Piano Quintet No. 1, for piano & string quartet (incorporating the BACH motif)
[Kraków: Polskie Wydawn. Muzyczne, 1953]

 

1953

The quintet represents the height of Bacewicz's Bartók phase - a masterpiece of the last century. It uses several Bartókian gestures and inhabits the same emotional territory. The quintet's opening, for example, is right out of the Concerto for Orchestra and the Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta. A slow rising, from deep within the ensemble, leading to a burst of energy. Nevertheless, there's something very individual hear, which comes out in the lyrical portions of the score, and a wit, including playing around with the B-A-C-H motif (B flat - A - C - B, in the key of C).
