Tyrolean Dances from Deutsche Tänze Op.33 (Arr. Stokowski)

Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

Tyrolean Dances from Deutsche Tänze Op.33 (Arr Stokowski)

Leopold Stokowski (1882-1977) was well known for his arrangement of piano music for orchestra, having arranged and recorded a number of Schubert’s keyboard works. His efforts began in 1922 with the arrangement and performance of a small selection of Schubert’s Deutsche Tänzes, and ended some years later with the production of the ‘Tyrolean Dances’, as they are heard here.

Between 1823 and 1824 Schubert composed a collection of 16 Deutsche Dances and 2 Ecossaises (D783) for piano, and each of them reflects a different element of German music and culture. Stokowski chose to arrange those that capture the spirit of the Tyrolean region, and influences such as yodelling songs, peasant waltzes and nationalistic melodies can be heard.
