Bartók, Béla (on a theme by)
Description:
Program note (English): Béla Bartók composed his monumental Sonata for solo violin in 1944. It is the last work he completed himself (unlike his Piano Concerto No. 3 and his Viola Concerto). These Cinq Réflexions are based on the first five bars of the Sonata's third movement, Melodia. Each 'réflexion' quotes the motif in its own way, either literally, like No. 1, or backwards and incomplete, like No. 4. No. 5, instead, reproduces the structure of the first three bars of the original theme, but starting on the A Flat in the middle, and 'borrowing' notes from right and left alternately, using later a second point of departure. These and other ways of re-inventing the theme are found not only at the beginning, but throughout each piece as well. It is a coincidence that B (natural), which does not figure in the theme, only appears in the first and last movements, as an involuntary allusion to the composer's initials B.B. In addition, it is also a coincidence that Cinq Réflexions was composed on the 50th
anniversary of Bartók's death. Yet I should like to consider it as a personal homage to one of the greatest musical minds of all times. - CARLOS MICHÁNS
