Unfortunately the "Variations for piano and orchestra" composed by Pavel Haas in Theresienstadt in 1944 are lost. Only his piano suite Op.13 and a few smaller piano pieces, songs and some chamber music sompositions are preserved. Two beautiful song cycles are particularly noteworthy: the "7 folk songs" and the late cycle "4 songs based on Chinese poetry". Very popular and often performed is his “Suite for oboe and piano” (1939).

“Quand je joue le ‘Polyptyque’ de Frank Martin, je ressens la même responsabilité, la même exaltation qu’en jouant la Chaconne de Bach”.

Yehudi Menuhin
