“Für Mileva” … For Mileva


“Für Mileva” features a series of stately chords leading into a cascade of flowing notes which herald
the beautiful melody which is the focal point of this piece. It should be played with delicate emotion including subtle rubato nuances.  Some practice will be needed to keep the thirds smooth and the unbroken pattern of broken chords at an even tempo. In bars 13 and 14  as well as in bars 24 to 28, there are some interesting syncopations.   Count carefully and keep the pulse  …  the syncopations should be subtle.

♥  “Für Mileva”  follows a lovely old tradition of dedicating music to people admired by the composer.  Mileva Maric who was Albert Einstein’s first wife, was a Serbian mathematician who as companion, colleague and confident was enormously  influential in his most creative years.  She eventually subordinated her professional goals to his career.  Today there is considerable debate over her importance in his early work, many relegating her to the background as a wife of a genius and others feeling that history has overlooked a brilliant woman. I support the latter  opinion.
