Description

This work was composed originally in 1992 for the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson-Trio on commission by the Helsinki Festival, where it was premiered. The piece is in memory of Oleg Kagan, who was a friend of Arvo Pärt's and one of Russia's leading violinists. Kagan had a special affinity with the music of Mozart and the composer memorialises the violinist by transcribing one of the most affecting movements of the youthful composer's piano sonatas, the Adagio from the Sonata in F Major, K. 280.

Reviews

Pärt vertieft stellenweise Mozarts Satz, verdichtet den Ausdruck und schafft mit ganz persönlichen stilistischen Elementen auf eine einfühlsame Art eine ergreifende und dem Trauergestus entsprechende Musik, die bis auf einige Spitzentöne der Klarinette (d4!) die Interpreten weniger technisch als vor allem musikalisch fordert. Die Universal Edition hat vorbildlich anstelle von Einzelstimmen Stimmhefte für die Melodieinstrumente erstellt.
