Two Works for Piano: Fantasia and Introduction and Variations on Non Pìu Mesta
Introduction & Variations on "Non Pìu Mesta"
Olivia Dussek Buckley (mid 1790s-1845) was daughter of composers Jan Ladislav Dussek and Sophia Dussek. She had a successful career as a composer, harpist, organist, and pianist. These works contrast the flamboyant and dramatic with lilting rondos, folk-like melodies, melodic inventiveness, cadenzas, and arpeggiations.
