Musician's or Publisher's Notes
In 1827 Schubert
composed eight impromptus, which are collected in the composers' opuses 90 and
142 (numbers 899 and 935 in the Deutsch Catalogue). A year later he added three more pieces under the title "Three
Piano Pieces"; these are 946 in the catalogue.
Impromptu No. 3 in C Major is the shortest of the three, and is a lively piece (allegro) in 2/4.
The main section exhibits a great deal of syncopation.
The trio is in two sections with repeats written out in a varied form. It is in
D-flat major and 3/2 time with no change in tempo indication. There is a
substantial coda, again with syncopation.
