Program notes

Original: Chopin op. 17 No. 4


"Vibraphone and marimba - those singing percussions - always drew my attention. For this piece I used the ideas I had previously penciled in the 70ies with the Mazurka for piano solo, the principal of reshaping as the essential compositional procedure. It is an obsessive memory of my own youthful days when piano and Chopin have been my everyday partners. Fascination with that very piece grew into an imperative: techniques of quoting and dissolving of selected and meticulously elaborated edits and mixes deals exclusively with tones and intervals which shape contours to the ailing atmosphere of Chopin's Mazurka." (I.K.)
