Work Introduction

Webern composed the Four Pieces in 1910; he made the definitive revision in 1914. Stylistically, they are aphorisms, extremely dense, concentrated in substance and form; they are only 9, 24, 14 and 15 bars long respectively.

In my arrangement, I attempted to bundle this concentrated energy with instrumental colours, to accentuate contrasts and textures and to juxtapose this differentiated sonic world with the solo violin, which reproduces Webern’s original text, unchanged in its virtuosity and expressiveness and exploring the greatest variety of violin sounds.
