About the music edition:
Alfred Švarc (Schwarz) (1907 – 1986) composer and lawyer, belongs among composers who at the time when Croatian music was dominated by the neo-national course chose his own path in composition, based on late Romantic and the then prevailing compositional and technical forms of expression. The more than one hundred works in his oeuvre tend to make great demands on the performer, which is perhaps the reason that only nine works were ever presented to the public during his lifetime, including the two student works First String Quartet (1930) and Etude for Piano (1930), as well as seven works from his maturity: String Quartet in A Major (1951), Fragments from the War for choir (1955), the symphonic poem Song of the Young Hero (1958), the orchestral Overture to a Merry Play (1961), Songs of My Grief for alto and orchestra (1962), Miniatures for Piano (1965) and Concerto for Piano, Violin and Cello (1973). The Piano Sonata Op 11 was written in 1951 when Alfred Švarc was in the full swing of his return to composing. It is a one-movement sonata, with a recognisable sonata form, which includes exposition, development and reprise.
