This work was written for flutist, Adrianna Lis, for performances and a CD recording. It is based on three Polish dance pieces:
- Slaski comes from, a folk song from the area in Poland where Adrianna Lis was born. The version I based my piece on was performed by Chlopaki Chlopaki.
- Mazurka in A minor, op.68, No.2 (posthumous) by Chopin. This was chosen to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Chopin’s birth.
- Polka Szabasowka, not originally from Poland but adopted by Polish folk performers. The version I based my piece on was performed on piano accordian by Miroslaw Marks.
These dances were transcribed as used as a basis for free re-composition.
