Second home

First line:
Hejze Ino! Fijołecku leśny!
author of text
traditional Polish

Written as a solo piece for the Polish pianist Eva Kupiec, Second home is based on a folksong from Poland, which effectively is Panufnik’s second home through the heritage of her father, the composer Sir Andrzej Panufnik. The version for piano quintet and soprano was commissioned by Pro Musica Mundi and premiered in a concert celebrating both Poland’s EU presidency in 2011 and the memory of Andrzej Panufnik on the 20th anniversary of his death. This piece presents four variations on the song 'Hejze ino! Fijołecku leśny' ('Hail, woodland violet!'). The soprano sings the words in their original rural dialect.
