ROXANNA PANUFNIK

Homage to Händel for Solo Violoncello Duration c. 12 minutes 1. Passacaglia Over recent years, I have had the pleasure of doing two arrangements for super-‘cellist HanNa Chang – Yun Joon Kim’s Korean Elegy for ‘cello and orchestra and a very whacky version of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumble Bee. When Han-Na requested an original solo work, she also asked me to re-arrange Johan Halverson’s fantasy on Händel’s Passacaglia, from a duet into a solo ‘cello work, so that she did not have to rely on someone else being around to enable her to play it! Han-Na and I have worked very closely on creating a piece that sounds like it was organically written for ‘cello alone, taking advantage of the instrument’s expansive range in pitch and tone – sometimes combining, sometimes incorporating the original violin part, hopefully conveying the magisterial essence of the original duet. 2. Homage to Händel-Halvorsen It therefore seemed logical that my original piece should grow out of the Händel-Halvorsen. We move straight into the next movement without a break, opening with a statement of the basic melody shape, without the dotted notes, which soon becomes dreamy and chromatic. Each note of the initial theme is numbered (see Example 1) and played upon with arpeggiated major-minor ornamentation. Then a complete re-harmonization of the theme occurs (see Example 2), with a chromatic (inspired by Han-Na’s love for the chromatic Andante variation in the Passacaglia) and bitonal, arppegiated accompaniment. This is followed by a driving ostinato, expanding and contracting the last four notes of the theme, taking us into a highly dramatic fantasy on the last Passacaglia variation, finishing with an intense but loving rendition of the “dreamy” theme. rd © Roxanna Panufnik, 23 October 2006
