Programme Note
Witold Lutosławski Dance Preludes [Preludia taneczne] (1954),
DANCE PRELUDES

DANCE PRELUDES were written in 1954 for Clarinet and Piano.

Although the work is based on folksongs from Northern Poland, the folk element minglesindecipherably with the composer’s customary skill, resulting in five little movements of considerable charm, lasting for about seven minutes. The individual movements are:

I. Allegro molto
II. Andantino
III. Allegro giocoso
IV. Andante
V. Allegro molto

In 1955, the composer reworked the DANCE PRELUDES for Clarinet and orchestra and four years later produced a third version scored for Wind Quintet and Solo Strings.
