My brother gave me the decisive tip. He listened to the same piece for an entire evening and was obsessed with it: Can't you make something out of it? That was his question. I did make something out of it. I was equally taken by this song .... this melody, this melancholy ..... and then there was the composition by Frederic Rzweski - 30 variations on this folk song and - as if it wasn't enough - the fantastic recording of this 1-hour work by none other than Marc-André Hamelin, the world's greatest pianist.
With a huge bow to Rzweski and Hamelin, I made something of it.
A fugue of 4 minutes playing time, even by my standards with extraordinary counterpoint - I was obsessed ...... It begins harmlessly with the exposition of the powerful theme. and all 4 voices enter one after the other, ending their lively, polyphonic romp in bar 42. Now follows a musical quotation, namely from the exposition of Rzweski's variations. With a small but fine upper voice, which I have taken the liberty of adding. May Frederic not be angry with me for this. But after this quotation, I speak up again, and I really want to let the forces of gravity tug at the wonderful theme. I just let myself drift, listened to my inner self and noted what it speaks to me. From bar 67 onwards, a chromatically descending line in the soprano develops into a lively bustle in which you can really feel gravity. Finally, the main motif in C major plays in the pedal and the whole thing leads from bar 84 onwards to an organ point, which I have played for the piano forte in quarter syncopations. Which brings us to another theme. My composition is scored for organ, but it sounds most effective on the pianoforte; I could also imagine it for piano 4 hands, with the pedal part played in octaves. In honour of Frederic Rzweski, the coda is another quotation from his exposition of the 30 variations, only I have added the tenor part for amplification.Could not have built a better coda:
