Example text

Thanks to detailed forward planning by the Polish musical underground during the war, institutions were rapidly established in 1945, including Polish Radio, radio and concert orchestras in various cities, the Polish Composers’ Union (ZKP), and the Polish Music ´ Music schools and conservatories soon folPublishers (PWM) in Krakow. ´ had lowed.

Padlewski, Sonata for solo violin (1941), opening. Koffler’s distancing from the more experimental aspects of Viennese dodecaphony may be seen both as a personal creative evolution and as latterly enforced by circumstances beyond his control. Although both the Symphony and the Ukrainian Sketches still have a high dissonance quotient, the latter work is openly more tonal and, in its use of indigenous melodies, recalls his pre-twelve-note 40 Polish Folk Songs (1925). It is easy, in retrospect, to see Koffler’s abiding devotion to neo-classical gestures as a negative regression from some putative, Second Viennese norm, but there are strong arguments for viewing the technical as well as the aesthetic character of his music as progressive in its synthesis.

Prefaced by a Preludium, there is a sequence of alternating Interludes (slow, soft, una corda) and Studies (fast, loud, tre corde), the cycle beginning on C sharp and moving through the traditional circle of fifths until A flat is reached in the Postludium. Each of the twelve short movements is a variation on a hidden ‘theme’, which is embellished, excerpted or registrally displaced. The scalic and arpeggiated features of this spectral idea lends the set an air of general understatement, in comparison to the high thematic profiles of previous circle-of-fifths models by Bach and Chopin.
