Peter Paul Koprowski

Rhapsody on a Theme of Brahms, 1990

Commissioned by: CBC

“The work did indeed evoke the florid scalar passages and plunging chords of arch-romantic piano style. A few sharp-eared audience members recognized the camouflaged Brahms Lullaby.” Mark Perry, Winnipeg Sun, January 21, 1992

Rhapsody on a Theme of Brahms is a very Chopinesque treatment of the Brahms Lullaby which permeates every aspect of the work. The theme in its original form only surfaces occasionally, but its rhythms and melodic intervals appear in various transformations – sometimes upside-down or backwards – throughout this emotionally charged piece.”

Premiere Information:
January, 1992, Winnipeg, Man.; Christina Petrowska, piano.
