Leontius’ Song (2008) for soprano and piano uses text of the homonymous song from the author’s novel About Leontius and Black Girl, a story about the pirate and his cruel girl. The structure of the composition was based on kaleidoscopically arranged different atmospheres and tempos.
Variations for piano are based on the firm structure of harmonic propositions exposed in the author’s theme. This, initially modal stream, is occasionally disintegrated by dramatically virtuoso variations, which spread the tonal curve of modal harmonic structure.
