Sheet Music: Score
Concerto for violin and five instruments / Lawrence Whiffin.
by Lawrence Whiffin (1999)
There are three movements, each setting out to resolve an unusual compositional problem. The first 'allegro' type movement demonstrates the contradiction of atonal writing within traditional sonata form; the second slow movement does the opposite - a free atonal melody unfolding in lush surroundings making it sound tonal; the third movement juxtaposes disparate ideas, notably 'allegro' themes with the Bach choral Christus, der ist mein Leben which brings the work to its conclusion.
