All performances at the Kennedy Center will go on as scheduled, but our public hours are curtailed. This dazzling arrangement of Paganini’s 24th Caprice owes its existence to circumstances that were tragic indeed.

During the wartime occupation of Poland by the Nazis, the entire musical life of Warsaw had to go underground. Together with his friend and fellow composer Andrzej PanufnikLutoslawski formed a piano duo, performing a repertoire that included many new arrangements of well-known classic works.


Paganini Variations (Full Score)

Most of these arrangements got lost during the Warsaw uprising, but the Paganini variations survived and achieved great popularity with pianists all over the world.

To a greater degree than other composers inspired by the famous Paganini theme from Brahms to Rachmaninoff, Lutoslawski stayed fairly close to the structure of the original work; each variation written by the great Italian violin virtuoso is clearly recognizable in this “updated” version. Yet Lutoslawski added a great many novel harmonic “spices” and introduced many ingenious pianistic effects to match the fireworks in the original.
