PWM Edition presents another installment in Series A of The Complete Works of Henryk Wieniawski, a collection encompassing his entire extant compositional legacy. Legende was written in 1859, and is an instrumental lyrical piece in ABA structure. One of Wieniawski's most popular works, Legende is constructed simply but its sentimental and melancholy nature makes it a perfect example of the piece de salon. Critical edition score; performance materials not yet available.
