Polish Fantasy. BR 0028
The unifying elements here are Polish. Paderewski, Penderecki and Blumental were born in Poland. For a concertante work of the period, Paderewski's Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 17 leans toward a bucolic simplicity, harking back to the piano concertos of Chopin and Grieg in terms of influence. Polish rhythms abound, most notably the mazurka, while much of the melodic material is imbued with the Polish folksong tradition. The Fantaisie polonaise, Op. 19 is a lively, folksy and, above all, avowedly virtuoso showpiece packed full of Polish dances from the krakowiak to the kujawiak.

The Partita was commissioned from Penderecki for the fiftieth anniversary of the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, and was premiered there in 1971 by its dedicatee, Felicja Blumental. The instrumentation alone of the Partita gives us fair warning that we are in for an eclectic surprise. The work is scored for harpsichord, electric guitar, bass guitar, double bass and orchestra, all of which suggests a cross between the concertino / ripieno division of a typical baroque concerto grosso and the line-up for a jazz outfit.
