Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Before beginning work on the Concerto I spent long time considering its form and structure. Ultimately, I decided to write a work (eventually completed in 2017) that would oscillate between the eminently dazzling, virtuosic piano concertos of Prokofiev and the opulent tonal colours of the piano music of Messiaen. The Concerto is also written in such a way that it can be performed not only by outstanding piano virtuosos, but also by pianists at middle and higher music school levels.
    The work consists of three movements:
    Allegretto affetuoso
    Lento mistico misterioso
    Moderato sostenuto – Presto appassionato
    The virtuosic, motoric first movement refers most to musical gestures from Prokofiev’s concertos. The second movement is a display of shimmering timbres and dazzling tonal colours, in both the solo part and in the orchestra. The third movement is a virtuosic dialogue between piano and orchestra, leading to a fiery Coda.
