Rondo in E major, H265 Wq57/1

composer
1781

 
In the E major rondo (Wq57/1), the quality of pastels juxtaposes perfectly with the sudden key changes and modulations slyly introduced in the various returns of the theme and alternating couplets. Likewise, the ability to change the colours of single notes offers a level of artistic leeway wherein the performer can play recurring thematic material in different ways and thus play upon various layers of memory and expectation built into rondo form.

Dans le rondo en mi majeur (Wq57/1), la qualité de pastels se juxtapose parfaitement aux soudains changements de tonalité et aux modulations malicieusement introduits dans les divers retours du thème et dans les couplets alternés. De même, l’aptitude à modifier individuellement les couleurs des notes offre un niveau de liberté de manœuvre artistique où l’interprète peut présenter un matériel thématique récurrent de différentes manières et jouer ainsi sur diverses couches de mémoire et d’attentes inscrites dans la forme rondo.

Im E-Dur-Rondo (Wq57/1) stehen pastellartige Töne in perfektem Gegensatz zu den plötzlichen Tonartwechseln und Modulationen, die in den verschiedenen Wiederholungen des Themas und den alternierenden Couplets geschickt eingeführt werden. Ebenso bietet die Möglichkeit, die Klangfarben einzelner Töne zu variieren, einen künstlerischen Spielraum, der es dem Interpreten erlaubt, wiederkehrendes thematisches Material auf unterschiedliche Weise zu spielen und so mit diversen, in die Rondoform eingebauten, Erinnerungs- und Erwartungsschichten zu spielen.
