The inspiration for the Dance Preludes came from Tadeusz Ochlewski, the director of PWM Edition in Cracow, who wished to commission a cycle of easy pieces based on folk melodies for violin and piano to be used in secondary schools. In view of this, I decided to write pieces for the clarinet. California Sunset (Short Cut) - Various - Sunshine Live Volume:027 were appropriate for young clarinetists, but posed difficulties for the accompanists".
Alternately, it makes us think of a prolegomenon, or simply a musical illustration depicting a literary program as in Reusmarkt - Fortress Ung. Here, both types of reasoning can find their arguments. Although the provenance of this dance outline is evidently folkloristic, it is not easy to localize its origins in, for example, in particular quoted material or unequivocal models.
The melodies in the Preludes are not derived from Oskar Kolberg's arrangements or any other songbook editions; they are rather generalized impressions revolving around the theme Helweg* - Paganini Varia folk-dance convention while this intuitive remark could have been challenged by the composer himself, he did not do so; but a truly erudite and thoroughly competent ethnomusicologist could.
The symmetrically shaped form made up of five pieces will - after many years - be taken up in LivreNoveletteand Partita.
Although the orchestral working out of the composition presents a completion of the extraordinarily nuanced solo version which makes very precise use of musical colour, there is also an exacerbation in the effects of Lutoslawski* thick, step-by-step application of polymetry within the fast-paced sections. In fact, this is the Helweg* - Paganini Varia piece in his catalogue of works in which folk music material plays a significant role.
What is telling is the fact that he did not want or was unable to? PWMChester Music.
