Larghetto

Recently I’ve been experimenting with compositions that have a theme and variations form. I originally planned this particular piece to be written entirely for the piano. However, I then thought the variations would be more interesting if I made two of them into violin / piano duets. The result is ‘Larghetto’ – so named because it is a soulful melody with a slow tempo. I composed this piece when I was 10 years old.

W ostatnim czasie troche eksperymentowalem z utworami, w ktorych pojawia sie glowny motyw i rozne wariacje. Tym razem planowalem napisac utwor tylko na fortepian. Ale pomyslalem sobie, ze moze wariacje beda bardziej interesujace jesli zagraja je w duecie skrzypce i fortepian. Rezultatem jest “Larghetto”, nazwane tak, bo ma pelna uczucia melodie w powolnym tempie. Skomponowalem ten utwor kiedy mialem 10 lat.

Larghetto is written in E flat Minor and has a theme, followed by three variations of that theme, and finally a coda. The theme and 2nd variation are played by the solo piano while the violin accompanies the rest. All of the sections are lyric except for the dramatic 2nd variation.

If you are a composer, have you ever started writing a song with one instrument in mind only to end up including different instruments? If so, please share your experience in the comments section below.

Larghetto jest napisane w Es-Dur i ma glowny motyw, po czym nastepuja 3 jego wariacje, i na koncu koda. Glowny motyw i druga wariacja sa grane tylko przez pianino a skrzypce asystuja calej reszcie. Wszystkie sekcje sa lyriczne poza druga dramatyczna wariacja.

Jesli jestes kompozytorem, czy kiedykolwiek zaczales pisac utwor tylko na jeden instrument, a skonczyles wlaczajac tez inne instrumenty? Jesli tak, podziel sie swoimi doswiadczeniami ponizej.
