Dora Pejačević (10 September 1885 -- 5 March 1923): Walzer-Capricen, Suite for Piano, Op. 28, written in 1910. Performed by Yoko Nishii in 2013 (live)
These excellent inventive little piano pieces, in the form of a piano suite, are a high-point in the solo-piano oeuvre of Pejačević.
They are full of imagination; a listener will be surprised by how different of character they are,
even though most of them don't exceed 1-2 minutes in length.
