Cui (1835-1918) was a nember of the group of Russian composers known as 'The Five' or 'Mighty Handful'. Like most of the other members he was not a full-time musician and was actually a Russian army general, and expert on fortifications. He was nevertheless a prolific composer. 'À Argenteau' is a set of nine pieces from 1887 - musical reminiscences of the Belgian estate of his patron, Louise, Comptesse de Mercy-Argenteau. 'Dolce far Niente' can be translated as 'carefree ideleness'. Rheinberger included a piece with the same title in his suite 'Aus Italien'. Glazounov later orchestrated five movements from Cui's suite- but not this one (the second in the piano suite).
