rhythmic Etudes concentrate rather on instructing the young musician in rhythm. They are intended for advanced amateurs, and Martinů's piano part here comprises only one stave.
