Concerto Grosso No. 1
MetadataShow full item record
This concerto is the composer’s conversation with the past. In four movements, each one embodies a traditional musical form. The work is a continually transforming kaleidoscope of relentless virtuosity, fanciful flights of harmony and melody, and unapologetic shifts in timbre and texture. Although conceived in four separate movements, the entire work is without intervening pauses. The concerto grosso is scored for flute, violin, piano, and string orchestra, and is approximately twenty-five minutes in duration.
