Mussorgsky: The Seamstress (Scherzino), IMM 60
by Igor Alexeyevich Komarov
One might best consider "The Seamstress" Mussorgsky's answer to Mendelssohn's 'Lieder ohne worte' entitled "Spinning Song". Both are small scherzos, going 'in moto perpetuo' in their depiction of the activity of the title. Mussorgsky wrote his "Seamstress" in January 1871, before setting to work on the second version of "Boris Godunov". It was his most advanced and technically difficult piano piece before that time, and requires a real virtuoso to play it - in contrast to his earlier piano pieces, which were (with the exception of "Intermezzo in modo classico") merely salon pieces of trifling difficulty.
