Triptych for Harpsichord - Frank Ferko
Triptych for Harpsichord was composed in the spring of 2000 for harpsichordist Tatiana Zenaishvili. Ms. Zenaishvili gave the world premiere of the work in a concert in Rachmaninov Hall in Moscow, Russia on January 25, 2001. She subsequently performed the American premiere at a concert in Lutkin Hall in Evanston, Illinois on April 17, 2001. Triptych for Harpsichord employs formal concepts which were commonly used in harpsichord works of the 17th and 18th centuries- toccata, variations and fugue- but no attempt was made to simulate a baroque musical style. The theme upon which the second movement is based is an old, Russian folk song. The variations have maintained the tonal style of the original melody. The fugue subject used in the third movement is based on a theme introduced in the toccata movement. c. 10:58.
