    Markus Fagerudd: InstruMental 1(2002)

    F. Chopin: Andante Spianato, op.22

    The baroque master Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) composed Capriccio in B minor when he was 19 years old. It is one of the most delightful works by the young compose and a rare example of program music by J.S Bach. Every movement has a title, which is creating a story within the work.

    Finnish composer’s Markus Fagerudd’s InstruMental I (composed 2002) handles of human privacy and a relationship between musician and instrument. The performer must act as if she/he would be alone in a room and would play to itself. The performer chooses the order of the five movements.

    Frédéric Chopin composed Andante Spianato as an introduction to a polonaise 1834 in Paris. In this concert we will only hear the first part of this work, which makes a wonderful solo. Andante is used chiefly as a direction, music should be played in a moderately slow tempo. Spianato means “even”, or “smooth”.

    I would like to thank…
