Romance in D major, Op 23
The Romance in D major Op 23 (1910), first performed in Warsaw in April 1913, already reveals a considerable advance towards the exotic, strangely inward exaltation of mature works. Both more rhapsodic in conception and more elliptical in its harmonic processes, it moves relatively early towards an opulent climax before retreating into the introspection of the opening, only to rise a second time. In a rapt conclusion the violin line soars ever higher into the stratosphere.
