Concerto for piano and orchestra : [piano reduction] / Stephen Cronin.
by Stephen Cronin (1989)
Concerto for Piano and Orchestra (1989) was dedicated to and premiered by the pianist, Kevin Power. The demanding piano part represents a shift from the piano's traditional role in a concerto, and rather than engaging in a typical dialogue with orchestra maintains an almost continuous thread of sound throughout. The relative dramatic importance of the orchestral part varies from simple accompaniment to outright assertion. Throughout, the piano seems to maintain itself as an independent voice.
