Bujor Hoinic (RO/TR) – Frühlingsideen
Bujor Hoinic about his piano piece “Frühlingsideen”:
“”Frühlingsideen” for piano, is a little piece inspired by the “Spring Sonata” for violin and piano by L. v. Beethoven. The first 4 bars of these variations are the main theme (in F major) followed by 5 variations. The first variation contains counterpoint style and new harmonisation to the theme. The second variation in D minor, the theme comes in a more romantic style but the third variation contrasts the previous music. L’istesso tempo has a march character. Finally the last variation uses the theme in a rude and extreme quick tempo until the last 8 bars in which it returns to the pastoral and calm athmosphere of the Spring Sonata.”
