jesień w Warszawie

By Jakob Thonander Glans


For Solo Piano





Jesień w Warszawie (originally Polish - English translation: Autumn in Warsaw) was written while I was an exchange-student at Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, Poland during the autumn and winter of 2019. The piece reflects on the cold autumn and the experience of being a foreigner in a different culture. The piece also reflects on Warsaw itself, a city with a rich, deep and brutal history, very different from my homeland.

Towards the end of the piece, there is a short quote from Chopin's G minor ballad.
