1994–95 Piano Concerto

Piano Concerto 1
Piano Concerto 2
Piano Concerto 3

 A Concerto for piano and small orchestra. A PWM Edition Konzertfürer says about it: „Formally contracted, virtuoso piece, characterises easy and clear construction. Interesting use of concert values of the piano follows the colour and interesting orchestration together with kaleidoscopic narration. All this shows up the unique, rhapsodic character of the piece. The first movement is based on sonata form treated individually, second is a punctualistic scherzo and third moves gradually from lyric adagio to energetic, virtuoso finale.

Concerto per quartetto 1
Concerto per quartetto 2
Concerto per quartetto 3

 A piece commissioned by a famous Wilanow String Quartet. A rare form of concerto for a string quartet and orchestra. First movement is fast and lively with a virtuosic quartet. Second is dramatic with dialoguing Quartet and orchestra. Third movement, Rondo preceded by a short introduction is related in a perverse manner to blues in a convention far to these used in a jazz music. You can all it “deconstruction of blues”.

2007-2008 Preludes for piano and string orchestra

Preludes for piano 1
Preludes for piano 2
Preludes for piano 3
Preludes for piano 7

 Seven Preludes determine seven different stylistics and references to different époques and places. It’s not easy to decode them all, so here is a handbook to the listener. Prelude I Scorrevole (fluently) represents the figurated, melismatic tune of not only European provenience, Prelude II Adagissimo represents long and intricate mixture of features taken from both Palestrina and Chopin, Prelude III Presto alla barbaresca wants to shock the listener by his apparent brutality, Prelude IV Jazzy relates to jazz harmonies in a classical music form, Prelude V Alla romanesca is based on Balkan authentic and not-authentic folk tradition, Prelude VI Arpeggiata moves us to 17th century German and Italian lutenists and final Prelude VII Vigoroso is a very fast perpetuum mobile, related to baroque dance gigue.
