Work introduction

“commentum: ‘comment, interpretation, invention, fabrication, fiction’, in classical Latin; neut. pp. of comminisci ‘to contrive, devise’, from com-, intensive prefix + base of meminisse (to remember).

Commentum is a free rendition of Chopin’s Introduction after listening to it again. Without any alterations, predilections and attempts at ‘modernisation’, but rather like a spontaneous expression of one’s personal opinion.

It was written for David Geringas and Ian Fountain as a commission from the Vilnius Festival.”

(Vykintas Baltakas)

World première 2 June 2011 at the Vilnius Festival.
