Concerto grosso for orchestra with piano obbligato / Edward Primrose.

Work Overview

In one continuous movement, the Concerto Grosso follows the shape of a conventional three movement classical concerto beginning with a moderately fast section, followed by a slow section, then a fast section. The title is a reference to another three movement work: the Concerto Grosso for String Orchestra with Piano Obbligato of Ernst Bloch which dates from 1925. As for the earlier work, the tile of the new work is an indication of the place the piano has in the ensemble - that of a featured orchestral instrument rather than a necessarily virtuosic solo part with accompaniment.

Originally composed in 2004, it has been since revised in 2010 and again 2013.
